Good Bloggers

Today I read some really good blogs. Some people put ons of effort into these blogs. I cant or just dont want to afford the time to spend on writing a huge blog. But I go have lots of respect for those that do, there creativity amazes me. I got everything really organized today because this weekend is going to be a busy one. I am having my real birthday party this weekend. Its going to be an iron drinking weekend. I cant wait.

The swim today was nice a lot nicer then last weeks swim. The water was cool and made for an enjoyable swim. The only issue I ran into was having trouble breathing because I had had some greasy food earlier that after noon. My body has become quite picky with the swimming routine, and even tough I think I can beat it or change it... I cant.

Post Birthday

Well another year has past. For some reason this was the first year were the birthday really didn't mean much. 22 is not really a significant age like 16 or 18 its just another year. I spent the day doing normal things went for breakfast went for a run and went to work. On Saturday I worked a show for little kids it was called little bear. To little kids everything is amazing. They get an ice cream and they are thrilled!! Its amazing, I wonder where that goes when you age??. Lately I have even lost track of the days, not that it really matters what day it is anyways because either way you just gotta keep moving forward and stay positive. Otherwise you will get stuck in a rut.

I don't even know where the year has gone I cant believe its been a year already since I have started this. Man the time really starts to fly. But I guess life is like that.

Pre birthday

Haha its actually my birthday now but I felt like pretending I wrote this prior to my actual birthday. It was a fast day today. It seemed as though right after I got up I was at work. It was pantages so it wasnt that bad. That is probabilay the easiest job I have ever had. I enjoy going to that job. I made my way to the gym after my shift it, which I find is always interesting. Those body builders always amaze me they do one set and then stand and talk for like 10 minutes. I find it hilarious, I don't know I enjoy sweating like crazy and gettin tired its fun. I did something different tonight and went to a techno show. It was fun I like jammin to that its very free spirtied its like a bunch of new age hippies. HAHA

Tred Sweats

Lately I have really been enjoying running. I think its because of the full sleeps I have been able to get. My body is able to truly recover. I chose to do my workout today on a tredmill. Here in Manitoba hills are few and far between. Although I do not like running on a tredmill it can provide an incline.

Todays treadmill run was very enjoyable. It started with an interval session and then moved to a tempo run. By the end of it was was drenched in sweat. It felt like I was covered in endorphins. I haven't had a run like that in a while. It felt really good to just sweat it all out.

Learning To Age

Today was rather uneventful. I brought my dog to my girlfriends for the night and that dog loves to cuddle and shes like a furnace. So it was nice to wake up warm in the morning. The rest of the day was not really all that eventful, coffee, took computer in for a fix, then work out and then to class.

The class I am taking now is called "physical growth and aging". So far I have found it to be fairly negitive. You get old everything degenerates and you die. Its just the way it is you have to accept it. We talk a lot about health issues and disease. Today was about motivating people to exercise. For me its a non issue but for others it is unusual to exercise in a day.

This spawned a thought about choices. Many things in life are enjoyable most are not healthy, sweet food, burgers, gettin drunk every now and then, some people enjoy smoking. You make all your own choices in life. If you choose to smoke dont be surprised if you get a lung infection. I chose to do triathlon. There are lots of benifits to triathlon, but if training is not done properly you can cause serious damage as well.

Anyways what I am getting at is there is a huge fear around body image health disease aging blah blah blah. When really just look at your choices. If you make good ones and something happens then o well it happned now fix it. If you made a bad choice and something happens well that was your choice. So from now on I choose to have a positive presence around people, and I am gonna worry less about the future, cause there is nothing I can do to change it, I can only make the right choices in the moment.

Terrific Tuesday

Today was terrific! Mcdonalds has free coffee for this whole week. Since I love coffee in the first place its a bonus that its free. After that I totally cleaned out my room which has been piling up with clothes, training notes, and old school work. It felt really good to de clutter.

From there I headed out on my cycle for the day. In Winnipeg at this time it is usually very cold. But this year we have had amazing weather. Today I rode in normal fall gear and was more then comfortably warm. Again the time seemed to go but quickly, I guess thats what its suppose to feel like when your fit.

When all this was done I still had time to make it to the dog park.

Cant beat the heat

Today was productive compared to the last few day. I was up early and was able to meet my mom for some coffee. We chatted it was good we haven't done that in a while. Then I helped Kelcie's mom moves some stuff because there grandmas is switching houses. Once that was done I finally figured out the stereo problem in my car that has been bugging me for the last few days. Me and Layla went for a drive and a walk after that.

