GO Canada GO

The Olympics are soon over and I must say they went fast! For two weeks my tv was on the same channel. I was very proud the way Canada competed in the games and I am filled with pride. Congrats to all the athletes. Now as many people know I love hockey very much and love to talk about it. I just have a few points, first one is I am not so sure starting Loungo will be a good idea we hasn't really been tested much threw out the tournament (other then the last 3 minutes in the Slovakia game) I would rather see Brodeur in the net. He is the guy who won the gold in 2002 and he also played a great game against the Swiss. I know alot of people looked at he USA game and shake there heads and yes he was off his game but after being a devil fan and Brodeur fan for the last 13 years I can tell you one thing Brodeur doesn't screw up twice. As for the rest of the team they are playing great just need to see Crosby step up tonight!

Febuary is almost done?

So with Feb almost being over I soon get ready to pack my bags and head down south. Training post A-fib as been the same I haven't held anything back I have been swimming with a pretty high intensity and running big miles. Even with the set backs I have had this year I am going into 2010 best prepared then any other year. I have some pretty big goals in my mind and I am well on my way to them.

Arizona is going to be a big stepping stone in terms of getting my warm weather base training under way. I have started to bike indoors with some consistency. I just tried out my new Specialized Tarmac and it is awesome. I feel fast and Strong on it, thanks to GEARS for the bike and the bike fit! I want to go into Arizona injury free and with high fitness. I will be working on what races I want to do in the 2010 season so hope to have a pretty good idea by Friday.

Wolf pack

I had a little speech before starting one of the funnest days EVER!!!! Here is how it went.....
I tend to think of myself as a one man wolf pack. But when I met Andrew and Dave earlier last year, I knew they were one of my own. And my wolf pack, it grew by 2. So there were 3 of us in the wolf pack. I was alone first in the pack and then Dave joined in later. And 6 months ago, when Dave introduced me to you Andrew I thought, wait a second, could it be. And now I know for sure that I just added two guys to my wolf pack. 3 of us (Dragon, Night Hawk and Wolf) flying around Toronto. So tonight, I make a toast.

Now here is the video of our fun day on February 6, 2010

feels good to be back

After my little deal with a-fib I have got back into training. Yesterday I did a nice and long easy run, today I am going to swim with my swim team for the first time since last Tuesday. I have been doing light swim workouts on my own or with David. I am right now looking into health insurance for when i go down to Arizona March 10th- 23rd this year. That's all I have been doing.
