Finisher Time: 01:20:35 - (17/55)

Swim - 300M - 06:37 - 8/55
I loved that swim! Good sensation are coming back. Felt great to get out of the water with few of the first swimmers.

Transition 1 - 01:24
I don't think I could have done better. 

Bike - 11 miles - 37:00 - (17/55)
I had really good sensation, I love my bike! 
The stuff I hate is that bike computer that zhom bought... I lost it in the ditch & it must have taken me 2 to 3 minutes to find the $&@&$ thing! Not to mention I was afraid of crossing a snake! lol
Anyway, I found it & it will go back to store next week...
I was averaging about 19 mph if not... Still room for improvement. :)

Transition 2 - 01:19
I was too slow putting on my shoes... Decided not to wear socks... Forget my bib, came back... What a mess! Lol

3 Miles Run - 34:13
OMG can I be any slower than that really??? Ewwwww... No socks + wet feet = blisters = not good!

Ok so the good thing is that I am back in freestyle even if at the end of the swim it took everything in me not to switch to breaststroke! :)
I didn't feel any jello legs after the bike... Maybe it's because of the jump rope training... I don't know...
I felt great on the bike.
Let's just say I have to improve on the run... Shoudln't be that hard right since I am that slow!!! lol

Finisher Time: 01:26:04

Swim - 600M - 12:22  (2:03/100M)
Loved it for once! The only thing that I was mad about was my disposable chip, It was too lose & made me bleed. So now I have a sun tan mark + bloody scratch... Super sexy! lol
I could have swim faster but I got used to long distance swimming... I've got to train on that aspect for the rest of the season! :)

Transition 1 - 1:59
Was ok, a little slow. But we were in the grass & I had to clean my feet... :) 

12 Mile Bike - 36:17 - 19.91 M/Hour - 32.04 Km/H
Loved the bike leg!
Except that my right shifter popped up when I was cruising downhill on the first bridge... Forget about switching gears after that... Ewwww bummer!!! lol 

I saw it as a sign that I'm going tomorrow afternoon to the bike shop to try that beautiful Cannondale! lol

My thighs were burning @ the end! 

Transition 2 - 1:35

3 Mile Run - 33:49 (11:16/M)
What can I say... I really need to train on that & reach @ least a 10:00/M speed!

Overall, I felt really good at the finish line. It made me really happy because I didn't train since the Ironman April 1, 2012. :)

Last year I finished in 01:31:16.

Next triathlon is suppose to be an Olympic distance @ the end of August... I've got to find another sprint before that! :)

Super Sprint Tri Girl Triathlon - Houston, TX

Sunday May 13, 2012

"Happy Mother's Day"

200 yards Swim - 8 miles Bike - 2 miles Run

Weather: Cloudy & Windy

Woke up @ 4:30 AM, had a bagel with nutella & coffee.
Drove for about 1 hour to Alexander Deussen Park. It was 64 degrees Fahrenheit & I had to drive with the top open to fit my bike... I was cold! I was hoping it would not rain! :)

Atmosphere was really neat, so different with just the girls! Lot's of pink, purple & turquoise. Ladies were just talking with everybody & that was a nice feeling. Usually race morning is kind of quiet in transition area, today we heard a lot of laughter which was cool!

Swim (11/63)
Was tough, lot's of big waves for a lake! I started the swim really good in the front, but after 50 meters, I helped 2 ladies that were panicking from the previous wave. They were screaming for the lifeguard who had no idea what to do, she couldn't control her canoe anymore & was bumping into the middle of the swimmers. I didn't really know what to do either except for yelling @ her to gave me her buoy so the ladies could rest (they were holding on to me @ this point a little too tight & I got kind of scared too!) & pushed her back on the side. I took the girls to another canoe. Then started swimming again, without my goggles. I was swimming freestyle faster than usual, was a little mad I guess thinking too bad I had that "delay"! That's one thing you don't deal with in long distance triathlon, people are able to control their swim.
Anyway, great workout! lol

Transition Swim/Bike
No socks, went fast except for me not finding my rack the first time... :)

Bike (25/63)
Started great & fast until my chain decided to give me a headache. I had to put it back in place 2 times, never went though that before in my life. Ended up in the ditch the second time, it was so stuck it block my wheel! Pissed me off! Then I started laughing... what a day! lol 
Landscape was great, in the middle of the forest, really nice!