Then there was the swim. On Mondays I swim with a club. The practices are help at the old pm am games pool. Its a very nice pool. The training tank is usually nice and cold, one time it was so cold my hands started to get numb. Today the water was not cold, it was not even some what cold, it was warm. I guess since the last couple of swims I have had have been strong and enjoyable. Today was a bit of a push, I felt like a rubber noodle in the water. It felt good to be done today, there was no euphoric connection with the water today.

Last night was yet another late night, I think I got to be around 4. It was worth it though playin cards with the guys. I had to make a run to grab some milk cause on lsd days I do like to eat a it before I run. That food really ended up paying off because I had an amazing run. I really zoned out and had endless amounts of power. I guess thats what a bunch of good sleep will do to you.

After the run Kelcie and I celebrated our 2 Years together. We went for some Vietnimese, It was different but good. We then capped the evening watching a movie. It was nice because we havent had time in a while to do that.

Conquering The Partey

Well last night was a late one as I can see from when I posted. So it was a late start to the day as well. I rolled outta bed around noon and slowly had some breakfast and a coffee. Last night was fun Robs house is always fun, its very relaxing they are very excepting people and it is really easy to be yourself there. He just got a new computer with windows 7. I must say its an improvement from this vista garbage. More on computer news the desktop here at home has called it quits. Right now I am blogging with my laptop plugged into a 48 inch LCD tv. Its pretty awesome.

This week I noticed I have my first follower. Its Bryan Payne, Bryan has had a blog of his own for years now and it has become quite popular. Its what inspired me to start this one. Now since there is a follower I feel obligated to come up with better blog posts as well as blog more consistantly.

One thing Bryan is good at is conquering the party. When I say that I mean not only having fun at the party but waking up and hammering out a workout the next day. Bryan was saying when he was training for his full ironman's on the long runs his companians would think that the booze smell coming off him was his colone. Anyways today I conqured the Party cause I hammered out a set on spinnervals on the bike at the gym as well as an extensive weight workout. It felt really good to just get soaked in sweat and really get the heart rate up!!!


I slept in today. I dunno why but I did and it felt good. I then grabbed the morning coffee and piked Kelcie up from school. After that I made my way home to work on my car which eventually frustrated me so much I had to go for a run.

the weather here has been ridiculous lately. 2 weeks ago I would have worn full winter gear to go cycling and today I ran in shorts! Its Nov 20 in Winnipeg. I had a great run though felt really relaxed and i was really focused.

The night was evenually capped off at my friend Robs. Rob is a unique guy and me and him have built up an extremly solid friendship. I have even stayed at his place for a month when he was outta town.

It all started in 2nd year university I had three night classes with him intro chem intro chem lab and philosophy. I knew that this guy had some stories. Eventually me and a friend started goin there for beers and such is life we are where we are now. I dont go there as often although I should Its a great vibe and its really comforable. Hence why I am writng at 4 am.

Anyways I am gonna use what left of tonight to sleep.

Time flys

I managed to keep busy all day again today. Started with coffee and then headed to an interview for a seasonal job. Then I picked up a check from green drop. Which I must say I am gonna have to go argue about. Then back home to start the cycle.

I farted around the house for about an hour before I suited up and got going. Once I finally did get out there I was amazed at how the time flew by. I took a new route today and the 2 hours flew by. It was an amazing day for a cycle with minimul wind which is odd for the praries but it was good to take advantage of it.

So I have now been unemployed for almost 2 weeks. And I must say it has been relaxing. I think of it as being funemployed I get to workout when I feel ready and catch up on everything I have been letting slip for the past little while.

Tuesday I had scheduled myself to do a long ride but the winds had picked up to 40 again and cycleing in that is just not enjoyable and there were other things I could do that day. So I chose to run. Even running the wind was still effecting me it was so strong running in to the wind felt like running up a hill. And that was in the bush!! I finished the day off with a weight session and then took it easy.

Wednesday was busy I had lots errends to run. I had a meeting at school about the snowboard association. Then I headed to the pool for a lunch hour swim. Met up with my cousin and then I had class till 8:30. The evening ended at the local bar the villa which is always fun.

