Where oh where do I find time to train? Time hunting. I am sure this is the number one question and objection ppl ask when they think of endurance racing. Couple of nights ago I sat down and thought about the things I must do and where I can find time to train. I hunt very hard. Flipped over every rock and searched every crack. Here is what I have come up with:Orange is my Chruch related...

Question: Can you qualify for Boston Marathon with an Ironman?? For me to qualify for Boston, I have to run under 3hrs 10min. Let say for my Ironman, I run a sub 3 hr. Now can I use my Ironman race result to qualify for Boston? So if I train really hard for Ironman, I can qualify for Boston as well. Two birds with one stone :). I love endurance sports. A question to ponder while I sit around...

The sniffle, tooth situation Today I woke up with a sniffle. My throat has been actting up last night. I knew I am coming down with something My body screams to go for a run. I know I should stay indoor and recoup. Now the weather is taunting me with sunshine and bright blue sky. We will see who wins. Last night I went for a 15 km stroll. I practiced with improving my cadence. I run with a 74...

Remembrance Day Today is Remembrance Day. In Canada, 600,000 went to fought in the Great War (World War I). Now there is only five alive. When I talk among my peers, these events seemed like ancient history. No one talk about it or give much thought about it. I thank God for giving me the interest to read military science. I use to be a geek back then (oh wait, still is now). In highschool, I...

Less Running and More Working So here I thought I will have more time in November since I don’t have a structure training, how wrong I am. At work, we are implementing a database for our inventory control. Right now we are using several big spreadsheet to do the work. As you can imagine, it is very frustrating (especially for those that are illerate). My boss had hired a consultant to...

Running in the dark. I went out for a jog last night. I haven’t done that for a while now. I figure I must get use to it. There is something calming in the night. Ordinary there is a large amount of traffic on my regular route. Last night, it seemed different. Maybe it is the darkness around me. I spent the last portion of the run working on my cadence. I run 160 steps per minute. Most...

What is the best cure for having a tooth remove? Just like everything in life, you go for a jog. I haven’t gone one for a while. I went for a run on Sat morning before heading to the dentist. I don’t even consider it as a run. It’s more like a waddling my butt across the neighbourhood. Mentally I wasn’t focus on running. I was rushing to get it done. Fifteen minutes later...

I. One Less Tooth Went to the dentist to yank out a tooth. Trust me, it was better out than in. Ever since my bike accident in Sept, this tooth has been aching. It ached so bad that I could not bite properly. It is one of the back tooth on the left side. I have to eat everything on the right side. The dentist told me the tooth has splitted into three bits. On the way home, I felt weak and...
