Back to Subic…

Hi everyone,
It has been a little more than a week since I’ve arrived in Subic Bay.
That is my first trip overseas and my first training camp of this year. My main goal of this period it is start my preparation for Brasil Ironman whose it will take place in Florianopolis in the end of May.
My first challenge was to bit the over 30 hours trip since I left Sao Paulo Airport to arrive in Subic. The first days it is quite “funny” to see how your body is struggling to adapt with the 11 hours jet leg, everything it seems to be out of place, but in the end it is very easy to understand why…. When I should be sleeping I am out there training….when I should be training or eating I am sleeping…so everything upside down. Because of that it is very normal to wake up in the middle of the night very hungry or be very, very tired at 5pm but however not be able to sleep anymore after 3am. Just for my lucky I could over take this situation very quickly in just few days, but then I got another problem to solve: Temperature and Humidity. Thanks for God my room has air condition but once I put my feet out of the door it looks like I am getting into a sauna, what it very hard to just stand out there, so now you can image to have to run interval in the track at 11 am!!!!!!! Thanks for that doc!!!!!
So here I am…I would say trying much more to adapt than to prepare myself, however next Wednesday I will fly to Malaysia to race my first Ironman for this season and I am looking forward to do it and hoping to get a good day over there.

Ola a Todos,
Ja faz um pouco mais de uma semana que eu cheguei a Subic Bay –Filipinas.
Essa é minha primeira viagem e training camp fora do continente nesse ano. Minha principal meta nesse período será iniciar meu trabalho intensivo focando o Ironman Brasil no final do mês de Maio.
Meu primeiro desafio foi vencer a longa viagem de mais de 30 horas desde a hora que deixei o Aeroporto de São Paulo até chegar na minha acomodação em Subic.
Os primeiros dias é um tanto quanto “engraçado”ver como seu corpo está sofrendo para se adaptar com as 11 hora de fuso horário, tudo parece não funcionar direito e na verdade é muito fácil de se entender porque, pois na hora que eu deveria estar dormindo e descansado eu estou treinando…na hora que eu deveria estar treinando ou comendo eu estou dormindo…ou seja tudo vira de cabeça para baixo então é bem freqüente acordar no meio da noite morrendo de fome ou estar morrendo de sono as 5 horas da tarde mas mesmo assim não conseguir mais dormir depois das 3 da manha!
Para minha sorte eu consigo me adaptar rápido e com alguns dias tudo já parecia mais instável e então comecei a treinar lentamente com mais qualidade, então tive que começar a lidar com um outro probleminha de adaptação: CALOR E UMIDADE. Graças a Deus meu quarto possui ar condicionado o que pelo menos me deixa relaxar enquanto estou descansando, mas é só colocar o pé para fora da porta que a sensação de estar dentro de uma sauna já vem com tudo. Se já é complicado desconfortável apenas sair da casa imaginem correr as 11 da manha numa pista de atletismos!!!!!
Bem assim estou aqui me adaptando muito mais do que me preparando nesses primeiros dias que se passaram por melhor dizer, mas graças a Deus tudo vem correndo como esperado e nessa próxima quarta feira já estarei embarcando para competir minha primeira prova: O Ironman da Malásia que acontece no próximo sábado dia 28. Conto com torcida de todos e para quem quiser acompanhar a prova online estará sendo transmitida a partir das 18:00 do dia 27 ai no Brasil no site www.ironman.com
Um abraço a todos,

Triathlon Internacional de Santos

santos-i

Hi,
I was in Santos last Sunday to race the most competitive Olympic distance Triathlon in Brazil: “International Triathlon of Santos”.
Last couple years I have been in the podium with a 2nd position in 2007 and 3rd in 2008, but I knew I could do better once it is a non drafting race what always help me against another athletes because time trial it is what I like most to ride.
I had a better swim this year and exist the water around 30 seconds behind Paulo Miashiro who had won the race twice before, I was felling my legs very strong riding my P3 and with only 8 min I was already passing Paulo and get myself in first position.
Around 20 km on the course we had a U-turn to come back to town, after that I could feel a soft tail wind but it was enough to make me pick the pace and drop everyone else.
My last 15 km on the bike were very painful and I could not even drink water because my stomach was just burning with all the energy I was spending to open the gap to the other riders, by the time I got to T2 I had around 1min of head start to run my last 10km of the day, took me couple kms to get my legs to the right cadence but after I got I could run comfortable to the end and guarantee the higher place in the podium with a bonus of the new course time record.
This race it is a bit special for me, it was in this same course in 2000 when I did my first Olympic distance race of my life winning my age group category, well…it was long 9 years until I will be able to win on the pro field, many hard moment were necessary to be overtake but I finely did, so I am very happy about it.
