what a busy day!

Doesn't it bother you to have to cut a workout short because you have to work!  Huh!  What the heck is that all about!
Yesterday was a busy day all around, I had about 25 things on the list and all had to be complete.  It was successful though, with the exception of having to cut 500m off of a swim practice!  Apparently I must resort my priorities!
My swim yesterday was an 'anerobic' practice which is a great higher intensity workout.  A no rest go and kind of day where you continue to test your limits.  I loved every minute of it!  I am finding that I now putting a little more focus on form and technique in the pool.  Without getting the basics that I am using now into proper form, I don't think that hiring a coach is going to make a lot of difference.  So as I do my tougher practices, I focus on form as I begin to get towards the end when I may have slipped a bit in the past.  Overall I would give myself a 6.5 out of 10 for my effort yesterday, that is for keeping form!  Not finishing because I did not allow proper schedule time gives me a -5, so I have some work to do!
Part of my time crunch yesterday was to help serve my number one passion which is skiing!  Yep!(look at how happy it makes me!)  I said it, tritahlon is not my main game, it is the awesome method that i use to make sure that I am the best that I can be for skiing!  Yesterday evening was the AGM for the Canadian Ski INstructors Alliance ONtario group.  I needed to be at this meeting in order to both MC the event as well as put my name on the ballot of  my second term as a director.  Being a director allows me to share my passion for the sport with others and to help influence future skiers from taking the time to become a ski teaching professional.  Needless to say I was not going to miss the evening.  Overall it was a great succesful night, I am now(once again) a director for the next 2 years and I did not trip getting onto the stage to lead the evenings events!  Wahoo!
I hope that you are set for an awesome weekend!  For all the US peoples, have a great long weekend!


  1. Rather than focus on being 500m down on your target, I think you are right to focus on having kept good form. The longer the swim the more difficult it seems.

    It does sound like you had a fab evening sharing your major ski passion, and congratulations on being re-elected!

    Have a great weekend :)

  2. Congrats!! And yes - I feel guilty when i miss .... but sometimes not THAT guilty :)

  3. Congrats on another 2 year term Mr. Director! Obviously, you are well loved. I had to cut a few morning swims down by about 5oo and it bugged me a bit but in the whole scheme of things/the big picture, not an issue at all. You have a nice w/e too. I'm looking forward to having a long weekend here. Much needed day off Monday.
