Snowboarding to train for tri? Or tri to train for snowboarding?Going to do a quick blog before heading to bed. Someone once said that it is not what you do, but the people that you do with that’s important. I am never a people person. I get very irritated by people that are cheap, or whiny or picky. If there is one thing I learn ever since being Christian is to accept others as who they...

And the numbers please…and some random thoughts I manage to grab this off the crosstrainer program. If there is one thing lacking about this program, it is the lack of graphs or summary. It feels like a blackhole. You put in the data but it is not user friendly to grab them out. If you look at the two bolded numbers, you will see that as of this week I have trained 15 hours. Woohoo. This is...

A run under the moonlight. Thanks for the encouragement and tips from the previous posts guys. Very appreciated. I am going to keep training by myself. By spring/summer I will look for someone to train with. Last night, I ran 17 km in 2 hr 15 min. This translates to 12 min/mile. Woah..slow.. :). I kept my HR at 141. I look over my past record and if I run with 150 HR, my pace will be 10 min/mile...

Rant post.. This was supposed to be a rant post. But after writing paragraphs and paragraphs about my personal struggles, I’ve decided to erase them. Things happen and things happen. All I can say is that i am looking for my long run tonight. It will be a great stress reliever. I was reading from Sheila’s post about training 14 hour ain’t hard. It reminded me back last summer...

…Number Crunching… There is one thing I dislike living up here in the north..well other than being chase by polar bears in winter and chase by beavers in the summer is the fact that most of the stuff I buy from the internet is ship from the states. When it crosses the border, I have to pay 5 dollar customs PLUS tax. I thought there was free trade. Lastly, some of the good deals like...

Choices choices…group training or stick with solo?? Hey all, I have a dilenma. Being that I am a newbie into the sports, I figure it would be a great idea to go train with a group and gain experience. The problem is the lack of time. I have contacted a tri club called Blast. They are located about 40 min away from where I live. Their training schedule varies. If I train with them, it will...

The packages are here…. I am in Clif Bar Heaven! Note: No Clif Bar and Clif Bar products are harmed, abused or damaged (except for the one that I err Hommer ate). They ain’t all for me. I orderd five boxes of Chocoate Chips and a big shot Mocha bottle. The rest belongs to my friends. Now I am asking myself…diet?..oh right the Clif Bar diet. 🙂 On another news, there is a14th...

A quick week review. Today is an interesting day. I do not enjoy cleaning or doing any house chores. This morning though, I woke up and I spent the first 15 minutes cleaning up my room. For me, once I start doing it, it is not hard. Just starting is the hard part. It would be nice to find that switch in my head and shut off the brain once in a while and just do. I want to write a few articles...

How come the Kenyans run so fast??I just finish a documentary to explain how come the Kenyans run so fast? There were a lot of ideas that tried to explain how come the Kenyans run so fast. Some suspect of their diet. Some suspect of the high altitude they live in (2,000 m above sea level). The scientists disproved those theories. They did a comparison to Swedish runners. What they found that...

Where in the world is my gall bladder?? Oh what a day yesterday was. My appointment was at 2:30 pm. First I waited outside for an hour. Then they brought me to a waiting room where we have to change into a gown and wait for another hour. By the time I was done, it was 5:30 pm. 10 hours of no eating. Oh the humanity. I finished reading the Paleo Diet (review is on its way) during the wait time and...
