March 19

March 19th, 2007

It was a busy weekend. I didn’t even have time to post a new journal entry!
Saturday was tough to get motivated, but once I got out in the pouring rain, I was ready to go! I headed over the Burrard bridge into Kits. I went straight through Kits to Point Grey and then decided to head up the hill to UBC. I followed 4th around until I hit Westbrook and then cut back through campus on University. By the time I made it home, I had skated about 30 km or so. But it was a solid 30 km of hills, rain, bumpy and slippery terrain. An overall great training run…and I was only out for about an hour and a half!


Yesterday I had an appointment with a Nurtionist/personal trainer. I know I’m a fairly healthy guy, but Judy really helped steer me towards a more sustainable diet. Nutrition is something that’s out of my element, so I have a lot of learning, but I’m already looking forward to some of the changes. And they seem so simple to make, too!


This week I should finalize a few big aspects of my journey. A few big sponsorships should fall into place which will take a lot of stress off my shoulders. Now I’ll be able to focus on training and the smaller sponsors. My last big hurdle will be finding a driver for the Prairies. My Dad is driving for about 2/3 of the trip. But he can’t commit the entire 5 months. So he’d prefer to do the beginning and the end. If anyone is interested in driving for a little bit through Ontario and the Prairies, let me know!
