the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 30,200 Km                    result:  4h 17mn 22s

comment : The year began badly with the white trail to 4h17mn Serre-Chevalier (30km) and a big knee pain from the second km .... so before the complications and to determine the end of the story towards ultrasound .... otherwise the path where great sinking at least 20cm to 80% on every stride of the circuit .... Support different, ankles suffering and reinforce, in short, a good training for the trails without snow .... And besides great weather except the head wind for at least 7 km ....
Go very happy when I recommend this race!

comment : I did an error in trying to do too much this morning on the small loop of 4.6 km to the Garoupe with accelerated too quickly and asphyxiation after 1.5 km on the first climb: bad, I had to keep training my pace yesterday ..... the good news is any more pain at the knee .... The bad news third V1 third but not podium ....  it does not matter!

the race Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 15,000 Km                    result:  1h 14mn 01s

comment : With 500m over to run from this 15km race today, I improve my time by 20 seconds from last year, with no trace of fatigue, so happy, but a small regret: I should have m 'pull a little on the first 5 km instead of just looking to provide a cushy waiting for the rise ....!

332 – 12th February: foulée croisienne - La Croix Valmer (83)

the race Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 11,000 Km                    result:  55mn 41s

comment : First edition of this race for me, and pleasantly surprised by this course mid-road, mid-trail down the runway though hilly, offering fine recovery.
After 2.5 km of false flat down on the road and a very quick departure from the first, it's 4km of track mounted ahead: not knowing the percentage I am a bit reserved about this part here , a bit too much, which made ​​me take risks on 2-3km downhill on gravel track well (trail experience was beneficial on this one) and I could keep going on last part tarmac uphill.
Finally a good timing, and this is not the temperature below 0 ° which prevented me to take a lot of fun on this course fully stocked with supplies (3, but I've used only one) .
An organization and a very nice welcome in this race that I recommend for a paltry fee of 9 euros!

333 – 19th February: les 12 km - Gorbio (06) www.asgorbio.com

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 11,700 Km                    result:  59mn 07s

comment : 2 minutes less than last year on this 12 km from Gorbio well with an undulating wall 700m final in 59min, but 3 minutes of my record on this course .... yes, speed is a bit over ..... not a severe weather super nice and a pleasure to do this journey that has remained the same after several editions since the organization is always perfect with a welcome on top!

334 – 26th February: half-marathon - Cannes (06) www.semi-cannes.org

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 21,100 Km                    result:  1h 44mn 56s

comment : Okay, well this morning I had gone in great shape with a hare of great quality (thank you Ali) for a small half-marathon flat along the Cannes Croisette: a quiet start at 13km / h, normal, although it is not at all my usual pace on the long run but why not try from time to time .... After 5km, my little hare has itchy feets, I give him a ticket out to do its race for him .....
Remaining alone, but accustomed to this situation, I keep my rhythm somehow during two rounds of rides until the 14th km, and then failure: no more juice, fuel, the engine air holes , starts at idle and not responding .....
Thankfully the 15th km of station allows me to refuel, but the time to warm the machine, I had lost more than 6mn on my predictions, and, disappointed by a loss of minutes impossible to catch up, but encouraged by fans, I puts the turbo way to save at least an average of 12km/h which I still want to be faithful ....
Phew, the average is still going!

335 – 04th March: trail des merveilles - Breil sur Roya (06) www.aromsazur.com 

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect     

               distance : 20,000 Km                    result:  2h 35mn 12s

commentaire : 4th edition for this trail, and the fourth participation on my part, because the course is really nice, and the organization on top!
The goal for me is to improve my time as I did during the previous three editions. Knowing the course, I go quiet because we start with 6 km climb to 800m of elevation gain .... I reach the summit under the hour which was the goal and then proceed quietly for some 8km, which I can catch two dozen runners before attacking a small "wall" of 120 D + on a little less than a kilometer that breaks though the pace and legs ....
After this last difficulty I see my goal to beat my time is at hand, and I accelerate a little over a portion hilly but not too complicated .... All goes well until the appearance of a little hurt on stomach that makes me a little slow: well, only 3km, not to release, this is a technical descent, but hey .... Less than 2 minutes to arrival: contract done!

