Skiing - Skate 1:31:00 [1] 19.66 km (4:38 / km)

Nice ski up at Larch Hills just before it got dark. Ran out of groomed trail unfortunately though.

Thursday Jan 19 #

(rest day)

Might have a cold coming on.

Wednesday Jan 18 #

Running 45:00 [1] 7.1 km (9.5 kph)

Easy evening run, need to do this sort of thing far more often. Really nice to get out, and the weather was very warm and mild.

Tuesday Jan 17 #

Badminton 1:40:00 [1]

Only 22 people there today, so no waiting. Got a decent workout in, but still need to get real running in. Plan is to do that tomorrow evening.

Just the calculus assignment and a tad bit of the physics lab left that is due this week. Tons due next week, plus the start of midterms already.

Streching/Rolling 18:00 [0]

Monday Jan 16 #

Running warm up/down 15:00 [1]

Strength 1:00:00 [1]

Finished lab early again so made it to strength for 2 weeks in a row! Pretty sure that's a record for this year!

Streching/Rolling 15:00 [0]

After strength.


Training seems to be going okay so far, but I'm having difficulty getting some of the hours in espescially on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when I start school early and don't get off until it is dark out. When I get home I need to make sure I get something (either a run or homework) done in the hour that is free before supper.

Need to start doing more running.

Streching/Rolling 10:00 [0]

Back tightened up after doing homework, so rolled it out.

Sunday Jan 15 #

Running warm up/down 15:00 [1]

Games (soccer) 50:00 [2]

We lost again, 8-4, but I think I actually had a positive goal differential as well as 2 assists. Need to get more actual running in this coming week.


Had about a 45 minute conversation with Marg and Brian Ellis, the new president of OABC, this afternoon.

We had a great conversation on how to grow the sport into new communities in BC, while still helping existing clubs (namely Kamloops) to survive and hopefully grow.

We started off by talking about how we managed to be successful in Salmon Arm - mostly the ski team, the wild soles trail running, and a tad of promotion.

It then went into plans for this coming summer, and how we could grow the sport around BC. It sounds like I might get a summer job traveling to various BC communities (likely Revelstoke, Vernon, Kelowna) with a couple of existing orienteers to work. I'd be making maps, setting up events, with the goal of getting a foundation for future clubs in each city. The idea is to hopefully get the former/inactive orienteers to come out and help organize events for excited new beginners.

This would likely take place through May/June, working with schools as well. Possibly some sort of follow up thing in August if I do not end up picking pinecones this year. Sometime in here I believe I am also making 2-3 decent sized forest orienteering maps around Salmon Arm/Sorrento.

Based on my Attackpoint profile, I have been consistently getting a few hits, so somebody is reading my training log now (notice that my training comments are longer than they used to be?) so any thoughts or ideas welcome!
