What feeds athletes? from Vincent Miguel on Vimeo.

“Fais de ta vie un rêve, et d’un rêve, une réalité.” and that’s what drives athletes, professional and non, “the dream”. The dream of finishing a great race, the dream of winning a great race, the dream to make people dream or simply, the dream of running fast. But to make that dream come true, the athlete will have to get through a process where he/she will learn how is body work? To listen to it, and to understand it, all crucial parts of training. And that is what we’ve tried to focus on in that short non-professional video: the spirit of sport.

That short video has been used in the passed in order to participate to a sponsorship competition.

Well apparently there are few things that need to be changed! Can you find them? Quite though innit?

Well due to those things I tend to have a sore shinbone after hard training sessions.

Hopefully I am working on it and I am sure it’ll pay off.

Being on the start line of the France Xterra Triathlon amid the best Xterra triathletes of the world means a lot of “lots of”: lots of professional men & women triathletes, lots of amateur men & women triathletes, lots of spectators, lots of loud music, lots of climbs, lots of sweat, lots of pain, and of course lots of happiness

Finished: 50th

Classic Bike Time: 9’07” | Average speed: 40.9 km/h | Max speed: 54 km/h

TT Bike Time: 8’50” | Average speed: 42.2 km/h | Max speed: 55 km/h

Conclusion: 17 seconds on a 6 km wold road, it could be almost 2’ on 40 km, I’d better use the TT more often!

"Your body can’t lie when running… Running is the sport that reveals all the weaknesses of your body: knees, tendons, ankles, muscles… one slight weakness, somewhere and I can assure you it’ll hurt some days" What my Sports Doctor told me the first day we met each other. Well, I believe he might be right. What he didn’t tell me however is that you can still use your body to it & deal with it. 

"An athlete is all the time on the edge… he is somewhere between being well and ill when he is in very good form" What a very experienced cyclist once told me. Well, I believe he might be right too. But this time he did tell me that you can use your body to it and deal with it.

The difference between knowing and practicing.

Have you ever wondered: why training that hard? And more than that actually: why feeling like training hard? Why feeling pleasure pushing your body over the limits? What is the aim of that journey?

I’d tend to say, with my honest experience, that we are determined to feel the body we are living into, we want to understand it, to control it, to discover how far can to go, to learn what training, what environment it needs to perform the best.

Once you get to the point you have gone through all this, you might then be able to accomplish the dreams you have, the dreams you get up for every morning.

As you might know it, triathlon consists of three sports: swimming, cycling and running. Therefore, you end up with three times more chances to forget something at home. And even small things can thwart your plans, such as goggles still on your desk instead of in your transition bag.
 Here is a list, it could certainly be completed, send me ideas.