336 – 11th March: Panathlon du Cap - St Jean Cap Ferrat (06)

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 11,500 Km                    result:  55mn 59s

comment : A very nice little run in 3 rounds on Cap Ferrat. In the first round, I discovered the little surprises of the circuit, with a nice little climb that breaks though the pace, keeping a brisk pace, and the two rounds I used to try to keep this pace and enjoy this race for me a kind of "split".
Overall I am quite happy with this output remains an interesting preparation for my goal of 24 hours race in less than a month.

337 – 18th March: Riviera Classic - Vintimille / Monaco (98) www.fma.mc

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 23,800 Km                    result:  2h 00mn 22s

comment : A classic not to be missed by his unusual background of the sea, starting from Italy, through France to finish in Monaco.
24 km of road bumps completely secure with 2 selective hills (1st and 14th km), and a few reminders on flat or false flat. I took this course in intensive training with the aim to keep a steady pace and finished in 2 hours, done quietly (with 22 seconds more ... hihihihi)!
All is well, I stay in my own pace without getting too tired, and feel almost ready for the famous 24 hours in 3 weeks!

338 – 25th March: foulées du Baou - St Jeannet (06) www.ensemble-avec-benoit.com

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 10,180 Km                    result:  49mn 42s

comment : A nice little run with a hilly course I like. Today I enjoyed myself on this course by keeping a pace of 12km / h without too much speed and not burn me. This course is very nice in the woods, but it is mostly a race to be encouraged to work on bone marrow donation!

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 12,000 Km                    result:  1h 41mn 49s

comment : small warm-up at the end of the afternoon in a well rugged trail of 12km with a tour of the villages and direction the woods of Mirmande.... I find this course with constant reminders and beautiful bumps at 25-30% good to Itchy legs to 700m of D +, and a very nice landscape.
A leisurely pace, for me, under a bright sun waiting for the main course tomorrow morning, but before that, a very nice welcome from the organization with a pasta party served in the village church!

340 – 01st April: trail - Mirmande (26) www.trail-mirmande.com

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 45,000 Km                    result:  6h 15mn 11s

comment : This morning we do not laugh: the weather is slightly overcast, but, above all, lots of wind and suddenly it's pretty cool.
It starts, like yesterday, with a tour of the village and the hills and towards the woods of Mirmande. Knowing the beginning of the course, the same as yesterday, I go quietly, for me it will be my last long training before the 24h of next week.
A journey without much rugged virtually flat portions, except on one of the peaks along the wind farm, and always raises, and a nice little surprise at the end of last term with a brawny climb to add the final more than 2000m of D +.
The scenery is superb, the Drôme, the supplies on top, nothing is missing, in short, a pleasure to race in these conditions.
Throughout the course the wind did not quit, but, with the sun, it was not so cold that it eventually.
My race was as I had expected (7 km / h) and even a bit faster, and I am very pleased with this weekend in the Drôme where I had the opportunity to meet friends who always perfectly organize their races with a host on top!
Do not hesitate, make the move you will not regret it
.....

341 – 07th & 08th April: 24h - Saint-Fons (69)

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 110,113 Km                    result:  24h 00mn 00s

comment : It is not enough to be on top in preparation for a successful D-Day: this weekend so I take the departure of 24 in top form, the first 9 hours pass very well with an average of 10.5 km / h, and, suddenly, no more strength in the left leg .....
I stopped, I ate, I went back, but nothing to do, it won't start again ....
Probably too full of effort that I pay, I hit the 100km loop, go to bed and made ​​a slagging of 10km the next day, not too much history to draw on reserves and to rebuild a 24h very quickly.
Pity, because, apart from a small turn dry enough, the course was ideal for me and the organization
on top!

342 – 15th April: trail - Moulinet (06) www.traildemoulinet.fr

the race on Google Earth         my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 21,000 Km                    result:  03h 15mn 07s

comment : to get back into running quietly, it is with pleasure that I participate at this trail for the first time: the weather is not very good before departure and we are told of snow on the highest point at 1700m altitude . I cover myself, my belt, my canteen, and go for a ride I plan at least 3 hours, because there are still nearly 1,400 meters of D +.
The route is almost all the time in single-track right out of the village, the terrain is rocky, muddy and a little slippery sometimes with leaf litter.
Two big climbs and descents with some false flats between that can revive a little, but for my part I feel a lack of power so I do not insist and do the race in recovery mode except for the last descent of 5km where I am happy about the technical parts, which allows me to catch a dozen runners and finished in a time Hon.
A great organization with two beautiful pit stops along the route and a meal after the race at the top, a very pleasant journey through the landscape as by its technical race, highly recommend for future editions.

comment : a very nice little run in the hills of the Esterel, with a hilly course on trails well enough finally rolling.
Today I did the race as a hare to take a friend on the podium, contract done, as she finished third in the scratch, and for me a good workout.

