I've been keeping myself busy...so many things so little time :)
Now that boat wrapping is done I can concentrate on getting some projects done...and more training in :) Got part of my first project done today, fixing the shed. It's only been a year since a big wind storm picked up my shed and puffed it out like jiffy pop. Works in progress include getting the garage and laundry room clean, finally finish fixing up buddy bike...(which is moving at an incredible pace now just need one more part) and general fix ups around the house (that crazy toilet is still leaking)
I got my mountain bike back in working condition thanks to Blaze at Source for Sports in BR. It actually is a sweet bike to ride when it is in good shape. I won it from Tim Hortons back in 1998. With a tail wind I had it going 34kph yeaterday on the lake road, you should've heard those knobby tires humming :) It should be a great way to stay in shape over the winter.
Swimming is going great...coach Jen has us swimming better than ever before. Those hard days of waking up @ 4:45am to get there for 5:30 are well worth it. I think coming into the pool with a good base from the excessive open water swimming all summer made a huge difference.
I've got my pace down to 1:35/100m we'll see what that translates into in the open water.
Today was crazy at the pool though. Way too many ppl. It was hard to do any of the sets without running into someone. It was almost like being at a race with all the arms and feet..only thing is I have never almost ran into someone head on in a race before.
Something that makes me laugh...I have met alot of ppl lately of all different abilities. I find people talking at the pool or at races are always making comments to me like "ohh man I got to bed late last night so I am struggling" or "I drank alot of wine last night I can hardly breathe" o .. I just think back to all the days that I have made excuses for my poor performance and realize now that it is just ability and conditioning. People have to make a start somewhere and as long as you're putting a good effort in there should be no excuses. It's what you put into it.
