Humble by the distance. I use gmap pedometer and measure my route. It comes to 240 km (150 miles). Holy freak. This will be a long long trip. I asked for an adventure and I got one. This ain’t a walk in the park. This morning, I remembered the time I went to PEI by myself, rent a bike and rode for three days. It was an awesome experience. There was no cars, no traffic, no street noise. Just...

An epiphany 3 am in the morning. I woke up at 3 am and all of sudden I have a mixture of thoughts that just fits together. I am not very good at putting my thoughts into words. So if what I am about to say doesn’t make a lot of sense, I forgive about this. I have been questioning about me and my peers about our career. It seems that in my generation this is the ultimate important goal in...

Going Long On Sat, I re-read Going Long again. Boy did I missed a lot of things. I am now at the end of Base 3. This week is my recovery week. Here is a few things that I need to re-adjust to my training: – do more yoga, Joe and Gordo suggest at least one hour per week (or 3 times 20 min)– focus on going long and easy on the bike (my interpretation, forget about speed, focus on...

Chickened out No long ride for me today. It is freezing outside. I have all my gears ready. Got my booties, my wool socks, my leg warmers. Stepped out. Nuts. I can feel the wind cutting through the clothing. I stood for a while. Thinking about it. It’s too cold. I needed some long johns (which I don’t have). My boys gonna be chilling for a while if i get on the road. It is -4*C (24...

Feeling like a kid again. I am surprise how a canker sore at the root of your tongue has effected my training. Yesterday I was eating some white chicken meat. Every time I swallow, I scream silently in pain. Ouch. B/c of the canker sore, I didn’t ate a lot in the past few days. Since Wednesday, I have lost 2-3 lbs. It might be a good news for some. I want to lose weight too. But without...

A long run… Before I talked about the run, I want to show you guys my route: Compare to Family Circus….does it look familiar?? During the run, that’s all I can think about. Once in a while, Family Circus has a clip where the kid walks in every direction instead of taking the direct route home. I felt exactly like that last night. I had to think of every detour before I head home...

A mix of East and West. I have canker sores. There is one right behind my tongue. This makes swallowing not enjoyable. Then there is two in my lower lip. Muffles my speech. Makes it harder to work when right now I am doing temporary front desk. “aello..this is liff.. ow may I help you…” I did a little look up on canker sores (click here). At the question “How do I prevent...

Getting Back into Business I didn’t feel like training for the past few days. With all the junk food in the house from April 1st, it is too tempting. I ate some pringles last night. This morning, I felt sluggish and unmotivated. I serioulsy believe that pigging out like that does wonder to your mind and not just your body. Also make one wonder how come kids these days are so unmotivated. I...