344 – 29th April: half-marathon - Nice (06) www.nicesemimarathon.com

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 21,100 Km                    result:  01h 42mn 27s

comment : Well, on this half-marathon I go quietly and does not spend the first 10km in less than 47 or 48mn .... I pass 47mn in without getting too tired, so I still look the same with a small slowdown over the last 5 km, probably due to boredom to a flat course (smile), but finally I finished this half without really fatigue with a time acceptable as better than the half of Cannes two months ago.

345 – 01st May: course du muguet - Cantaron (06)

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 14,200 Km                    result:  01h 42mn 42s

comment : Two days after the half of Nice it's a small trail which I am dealing with a departure of a great portion of climb to 18%, and then the percentage decreases but the climb will take about 7km.
I start with a friend without leaving too much to pressure and especially to support her on this course she does not know. The "climb" is quietly in single-track with pit stops and a few well-placed small raises where I can push a little for my friend she still keeps a good pace: she is currently the fifth, but behind the girls cling, and before their are not that far.
On a portion of raises (successive ascents and descents) quite technical as full of stones, I gives a quick acceleration which allows her to outrun his pursuers, but before they hold up .....
The last three kilometers are slopes with slippery rocks though: I see that she maintains her position without taking any risk of injury from a fall: for me my "work" is finished, so I'm making a little fun down thoroughly by doubling some more cautious competitors, and ends with 20 minutes less than the time of last year on the same course!

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                        distance : 80,000 Km                    result:  15h 46mn 10s    STOPPED

comment :  run this trail is for me an enormous pleasure to the quality of reception and organization: it was like being at home thanks to volunteers who are very caring with the riders.

Once again I attack the famous 105km and 6600m of D +. The weather is good, so no reason not to finally finish this course. Departure is at 3:30 am: the first 30 kilometers pass easily, the day has dawned and I discovered, as every year, a beautiful landscape ..... but growing up I find myself closing my eyes to sleep at once walked, without really tired ..... good not having overslept the night before I give myself a micro-nap of 10 minutes, and direction Cobonne. The form is returned, everything is ok. Time I leave a good supply in top form, going under a fine rain to Mirabel but quietly, and then take direction and its famous Saillans little path.The rain stopped, the sun is there and also the start of the steep path: yet I give myself 10 minutes of micro-nap, pass the steep path and without too many issues regarding the attack on Saillans downhill at full speed. In my Chrono I have half an hour less than my time last year: here is cool!

After I leave compulsory medical control, confident, having still noticed that many competitors had stopped .....New climb, and new descent(both 25-30%), I go where I left off last year, and continues ... of course!I

end up with a competitor, Severine, and we decide to attack the 3 heads together and  not be alone with safety and support each other, but, after 10 km of climb, yet easy, j ' have a big wave of tiredness as I fell asleep again while walking .....Given the difficulty of the finish, my fatigue, and advice from the last check, I prefer stop there .... Grrrrr

comment :  After this weekend of trail, I take this climb as a kind of scouring, and put myself in the service of a friend as a hare to the 12km climb. This kind of activity can often be more tiring because we are there to support, supplies and push athlete to give it the best of herself, and I was rewarded because she win a beautiful podium V2 with a time very honorable.

comment : Come on, the goal is to try to improve my time from two years ago, and see if I can take an average of 12km / h on this hilly course especially difficult with the hill on last km. I'm starting fast, soon found myself alone, and there must be taken not to be caught up and keep a steady pace. It's hard, but the head keeps me  not stop and walk a few meters .... I keep running, the legs start to hurt: 14km is finally nothing (smile)! .... But it's long when you feel that the juice is running out .... The last 2 kms are coming up with a nice bump to the village: I see on the turning of a shoelace, a rider who comes back, and it gives me a little bit of power to revive and finally finish with a time that I would not dare to hope .... It feels good to finally see that I have still a little speed (smile)!

