April 9

April 9th, 2007

Looks like I missed a couple of days in my journal. Sorry about that… it’s been a busy Easter weekend.


The whale watching was fun. Unfortunately there were no whales to be seen, but there was a lot of other wildlife out and about. We saw hundreds of sea lions, seals, porpoises and bald eagles. The nice thing about the tour is that since we didn’t see any whales, we can go back any time for free until we do see them! We’ll try again next summer.


Yesterday I did some light training. I made sure I covered a lot of distance, but I wanted to try blading at the pace I intend to skate at over the next 5 months. I think some people are forgetting that I’m not racing across the country. I will be pacing myself so I don’t over-exert and risk injury. But even at a casual pace, I still covered around 15-20 km per hour. It all depends on the terrain and the weather.


Crystal and I will be spending all day cooking our Easter dinner for tonight. We’re having some friends over and plan to have a slow-cooked leg of lamb. Should be fun! Does anyone else think long weekends like this should be mandatory at least twice a month?! It’s nice to be able to sleep in until 7:30. I never thought I’d consider 7:30 to be sleeping in.