Transition Bike/Run
Good & fast.

Run (41/63)
Well, always a snail! lol I run with a lady all the way, we spoke a lot too, decided to finish together. :) 

Overall (25/63)
My bike is going to the shop next week for repairs!
I will do that race again next year! The tee-shirt & the medal were cute! :) That would be the first time I will be wearing a race tee! :)


Next week-end I will be volunteering Friday & Saturday @ the Texas Ironman - The Woodlands, TX. Looking forward to it! :)

Next race will be on June 3, 2012 - Tejas Sprint Triathlon - Sugarland, TX

Memorial Hermann Ironman 70.3 Texas - Race Report

Saturday March 31, 2012

Drove to Galveston, TX in the morning, stopped on our way @ Subway for a sandwich. It was sunny & windy...
Zhom realized he had forgotten his bathing suit... I heard him say a few bird names... but we still had time to go buy one in the evening. :) 

We picked up our bib & package & checked in our bike.
Check out my new pink tires! lol

Then we went to see the swim portion...
Man it's seemed really long! lol

I had to check the water... I wasn't sure if I wanted to use my wetsuit/shorty... because I'm not comfortable swimming with it... But the water was not really warm - 70 degrees F...
On that picture I am trying to look at the last buoy that seems so far away...

Swim finish was amazing, really well put together, never experienced a swim finish that great before!

Didn't have the chance to see Lance Armstrong on Saturday... Asked zhom to take a picture with the add instead... I was like... "Ok hurry, I must look like a moron"!!!  But that' ok, @ least I made some people laughed! Oh well!!! lol 

So that was athlete check-in day... Went to Academy for zhom & had a pasta dinner @ Olive Garden.
The hotel was nice & quiet, I slept from 9:00 PM to 3:00 AM.

Sunday April 01, 2012

Woke up @ 4:45 AM, had one bagel with peanut butter & coffee.
We arrived a little late @ the race, parked 1 mile away... We had only 30 minutes before the transition would close. Started to walk fast & I realized I had forgotten my helmet in the car when we saw the transition! I was so mad!!! Left everything to zhom & started running back like a crazy person... 2 miles, I've never run so fast in my entire life... Good thing I made it! What a warm up!
Set up my transition, realized I had forgotten my sunglasses... That sucked!

Anyway, we were in the last waves & went to the swim finish to see the pros & Lance Armstrong get out of the water. That was great! They swam so fast! And yes we saw him! :)

Swim - 1.2 Miles - 00:50:21
I was the only one with a shorty... way to go girl! lol
I've never swam in the ocean before (for a triathlon)... but swimming with the waves was not easy... The extra buoyancy of the salt-water didn't help me at all! I was even thinking of taking off my shorty @ one point... Yeah I know... desperate! lol
My time was not good considering I could swim faster, but I was glad to get off the water. I think this was the first time I didn't enjoy the swim.

Transition Swim/Bike - 00:08:52
Stripper helped me to get off of my shorty, they were fast & helpful.
I made sure I didn't see zhom's bike meaning he got off of the water! :)
I lost time putting on my cycling short & especially my top. I didn't feel tired if not, not like the last 70.3 I did.

Bike - 58 Miles - 03:46:28
As I was heading towards the sea wall, I saw Lance Armstrong finishing the bike. He looked great on it, he was going so fast!
I just hate riding with wind!!! Somebody tells me how it's possible to ride head wind on the way in (and just think on the way back to motive myself to made it though) & just after 3 miles on the way back to hit the wind again??? That killed me!
Landscape was wonderful, lot's of pelicans, beach houses & RV camp, the smell of jasmine in the air. I know... so girly! :)

Transition Bike/Run - 00:05:00
Took my cycling shoes off to walk faster & easier to my spot. A new thing I will do from now on... :)
That's so weird how we cannot feel our legs after the bike portion but walking barefoot helped a lot!

