Zen proverbs.

'Be a master of mind, rather than mastered by mind.'

'Those who know don't tell and those who tell don't know.' 

Zen proverbs. 

Summary of past two weeks.

Summary of the past two weeks:

UBC training camp May 16-18.   Housing at Gage Tower Suites, swims at the beautiful UBC outdoor pool, bikes and runs on the endowment lands.  Friday bike session was on the UBC hill heading up from Spanish Banks.   Good fun with JP taking the bike hill TT prime.   

Monday May 19th was the North Shore Sprint.   Nice racing, a few hiccups on the run course but overall a good training race.  

Wed May 21 the boys (and Alex) raced the Newton Hilly Crit with Scotty taking the B win followed by Aaron and Matt.   Way to go SD!   Is it time for group A.    The group A race was taken by A-Mac.   Nice job!  

Specific Prep training continued through the week along with some open water swims at Thetis and Durrance.  Based on Sharpie's comments, Durrance is still a wee bit cool. 

Sunday May 25 was the Shawnigan Lake Sprint for Scotty, Matt, Aaron, Christine and Jennifer. Nice racing!!

Walk the Line - Get Rhythm

Well Neil and I always talk about rhythm.. so listen to Joaquin Phoenix doing a great rendition of Johnny Cash's ' Get Rhythm' The next time you're swimming or running, play this tune in your head and - get some rhythm..

Conquering Thetis Lake - May 11, 2008

climbing into the suits... some forgotten in a dusty
corner since last fall....

Matt and Brook - seems like they have grown
since the last time they wore their wetsuits.....
are they going to fit???

Coach PK urging them on... "really, we only swam
a few days later last year"... forgetting to mention that
Victoria has just had one of the coldest springs on record...
we had snow on April 19th for heaven's sake!!!

PK telling them.. "oh yeah I didn't bring the kayak today
so if you get into trouble.. well, ask one of those guys
fishing to help you out".....

"you have got to be kidding!!!!" ... word is they did it
for their Mom's... today being Mother's Day!!

the video says it all....
