Yeah, just watched "Facing Ali" very good, highly recommended as far as documentaries go.
Just got home from getting lost in the wilderness trails. I'm sure your saying didn't you have Liz with you? no, she wasn't and sure enough we went in many circles. Almost camped out for the night, On the plus side new addition didn't ditch her car this week. Legs and lungs felt good, so good in fact I think all i needed was that shut down on Saturday and a easy day yesterday.
Started to lay out some more ground rules for the man rides, and what kinds of things count or are deducted.
- Point to point with a pickup at the end is soft and worth very little man points
- solo is worth more man points than a group, a group of 3 or more is totally unacceptable.
- Losing toes and fingers to frostbite is not necessary,
Maybe I'm getting a bit of that Olympic spirit, actually i don't think i have ever watched with this much enthusiasm. Not to get all corny but I am truly impressed and proud of the Canadian athletes and how well they are performing. And holding their heads super high whenever they finish, regardless of their placing.
also got out for walk with nutbar, and a spin in on the rollers while watching the 15 km freestyle ski and listening to Jacks colorful commentary.
I plan on getting at least on man-ride in this week, I don't think it will be the gold medal winner but it will be a good one.
sending my best wishes and giver hell's out to Vancouver and Whistler.
