Elien Janssen  Belgium triathlete πŸ‡§πŸ‡ͺ Ironman πŸŠπŸš΄πŸƒ - 10:10:51 ✈ Road to ... (?) 2017! πŸ‹ 🍍Vegan - for everything πŸ’• . πŸ’ @simonbaerts

Changed plans this morning.. πŸ™ƒ moved my 33K run to Tuesday, felt a little tired after yesterday's brick training and don't want to take the risk to overtrain right now. So, kind of a rest day today, except from some stability and power exercises. πŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈ And of course a looong walk with my dog.. 🐢 somehow, my rest days are never really rest days.. πŸ™„

Tough, but SO much fun, brick training today! 😍 20K bike - 3K run - 20K bike - 3K run - 20K bike - 3K run - 20K bike, with speed work in between. Something totally new for me, but it felt awesome! Now, legs in the air and recovering.. πŸ™ƒ

Still a few days of easy going, but shoulder seems to be fine! πŸ€— The force isn't totally back yet and it is still a bit sensitive, but can start moving again. Hope to be fully back this weekend! πŸ€ (Or at least next week! πŸ™„)

β€œNo matter how close we are to another person, few human relationships are as free from strife, disagreement, and frustration as is the relationship you have with a good dog. Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of itself. I also suspect that we cherish dogs because their unblemished souls make us wish - consciously or unconsciously - that we were as innocent as they are, and make us yearn for a place where innocence is universal and where the meanness, the betrayals, and the cruelties of this world are unknown.” ❀️ #doglove

πŸ’‘ Tip of the day: don't leave your bed at night and if you do, do NOT take any stairs before fully awake! πŸ™„ I tried it last night and slipped.. result: painful shoulder. Will visit the doc this evening, hoping that it isn't to bad.. πŸ˜•

Bed is calling for a beauty sleep.. πŸ‘ΈπŸ½ Long, exhausted day! Woke up at 4.30am for work and came back home at 4pm.. Really tired after a short night so needed to push myself on training. πŸ™Š Started with an hour on the bike, included some speed in the end πŸš΄β€β™€οΈ followed by a 10K run. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Such a great feeling afterwards! πŸ€

Today I want to share something about myself with you guys, something about my choices in life. I've been an animal lover since I was a kid, at home we always had animals. We were taught to be kind with them. I couldn't imagine to see my rabbit as food. But on the other hand, in the evening we had the same animal on our plate, the only difference was that we didn't get to know this one. And.. We didn't think about the living being behind that piece of dead flesh. When I got older my way of thinking about eating meat and fish changed a lot.. The internet got a huge influence in that. Seeing pictures, videos,.. of the way those beautiful living beings are mistreated and tortured for our moment of "pleasure" made me sick. I couldn't be part of that anymore. At age of 16, I became a vegetarian. Thought that my way of living changed everything for those animals, but in fact I wasn't educated enough at all. In the next years I learned the truth about the production of animal byproducts.. And I understood that the process behind that was maybe even worse. 4y ago I decided to go vegan. Some of the people I know didn't understand my choice, told me that it didn't make a difference for those animals. But I know it does, not only for the animals but also for myself. I feel a lot more healthy, I couldn't live with myself anymore, knowing I was part of this enormous torture against other living beings. And I know I'm not alone, I'm not the only one who made this choice, there are so many others with me, and a lot more to come. By the internet, people get educated, they learn about the truth behind animal products, and for many, that is what brings them to a more kind way of living. It's not only important for fighting the cruelty towards animals, but also taking care of our health and our planet. By spreading my way of living I hope to inspire others to choose a more kind way of living, to think about the products they eat and were they come from. I want to show that a vegan lifestyle is possibly for everyone, even on a high sport level. And I hope that one day the world will look at what we've done to animals on the same way we look at slavery right know.. ❀️

Goodmorning friday! 🌀 After a way to long morning in bed (guess I still need extra hours of sleep since Ironman Klagenfurt.. πŸ™„) it was time for my first serious training. I was a little nervous before because I had no idea how my body would react after just 10 days of active rest.. Had a long run on the planning with 3 x 5000m tempo. Oh my, it was really tough! πŸ™Š Died a few times in between, but managed to do every 5K in the time I needed to do. Thanks to my hubby @simonbaerts who accompanied me during the last 2 pace blocks. πŸ’• So proud of myself! Taking some rest this afternoon, look out carefully how my body react after this one but sooo ready to beat those hard work sessions again! πŸ€ Enjoy your Friday everyone, weekend is almost there! ...Oh wait.. No, I have to work the whole weekend.. 🀣

Today will be a non-training day for me cause of a long day at work. Hopefully I will be able to do an evening swim tomorrow. But mostly looking forward to my day off on Friday, than I will do my first hard training session to see how my body reacts after IM Klagenfurt.. 🀞❀️