comment :  three days before the 72h of Antibes is a sprint that I agree with a duo where each runner do a round of 4.5 km route on a fairly hilly during the first 2 kilometers, and then a long false flat more or less amount. I take the second stint in second place with a beautiful race of my teammate and I just have to maintain this position, except I know that behind me there are 2-3 runners that are much faster than me ... .. So I start fast: 500m flat, a climb through a tunnel, stairs, climb another .... breath lacks a bit ..... a technical descent down the stairs, I love, and the latter false flat where I have to keep a steady pace .... I gave everything in the hilly part, and I try to keep this pace of restart .... the breath begins to be short .... It is 300m and then I get double, can not raise: never mind, the third place is already not so bad (smile)?

comment : Like last year here I am at this famous 72h at Fort Carré in Antibes. No pressure, just try to increase my mileage last year (353.260 km), which would already be very honorable. I'm almost ready, so here we go ..... The first few hours are going very well, I run in my pace and everything goes well. After eight hours one little fatigue is felt, and I opt for a quick stop of 30 minutes sleep ....

The wakeup goes well and here we go again, except that I slept 15 minutes longer current. I insist 1h, 2h, but still slow, then stopped again for 30 minutes .... I do this 2-3 times to finally realize that my sleep management does not go as well as last year and that my body needs more rest, which makes me lose my average over the first 24 hours.....

Early in the second 24 I feel good after a good shower and this time I must catch up the lost miles even though I'm still ranked in the top 5. During the second night I retry my management of sleep a small stops but it still does not work and I lost a lot of time: it is decidedly not my day!

Well, this is the last 24h: not possible to catch up lost miles, I feel that my body is really tired of my previous races, so I decided to go quiet and stay on my current ranking (7th), trotting quietly into recovery mode, while trying not to disappoint too many friends came to support me, and it was a great pleasure to have them near me.

Thank you to you,and thank you the organization for giving us this kind of trial, and by appointment in 2013 for a new adventure on a new site!

comment : After arriving the day before in the famous Tihany for Ultrabaton of 212 km, I feel great, it's hot (40 °), but it does not really affect me. Taken to hotel rooms, recovery bib, very nice dinner in a typical restaurant with drinks (wine, beer, soft drinks) and foods home with my two attendants .... In short, the top stress-free! In the early morning breakfast at 4.30 for departure at 6:00: Meeting on the line with the French racers and go. Knowing the course, I go quietly to 10-11 km / h, it's already been over 25 ° in temperature. I feel great,  the first semi goes 1:50, quiet, well stay on this pace because I did not feel forced .....No sooner had I thought that my legs are weak, helpless, and I begin to vomit everything I eat, that is not much .... Great moment of solitude, I do not understand what happens to me .... I walk a little wood, and leave again without any real force: I feel I hang out .....I come painfully to complete the first marathon (there are 5) in 5 hours interspersed with vomiting every time I eat, and I decide to stop a prolonged massage to understand what happens to me ... .10 minutes of sleep, a massage that gives me a feeling of slight legs and I'm leaving ....Nothing to do, after 3 km.... again: weak legs, unable to eat ... I really evolves dropper ....it's hard in the head, I understand that my body gives me alerts of fatigue on my 3 last months, but I do not want to stop .... A stunning take me: I fall on the course .... a cyclist myself up, I continue, and 5 minutes later .... I fall helpless ... person on the course, except that cyclists do not stop them, I get up painfully, teeth serve until the next refueling there where I'd rather give up: I feel dizzy after 83.800 km of run nothing in the belly!

Normal, the rise is longer with 10km and downhill slopes and slower as more technical.

Okay, I am still rank well and finally two-way race are interesting.

Next year will again changed direction and I advise you to note the race on your calendar, because not only the course is very nice, but the organization and post-race meal is always at the top with fine landscapes in the valley of the Var!

