  1. RUN
    great 29.94 km 01:51 05:57 pace

    Nice little boxing day run on mostly hard packed snow and some icy trails. Massive chinook arc in the sky over the Rockies—gorgeous. Weather crisp. Perfect.

  2. swim
    good PT Coaching 3800 m 01:20 33:52 pace

    Swam under the watchful eye of Noa Deutsch, my coach. She gave me great pointers (some new, some reminders). I have a long way to go to improve my swimming. Anyway, it was a good set.

      No. No sprints. I did find it really easy to breathe after doing the 7s. 4 felt like nothing. Next time, I'll try to do a sprint after.

    I managed to get third overall at Mt. Stewart 10 mile XC race, which is good. I'll do a blog post about this race, because there are a few good stories:

      great work, friend. it must be so nice to have races to attend during winter. in comparison, it feels like you've jumped time and are in the middle of spring or summer. it must be such a different feeling.

      Yeah! I heard it is -50 there today. What is with that?! Crazy. I actually snowed in Victoria today, but I'm feeling still very lucky to be here.

    good Cedar Hill run with PT crew 13.5 km 01:07 07:59 pace

      The last time I did 2 mi of swimming, it was in open water, we got stung by jellyfish, and it took me the better part of 2 hours to complete... and I slept like a baby afterwards. Nice job!

      Yeah. There were some top runners there. I mean, the guy who won the Vancouver marathon and is a world class mountain runner placed 4th. Seriously, the competition out here is insane.