Run - 13.1 Miles - 03:06:52
3 loops. I walked the first loop. Started running & walking the other two.
Was really hot & I started to feel the sun on my skin. Ouch! :)
I looked @ my watch 100 times to see if I would be able to beat my time... Made crazy calculations... but what can you do when the body doesn't follow? lol
Ran the last 1.5 miles to make it happen, yeah I'm so stubborn! I was so happy to cross the finish line under 8 hours! I know that's not good for some people but I don't care... I didn't train enough, had only 1400 km/bike & 3500m/swim under my belt, didn't even bother with the running part... :)

Finish time - 07:57:33 - Rank 2204/2670

When I meet zhom after, he was so happy to see me! We hugged, he was so afraid something could have happened to me on the swim portion! (I was too!) Man we had a long sweaty hug!
He finished in 06:30:47. :)
Then we realized with our crazy life, working 12 hours a day & having 2 little ones... we could never make it on a full ironman. The half is already hard on us, but that won't be the last one for sure.
That decision is not even sour to make, it's just not for us... :)
That race was really well organized, volunteers & crowd were amazing!

That just cool to be able to say: I competed once in my life on the same race as Lance Armstrong! :)

Special thanks to tata Mouni who looked after our 2 monkeys over the week-end!

Swimming Leg Portion - Panic mode...

Ok so, I bought the fancy triathlon wetsuit for Christmas for the swim portion of the half-ironman next week-end...
I tried it last Thursday & that was a disaster!
First of all, it wasn't really smart to wait that long to try it on... in the water... second of all, it wasn't really smart not to train period...
Well... We do what we can do right?

So... swimming breaststroke... try to stay under water long enough to kick the water... That's an experience! The extra buoyancy sent me straight to the surface... kick in the air... If someone was to tape me, I think I'd win some bucks on video gag! lol
Thought I could try again... yeah I'm kind of stubborn... same thing... then I try to swim different position, my back & my knee were killing me after 200m.

Instead of swimming 100m - 00:01:55, ended up around 00:02:25... Great!

BUT I tried the freestyle & the feeling was really good, around 00:01:39. So yes, that wetsuit is great for freestyle & being smart would mean to train on that... BUT... the race is in 7 days... So forget about it, I will never be able to swim 1.2 mile freestyle! 

I ended up taking it off & went back to the pool... Water was freezing, I turned blue!

Then just stopped going crazy & started thinking...
So... what can I do @ this point?... Hum...
I swam without a wetsuit in Austin for the half-ironman in October & promise myself I will never do it again... was hypothermic at the end... too early in the season to swim "naked"!
Then maybe I could add some weight on my ankle... Or cut the legs so at least my knee would not hurt me... Am I crazy or what? I need to keep that wetsuit to train on freestyle after that race.

So yesterday morning... I went shopping for a diving shorty = less coverage & thinner neoprene (3mm instead of 5mm).

I will try it this afternoon... hoping for better results... If not I'll be desperate & will end up finishing the bottle of wine tonight!

To be continued...

27 days to go...

Waouh...talking about time flies!!! I didn't see the winter go by...
This is the worst preparation ever for a half-ironman... The only stuff I did was biking & not enough until mid-January. I had bronchitis for about 3 weeks & not been able to breathe correctly messed up my preparation. I did really good with fitness & nutrition this time... Cannot seem do it right all the way!

But that's ok right?

Even if I don't go @ the pool, I can expect to swim ok... Why is that anyway? Can't it be the same for biking & running?

Knee Stretches - Prevent Injuries

I had a ski accident when I was a teenager. Since then, even after several treatments, my right knee stayed weak... Getting older & running doesn't help... but with stretches exercises, I can manage to run a little bit more without pain...

The knee is the most commonly injured joint in all age groups. It is especially susceptible to damage during athletic activities and exercise. However, stretching and strengthening the muscles and tendons of the knee joint can help reduce risk of injury. 

