Woot Woot!  Another big fat check mark! 8000 m swim done!  First time I have ever swam 8 kms in a POOL!  A 25m pool no less!  Yowch! At least it was the Red Deer Rec Centre pool – way less chlorine than Sylvan Lake Pool.  Still, my nose is running like a broken faucet…

Another awesome recovery week day – just a swim to do! Spent the morning at the gym working with my bookkeeper and payroll etc, then off to the pool! warm up for a few hundred metres, and then 20x50m Mod Hard, plus a continuous 500m swim, and a cool down set to cap it off….

Another wonderful day in Recovery Week! I must say, it was a great day for a few reasons, but let me talk about something really cool.  When we booked our flights a few months back, we talked about options and had to go with cheap as possible.  that meant no reserved seats (costs extra) and…

I really enjoyed my day off from training Monday – been a while since I had one of those!!! I was really stoked about how great I felt after the big 60km run on Sunday!  Had a pretty painful but effective Graston Technique treatment to open up the fascia in my hip flexors and abdomen…

Well…….when I woke to the sight of snow everywhere and winds at 23kms per hour from the North East….I honestly wanted to crawl back in to bed!  that’s the beautiful thing about a goal though – it reminds you of what needs to be done, and sleeping in has nothing to do with it.  I…

Really enjoyed a morning at home with my little boy Kaden.  He’s 18 months old today, and SO much fun!  Then after a Rotary Meeting and a ton of paperwork and getting all the of the Ultraman World Championship Jersey and logo design stuff done and finalized, I got on the spin bike at the…

Well, last week the Zombie Run threw a hand grenade at my training!  I kind of knew that would happen…..  Still, I managed 3 good runs, a bike and a bit of a swim, and the 16 to 18 hour days of building obstacles for the Zombie Run, carrying heavy lumber and equipment, plus all…

I was FLOORED today at Rotary club –everyone threw individual donations into a bucket and handed it to me at the end of the meeting.  I never saw it coming, and it was about $2000 by the time the dust settled.  With the other companies that have come on board, we are over half way…

Amazing fall run!  Temperature of +2 up to +6 – awesome!  After about 25kms foot and hip flexors a bit sore, but nothing like last week.  Much better! Foot was indeed pretty sore after, but it seems to be better and better each week.  Then I cooked a huge turkey dinner for family and was…
