1 month ago, I took part to one of the most famous cross country skiing race in Europe: "La Transjurassienne"
It was my first race ever, and a fantastic experience. I finished 811th and there was 3200 competitors.
3 weeks after I left Nice for the french Pyrénées for an altitude training camp In Font Romeu (1850m).
The daily programm was as follow:
. 5.30: wake up
. 6 to 8: Static apnea training + swimming
. 8 to 9: Breakfast
. 9 to 12: Cross country skying or hiking
. 12 to 1: Lunch
. 1 to 3: Nap
. 3 to 5: Weight lifting
. 5 to 7: Dynamic apnea + swimming
. 7 to 8: Dinner
(optionnal): 8.30 to 9.30: Indoor soccer
This training camp was organised by Fred SESSA, member of the french team and former world record holder in dynamic apnea (255m).
The first idea of this camp is to train in altitude in order to increase the amount of red cells. The second idea is to dedicate completly to an intense training routine without any other activity for 10 days (nobody can do this in the everyday life...).
It was a unique experience and I am looking forward to see the result in a couple of weeks in the depth.
I will you keep you in touch after the my first deep dives!
