Sunday relax after long workout, im sorry for the muffintop ;)

heating up

Back on track!!!!

I am back to usual training routines. Coming back from altitude was very beneficial but i ended up not knowing any "official" version of my break down... even with further analysis...

anyway, when i started feeling strong again i was informed that i wouldn't be in the long distance World champs witch will take place next weekend. i found it very odd, i was actually hoping and confident that i would still do well there even with a less than ideal preparation. I was a bit mad about it..

So now i am left with another IM to prepare, IM louisville that gave a 3rd place in 2008  and surely will enjoy going back. Training has been good and weather is REALLY hot right now, hitting the 35º 40º in some days...NICE as long there is water around im in heaven ;)

I'm in the middle of a 3 week block ending this weekend followed by a easy week. And in august i will have a 11 day shock therapy and taper afterwards. In that hard period i will have a week in Tomar, my own spiritual spot that i haven't visit for a long time. really looking forward to it...

one week at home

And fortunately i have been feeling a LOT better. At least i can run with 50 heart beats lower and can ride at 200w without coughing a lung. feeling some energy is also good and the 30º+ temperature works wonders.

I did further exams and blood work to see if everything is alright so that i can sleep well knowing that i can wake up and go for a workout without worries.

As for whats next, that is a difficult question. i had the LD worlds scheduled and i still hope i can put some good effort there, we will how the following days shine. so far, without getting too excited about it, so good...
