100km Bienne race report: a mixed bag
What a strange race this was, with a feeling of really missing my goal yet at the same time objectively not doing too bad. Thing is, this was in some respects my 'A' race for this year, since I have geared my training since March specifically for this. I wa...

Looking back at Geneva Marathon 2018
I'm glad I waited a bit to write a short account - or rather a "lessons learned" - of the Geneva marathon this year, because at the time and for a while after it felt like a catastrophe, a complete meltdown. Now, I am putting it somewhat in perspective (tho...

10km Tour de Presinge: enjoying a shorter, faster race
As I was having a hard time in my recent training sessions hitting my target 10k pace of just under 4’30’’ (so’s to slip under 45mn), I really wasn’t very hopeful for the Tour de Presinge last Sunday, and was starting to wonder if even 47mn was possible. An...

Recovering from a sesamoid stress fracture
I've continued ramping up mileage and intensity, moving from 4h to now 6h30, including sprint intervals and hills - and the foot is still "holding", meaning that while I can still feel the occasional tension and weird soreness, there is nothing that prevent...

Gearing up...
Finally I feel like I am back on track. A few niggles in the foot after a short intervals speed session on Monday but nothing that would make me think that the injury isn't well on its way to mending - just a question of not re-injuring my foot or anything ...

A new hope?
I couldn't help the Star Wars reference... Anyway, after my silly three days in a row that re-inflamed my sesamoid, I took off 10 days and started aqua-running, doing 30"/30" intervals in the pool... Last weekend I did some long intervals followed by a reco...

Staying motivated...
So my
foot’s better - after not being great again. I guess running three days in a row, with hills,
a speed test and sprints was not a brilliant idea. Ten days off and went for an
hour run with some tempo paces and it’s ok this morning, though I can feel
so...

Last run of the year, first run of a new season
Well, due to an almost three-month running hiatus due to my sesamoid stress fracture, the start of the new training-cycle-season coincides with the New Year! I picked up slowly end November and have been running for pleasure, anywhere from 20mn to 1h10, wit...

A hopeful return to running
First run in just over two months this morning, woo-hoo! Well, I
won’t celebrate too soon, since the stress fracture I experienced was (is?) on
the sesamoid just below the big toe, which apparently makes it one of the more
troubling injuries to have (one we...

A (very different) start to a new season
After 2016, where I tackled new challenges and learned a lot but fell short, 2017 has been highly satisfying. Two successfull finishes at two tough races, both actually surpassing my previous longest distance of 168km (though that was in the sand and desert...