Well since I don't have a scheduled job I have found it hard to wake up at any specific time. I just sleep until my body tells me its good to go. Its nice I need it I have be grinding myself for the last 4 years with no extended break and its nice to have the ability to just recover. My workouts have been more productive as well. Its amazing what quality rest will do.

Without a job I try to keep busy with other things. I have done a lot of stuff I have been meaning to do around the house, organized the beer run and also have become active again with the ski trip. Its good I am relaxed and very productive.

Today's workout was a swim with the triathlon Manitoba club. I have now been swimming with them for just over a year and have really begun to see drastic improvements in my swimming, in both my speed and output effort. Last year I moved from the rec swimmers lane up to the faster lane and then all the way to the fastest lane. I would get lapped in this lane but it was better then lapping the other guys in the other lane. But today was different, today I was one of the fast swimmers. Not only did I not get lapped I was keeping up, I was on there toes. I think I have just become efficient at swimming. Not only because I was keeping up, but because at the end of the sets I was not totally gassed. I mean dont get me wrong its a workout but I felt like I was being productive and not like I was just tring to make it through. I was connect to the water, we had an adhesive relationship.

Greasy Run

It was a tough weekend of workouts and I was able to squeeze all of them in as well as time with friends and taking in the santa claus parade. haha. Friday I hung out with my friends and took it easy. Saturday I had a brick to do and I wasnt really looking forward to it but it was so nice out side it was hard not to enjoy myself.

The day ended with a fish fry at Kelcies dads place and a trip downtown to the santa clause parade. I havent been to that in so long and it was amazing how many people showed up.

Today all I had left to do was a long run. It took me most of the morning to get ready and when I did start running it felt like I was sweating grease HAHA. All the grese was out after about 6 miles and from there on it was a good run.

Home for A Rest.

We= Davis and Chad

Well to say the least we DID Vegas. From the moment we showed up to the moment we left it was eventful. I will try to recap as much as I can on here but this blog will only be good enough to breifly recall the memories as vegas is an experiance that can not be expressed through words.

Wednesday Arrival Day:

Well it was up at 4:30 and off to the airport for what was going to be an amazing 5 days. We made it through all the security and caught the flight the people on the plane were fun and the time went by fast. In denver we grabbed a quick Mc breakfast and caught the transfer flight. This one was a little less eventful but also much shorter. From there it was all Vegas baby. We checked out bags at the hotel at 10AM and we had to burn time till 4. So we did what anyone would do got players cards and started to gamble. But when you gamble in vegas drinks are free!!! So we got pissed and had fun. Got into the room at 4pm and relaxed and set up and changed and got out by about 6. From there we had a few more drinks and hopped a limo to the Stratosphe. Where when we walked in it was all you can drink for 20 bucks. So we sat down pay 20 bucks and got pissed. Then on our way up to the rides we stopped in for a quick Oxygen treatment at the oxygen bar. Then we hit all the rides the spinnning on the drop one and the Drop of doom one. By this time I think it was Thursday was I will start a new day.

Thursday starting at 12AM

From the stratosphere we went to the strip club. Which to say the least was greasy. WE got back to the hotel around 3 and grabbed a quick bite at the bar. We hit the sack around 5:30. Up again at 7:30 Chad and I decided to Hit SEMA. When we arrived Our minds exploded. The cars were undescibible and only pictures can do some justice. We even got taken for a ride in a vette with a professional driver. When we got back to the hotel I went for a run then we met up with everyone else and went out again to explore the strip. So we walked we drank we gambled. Then we met up with my aunt and uncle at Margaritaville that was fun. From there we continued to walk and gamble and have fun. Untill about 5 in the morning again.

Up by 10 and back at SEMA by noon we spent the day there and even met Travis Pastrana. We got back to the hotel went for a swim in the pool cause it was a bomby 30 degrees celcius and then went out yet again to hit the town. This time to a Piano Bar where we had the whole crowd lovin us. Air Drums Air gutiar and even some people from saskatoon.

This was the only day were we had some recovery. Took it easy in the day and went shopping at the outlet mall. That took a better part of the day. I grabbed a couple hours after that then it was back to the strip for a final night of good times. We made our way to old vegas. And back to the Rio were I played craps won and got drugged.

I hadnt slept since some time saturday after noon and we caught the plane at 7 am it was a long trip home. Its good to be home for a rest.

Write off I slept till 3 went for a drug test and then went for a swim.