Stretching is not warming up! It is, however, a very important part of warming up. Warming up is divided into three phases:

  1. general warm-up
  2. stretching
  3. sport-specific activity
It is very important that you perform the general warm-up before you stretch. It is not a good idea to attempt to stretch before your muscles are warm (something which the general warm-up accomplishes).
Warming up can do more than just loosen stiff muscles; when done properly, it can actually improve performance. On the other hand, an improper warm-up, or no warm-up at all, can greatly increase your risk of injury from engaging in athletic activities.

Quadriceps Stretch

Stretch the front of your knee. Do a quadriceps stretch by sitting in a rocking chair. Keep your feet firmly on the ground. Gently rock back and forth. This knee stretching exercise stretches both knees at the same time. You can also do this exercise in a four-legged chair. While sitting in the chair, slide your body forward until you feel a stretch along the front of your knee. Slide back into the chair. Repeat.
Do a standing stretch. Hold onto the back of a chair. Lift your leg up, as if touching your heel to your butt. Grab your foot. Stretch your thigh muscle as far as you can. Hold this position for as long as you can. Return to original position. Repeat. Do the same with your opposite leg.

Do a side stretch. Lay on your side with your legs together. Bend your upper leg and grab your ankle. Gently pull your leg up and away from your other leg. Pull until you feel your thigh muscles stretch. Hold for 20 seconds. Return to original position. Roll over and repeat with other side.


Hamstring Stretch

Sit on a flat surface. Extend your legs in front of you. Gently lower your abdomen and attempt to touch your nose to your knees. To further the stretch, hold onto the bottom of your feet.

Do a vertical hamstring stretch. While standing, bend over and touch your toes. Stretch as far as you can and let your hands touch the floor. To increase your knee stretch, step onto a stair, then bend over and stretch as far as you can.

Calf Stretch

Stand and face a wall. Place your hands against the wall with your arms outstretched and your elbows straight. Keeping your left knee slightly bent, turn the toes of your right foot slightly inward. Take a step back about one to two feet with your right leg. Keep your heel and foot flat on the floor. Your right leg calf muscle should be stretched at this point. Hold for 20 seconds. Then, bend your right knee. Keep your heel and foot flat on floor. Hold for 20 seconds. Repeat this exercise with your left leg.

What to eat & drink after a workout?

I changed my work hours from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM... It is saving me 1:30 h each day in traffic... I call that improvment! :)

5:45 AM: Waking up
6:15 AM: Leaving the house
6:20 AM: Dropping one monkey @ the day care
6:30 AM: Driving to work. Good thing they offer coffee at the day care, I'm kind of having breakfast in the car... I always take something to eat from home, a bagel or a cereal bar... something not to messy... Don't laugh, I'm driving for one boring hour in traffic... got to find something to do right? :)
7:30 AM to 4:30 PM: Working
4:30 PM: Driving to the day care
5:30 PM: Picking-up monkeys
5:45 PM: Home, preparing dinner for monkeys & baths...
8:15 PM: Monkeys in bed
8:20 PM: Jumping into sports clothes & starting to train...

So... let's just say that trying to add the task to plan meals or snacks after I'm done is another story... BUT... I've read that what you eat after a workout is very crucial.
Ok... where is the chef?

The post workout meal is one of the most important meals for the day which can either improve or damage the overall fitness...  

Why you should eat after your workout?

During a training session, you spend one, two, or maybe more hours depleting your body's energy stores, and pound the muscles. That is why, it's essential to replenish it so that you can recover as quick as possible and begin the next session with ease. Building lean muscles and maintaining them takes a lot of work, and exercise provides you the stimulus to adapt to it. Your body also requires energy from the kind of food which it intakes to supply enough energy.

What to eat after completing your workout?

