posted at 09:44

Spokes broken during the race!
Yes i did It!
Finisher 70.3 Vietnam frustrated. After a careful swimming without wetsuit and dotted with jellyfish I get out well of water 35' (200/1200) and 15th in my age group.
A Long transition 800m, I took my Cannondale bike slice for my 90k to go.
I was riding really well at 36 km / h average up to 51 km when my spoken of my rear wheel broke.
I took 20' to repair but I had the brake pads were still froter on my wheel. The last 40 km were very difficult because I could not change gears and I was on the small plate.
Therefore I leave my bike at 2h52 about 31.5km/h average.
So the running was also difficult, and I couldn't have expressed myself as training.
I picked a slot that will be for next time.

My Come back

posted at 14:20 in "NEWS"

2015 ended with goals not achieved. Indeed I was ill from January to March 2015. 
Yep ! whooping-cough and I saw the end of the tunnel towards the month of June, I start all of my activities slowly. The real recovery was in July 20, 2015 still(?) with my Coach Guy Hemmerlin Endurance training concept.

To start the year properly, I decided to begin my training in the Thailand Training Camp for three weeks with my friend Jürgen Zack.
Why that choice ? I need to regain my balance and sporty power. To do so I train myself , 2 or 3 workouts per day with the best amateur and professional who follow Jürgen’s training program. Who by the way, is still the leader in the training/workout/… area here in Thailand.

Arrival December 31, 2015 in Phuket, resumed workouts accompanied by Camille of course. Homecoming knowledge, friends are here. Especially our friends met 3 years ago and with whom we had stayed in contact Olivier Baillet, Anne Lavandon and their childrens.
It was so fun! We spent four days together training, taking our time to enjoy what was all around us. We were Really just happy to meet again. And not forgetting Sue Thornley.

My training went well: 22 hrs per week, wake up at 5 am in order to swim whereas in the swimming pool or in the sea, or to bike (fast and slow group group),

The weather in January is really perfect, especially for us who leave in Reunion Island. it's much like our climate.

Moreover Camille and I, love the different road trips that take place after each training camp.
For the 3rd time, we are about to ride From Bangkok to Phuket! The distance between the 2 cities is around 850 km ! and probably we will on for 1000 with extra loops. It is still challenging to do this with only our bikes !

The pertularity difficulty of this road trip is that we run after biking and in the evening we swim in the sea (or in the swimming pool) depending on where we stay. We will reach almost 30hrs of workouts per week.
Some will say that we are all fools.. But this is what we enjoy ! I feel so lucky because Camille and I are in symbiosis in our married life and sports.

At the end of this journey I would choose my race. probably Ironman 70.3 in May and one again in June to feel well before this tour. 2017 to be able to retry again on a Full Ironman.
That’s a distance that i love.

Finally, I would like to thank not quite my sparring partner loved and Camille.
I thank Guy Hemmerlin whose/for all of his advice and support that were always very constructive and his progressive plans that/which allowed me to be ready for this training camp. 

Finally I would like to thank all people and compagny to help me for some is now historical Usual and for whom I have a special affection.
Thanks also Cannondale and Cyclozone Réunion

And thank you to my children for all their support.

I chose to start this year by 70.3 formula , I would be back Australian ground this time in Busselton, the information I have, " it's going to go fast ."
For myself, I had a regular training with a more qualitative preparation and I a decrease of approximately 2 hours per week .

This year is pretty special I would not do for my Full schedule is very busy : work and some personal projects important.
However, Probably be on the Indian Ocean Triathlon in Mauritius in November for the second part of the year to find my pots partners and sponsors. This year has been a very tough year in aid of sponsors to be able to put some international races so I can raise my level.
I don’t know yet BUSSO ( Busselton ) and 2km long pier at sea, I have a preview soon , a taste before making the choice for the 2015 IRONMAN FULL .