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                           distance : 19,500 Km                    result:   2h 24mn 48s

comment : So summary of the day: shortened course due to weather (too bad I would have ran into the snow, I love it, but we must also think about volunteers who wait in the cold), and it's a small trail of 19,500 km with 1141m D +.
I take the more or less rapid start to be easy in mono-traces (not having to double), then I reduce the speed (they all think I'm burnt ... lol),my heater start to be ok, and let's go to come back on runners in front of me (sorry guys).
The only downside was the calf cramps due to cold, and I could not really accelerate the descent ..... but hey, I lost maybe 3-4min, but that's okay I enjoyed myself on this journey full of stimulus that should not be idle!
A good journey to remember!

I'm still happy because I improved in swimming and cycling, and I noticed that I had changed little tray if I want to be comfortable in all climbs .....
The shape is there and I enjoyed as swimming with water at 22 °, as the bike race with the rise of the Col d'Eze, and took a lot of fun on this competition with a nice public during the foot race on the Promenade des Anglais.

Then, with the small and the big climbs down limit I set mode jogging to finish with an average of about 9 km that what I wanted without much fatigue ...

comment : Even though I'm at a week of an important appointment (French Championship of 24 hours), I have to go on a run race on Sunday because it is, for me, a last training done with pleasure to be with my friends riders on a nice ride, and a fun atmosphere.
So today it's a hilly race of 14km that I have pleasure of doing as "hare" for a friend, which allowed me to run my pace 24 hours without fatigue and complete relaxation .... .

comment : Preparation is important, and, sometimes, the D day is not here ....
Prepared for the past few months, the confidence is there for the championship of France 2012 of  24h at Vierzon. All the ingredients are there: no stress, massage
available and a perfect night the day before, in short, there is more than ....
The start is going very well, quiet, below my normal speed ... 2h race and 21km traveled that seems to me correct, I continue, but in my head I ponder: "It is not my km here, speeds .... Not remain quiet ... ".
For 6 hours I spend "be quiet" to "speeds you're bored", so I lose a little envy, moral .... But hey, I still even if I find my mileage ridiculous, because I keep quiet force password below 10km / h and it is not normal ....
I try to restart with a massage after 8h of race, it's going better, but it is the stomach that goes: hot tea, rest, and it's going better ....
I leave, the objectives are far behind but it is out of the question to let go, it's going better, I take a good look, I'm really at ease: phew, finally well!
Of the rocker 12h is passed and tile: large knee pain massage .... I'm leaving a tower and again pain ....
Conclusion: early synovial effusion is good ... Go stop is not worth aggravating thing ....
Disappointed, frustrated, disappointed, it really was not my day :-(

comment : despite the rain, cold advertised on this race of 13.5 km of Breil sur Roya, not to mention my stinker burst, I had to test my knee ....
No pain, that is good, and not worry to keep a certain pace on the race still very hilly with a time of 1h10mn49s which is very correct after stopped 3 weeks and 38 ° fever ... lol!
Well, we'll see the marathon next week, but not more than 3:50 ....;-)

the race on Google Earth        my race on Garmin connect

                           distance : 42,195 Km                    result:   4h 27mn 47s

comment : Well, I thought my knee was going to hold, I made a small output 15km the day without pain but today, after 07 km of racing I had the right to full, I can walk on (although course of the leg where the knee is fragile), twist my foot, but especially my knee .... Fortunately, Cath and another rider were there, otherwise I fall down like a pancake!
I keep hoping that it takes, but after 3 km the pain was too intense I let my companion and stopped to massage me a bit ....
Recovery trotted quietly, I get a friend and gives him a pace, while clenching my teeth, to finish in 4 hours or less, but 10km later the pain is more intense: I stop again to massage my knee begins to swell visibly.
I still have less than 20 km to run, I'll go quiet just to finish, while say hello the friends on the side of the road.
I am not tired at all but impossible to hold a steady pace without the knee reacts .... I end this year 2012 with this marathon and now it is almost 2 months of rest, and during this period I will devote myself entirely to the swimming pool and sea.
Appointment on 1 January 2013 on the waterfront of the French Riviera, for the classic "Deslagging Eve."

Have a good end of year!

comment : recovery sneakers today for a small "cross" of 11km which in fact has just the name "cross", because a good half of the race was on asphalt or bike path, but a path still very fun between Sophia Antipolis and ... Valbonne.
I could test if my knee was better and I'm very satisfied because no pain, but for speed I got a little lost during the month and a half off.
Okay, it's not really my priority, and very happy with this output: it feels good and urge that I found my long trips!