Besides water, the
best thing to eat after a workout should contain 2 things: protein and carbohydrate. After every cardio and weight training exercises, you need to replenish your body with foods which are high in protein and carbs. Also, keep a note of how many calories you are consuming. Depending on the number of calories burned, you should eat half of that amount. In order to know what to eat after a workout to build muscles, you should strive to consume rapidly-absorbing protein shakes. Apart from these, here are some more suggestions:
  • Eggs and toast
  • Fresh vegetable or fruit juice
  • Brown bread vegetable sandwiches
  • Brown bread chicken sandwiches
  • Low fat ice cream
  • Cottage cheese and fruit
  • Protein or energy bar/shake
  • Cereal and skim milk
  • Vegetable omelet with brown bread
  • Dried fruits and nuts (unsalted)
  • Almond butter & jelly sandwich
  • Yogurt with a half cup of granola
  • 1 cup of cereal with milk & sllices of banana
What not to eat after your workout?

Always stay away from eating any foods which contain fat in them, especially after a workout because it slows down your body's absorption rate (absorb nutrients) and digestion of proteins and carbohydrates.

When should you eat?

In the first hour after you finish the workout, it's considered to be your body's "golden hour", which means that the glycogen stores get depleted and the enzymes convert the glucose into glycogen. This glucose is consumed and replaced in the muscles for lost glycogen. Along with best foods to eat after a workout, replenishing lost fluids through sweat is also necessary.
Within half an hour post workout, you should rehydrate and replace the lost glycogen from your body.

Then you can finally go to bed & start over the next day! :)

Natural Immune System Boosters

Ok so it's not the time to get sick a month & a half away from my first race of the season... the Memorial Hermann Ironman 70.3 Texas...

I've been dealing with bronchitis for 2 weeks, only able to bike. Couldn't breathe good enough to run and I was afraid to get worse if I went to the pool in the evening... And not to mention I'm lazy & it's cold & dark outside... I love our subdivision pool but not in the winter... :)

So, I've been reading a lot of articles on how to naturally boost our immune system. 

And for some reasons I remember some info... like strawberries, nuts & dark chocolate are really good... :) 
So here is a nice idea for an after training session in the evening... chocolate covered strawberries... well @ least it was for us! :)

Regularly eating fresh fruits and vegetables is the natural way to boost your immune system. 
Natural foods that are high in Vitamins A, C, and E, B-6, zinc and folic acid are beneficial in supporting the immune system.

Here are some of the best choices to help build a strong immune system:
Foods high in vitamin C: berries, broccoli, cantaloupe, cauliflower, grapefruit, honeydew, kale, kiwi, nectarines, oranges, peppers, sweet potatoes, strawberries, and tomatoes.

Foods rich in vitamin E: broccoli, carrots, chard, mustard, turnip greens, mangoes, nuts, papaya, pumpkin, red peppers, spinach, and sunflower seeds.

Beta-carotene: apricots, asparagus, beets, broccoli, cantaloupe, carrots, corn, green peppers, kale, mangoes, turnip, collard greens, nectarines, peaches, pink grapefruit, pumpkin, squash, spinach, sweet potatoes, tangerines, tomatoes, and watermelons.

Bioflavonoids: citrus fruits, dark chocolate, black & green tea.

Antioxidant minerals: can be found in some meats, seafood's, nuts and whole grains.

Foods with zinc: oysters, red meat, poultry, beans, nuts (almond), sunflowers seeds, lentils, seafood, whole grains, and diary products (cheddar cheese, yogurt).

Selenium: Brazil nuts, tuna, beef, poultry, fortified breads, and grain products.    

Also ginger, honey, royal jelly...

Why an ironman?

Well... I don't really know! It just came in my mind one day... Must have been a hell of a day!
I remember thinking in 2004 when I finished my first marathon... I'll never do that stuff again! It was so painful! 
Then I watched the ironman competition on TV & my first thought was: "These people must be out of their mind!" lol

I started triathlon not so long ago, in 2006. Before that what?

Middle School - Handball & Track
High School - Handball & Swimming
College - Swimming

Track & Road Cycling - 1978 To 1984
I loved the track! This is Le Havre track, it wasn't on great shape. I remember small rocks falling from the top of the rack... it was scary, I had always in my mind the thought of hitting a rock & falling... but I loved it! I was going there to train 3 times a week in the evening & on Saturday afternoon. My parents would sit on the stairs & watch us. Last time I saw them I asked them if they were bored waiting for us, especially because my brother started cycling 3 years before me... so for about 10 years they sat on concrete stairs... They said they had a great time meeting with the other parents that became their friends... Hum...   
Now it's closed...

