And Now for Something Totally Different!

And Now for Something Totally Different!

Monday & Tuesday of this week were a bit different than typical this week. My wife has been working hard in grad school, and finished up the term on Saturday. I decided to take a few days off from work to spend with her before she gets going again, so Monday and Tuesday of this week were busy! We decided on two day trips. Monday, we took a drive up to the Bruce Peninsula to do some hiking. Of course,…

My Blade Carbon Wheels are arriving next week! Very excited about this one. My Blade Carbon Wheels are going to be here next week, which means I’ll be riding outside again in no time.

That kind of thing. I’ve been trying…

In my non-triathlon life, one of my dogs has decided she likes peeing inside, despite being housebroken for years. She’s 4. This is new. And only happens in the middle of the night. To make a long story short, my wife and I have found out she doesn’t pee in our bedroom. Normally we sleep with the door…

Sorry, Neighbours.

Sorry, Neighbours.

I was up a bit earlier than usual today to spend some time on the treadmill. The next few days are pretty busy in my personal life, so needing to carve out some time to spend running is necessary. That happens. I’d forgotten how difficult it is to run on sleeping muscles though. Strangely, you wouldn’t know it from looking at my pace and hr graphs from today compared to two days ago (I did basically the same workout –…