Swimming - 1982 To 1991

Long break after college...

I remember one Saturday evening after I got the finalized divorce paper in the mail, Mathieu was @ his dad & I was sitting at the beach smoking & looking at the horizon... (yeah, I smoked for 3 weeks @ that crazy time...). Then thinking: "what the hell am I doing here? That's not me... Who am I? Who did I become these past years?" That's pretty scary when you don't know what you're doing anymore & you realized you gave up a lot of things that made who you are... including sports...
I went back to my car & drove to the store. I spent my trimester bonus on running & swimming stuff. I was so happy to buy running shoes, I almost slept with them!
The next day I woke up early & went to the forest... When I started running, lots of memories came back & I felt so good! That was the beginning of my new life... and that happiness, nobody will ever take it away from me. :) 
I still have that "galet" on my shelf that I brought home that evening... I know it may sounds crazy but I just cannot get rid of it... :)

Moving to the States in 1999.
I didn't have a work permit & was bored @ home, couldn't find anything else to do that was not costing me a fortune than swimming, mountain biking & running. 

Anyway, in 2006 I started triathlon with sprint distance, then last year I did an Olympic & a half-ironman... Call me crazy but I just love the feeling of being able to finish something different, I don't care about timing... and that's a good thing because I suck at it! lol
I love the atmosphere of the race & meeting new buddies each time... the harder it gets, the more you see everybody supporting each other & that kind of feeling is hard to find anywhere else. :)

So here I am, thinking ironman... I know that will be a lot of training, dedication & motivation but I'm slowly preparing for it. :)

Half-Marathon Houston, TX

We did it! lol
It wasn't my first race with Mathieu, we did several 5K, 1 10K together since he was a kid... But it was his first half-marathon. :) 

We had breakfast like it would be a "normal" day... Well, I had a coffee with a bagel & nutella.
He had hot chocolate, 1 croissant & a bagel with jam... I told him he'd better stop eating except if he wanted to be sick on the race!  

Weather was perfect, cold & sunny, not too windy.
We started running together @ an easy pace. We were fine, it was a lot of fun around us between the people on the side of the road & the runners. Really good & friendly atmosphere.
We passed the 5K mark & Mathieu was still making jokes... same for the 10K. Then I started asking him if he was ok... he was so silent all of the sudden! lol
He was fine until mile 9, then he decided to walk.
He started to get cramps on his calf, back was hurting, blisters on feet... you know the story if you ran a half-marathon without any training before!... :) I wanted to stay with him but he asked me to go... so I did because the last thing I wanted is to get on his nerves...
I was lonely after that, counting the miles, one after the other... Wondering if he was ok...
He finished in 02:38:44, I did in 02:30:09. It was a nice long run training for me.  
We meet inside the expo center, he was tired & realized how much training you need to put into a half to finish it in good shape.

We had a great time together, I enjoyed every minute of it thinking that may be the last time I would be running with him! ♥

He enjoyed meeting the Texan's cheerleaders afterwards... He was all better then! lol
Now he left to go to his friends house, proudly wearing his finisher tee-shirt. :)

Happy New Year!

Ok so we are in 2012, I'm not going to talk about resolution because really?... How often do we follow with these anyway?

I have a dream... some people may think of it as a nightmare but that would be fine too! lol

That dream would be easy to realize if it wasn't for the motivation & the training it involves... Hello??? I called it a dream for a reason! :)

Anyway... I can say it now: "Next year I will register for an ironman"... Yes in 2013... And that will be this one right here in Texas:

At first I thought since it will be my big thing, I might as well travel & make it fancy in another State... but that would be too much logistic... Hey if I can finish it, that will be fancy already! And the bike & run course are flat on this one!

So I'd better go back in training mode... starting today because since 70.3 Austin, I didn't do anything...

Coming up:

Half-Marathon Houston - January 15, 2012

70.3 Ironman Galveston - April 1, 2012
