thanks man !
Sometimes I find it more like a lazyness log than a training log, but I will try to change that during summer with a hardcore training and maybe some kung fu classes.

I know it's still spring, but it's always raining. I'm not working many days this week and wanted to do cycling, but look at this shitty weather, this is unbelievable :

Mon: rain
Tues: rain
Wed: rain
Thur: rain
Fri: cold and cloudy
Sat: rain
Sun: the only sunny day... the day I usually rest, because there's so many cars and cyclists that day it's annoying.
Mon: rain

Rain Sucks !! :evil:
I can only ride in the rain if it was with a friend or a group ride.

I'll have to peek my nose in here once in a while. I hope you don't mind. :wink:

Indeed Tasha, and it's still raining today and most of the week again. What is going on? It wasn't that bad in the past few years, at least not that I remember of. The weather is warmer in B.C ? I heard there's lots of people from Quebec too going to Vancouver.
But it doesn't matter, still got all summer, and right now I'm taking advantage of the rain to read and write more, and to watch movies.

I'm taking a break from this journal for this week... haven't done any cycling because of the rain.
I just did some resistance training, just the usual bodyweight stuff.

The rain actually doesn't bother me. I won't run though if it's a thunderstorm, because of all the lightning in Florida. The rain actually cools you off, just have to bring extra clothing for when you go back into the airconditioned gym.
The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible.

Yeah riding and running in the ran is a different story.
I love running in the rain. It's refreshing and you get to go home much earlier then a ride.
But riding in it is a different story. I'm usually out there for 3-5 hrs. Then stopping for a flat, light, accident etc... Then as you're waiting you body cools down. Then you start to feel numb, you're soaked. And trying to climb back on your bike and get going is probably the toughest part.
So If I had a choice I wouldn't ride in the rain, wind, snow etc...
Sun, and drizzle I'm okay with :wink:
I love your warm climate ! Shame on you for having good warm weather :)

yeah running under the rain is fun, refreshing, and walking under rain is relaxing. Even when it's a storm, all we need is to be prepared mentally; but most people will just panic and run in search of shelter.

Cycling under the rain is difficult to bear and I always see it as a test of mental endurance!
But one or two times it didn't bother me, I could even say I liked it. There was rain but I climbed the Mount-Royal mountain 8 times in a row ( the international cycling race that takes place there is about 14 times I think), usually I'm tired/bored after 3 times. I think the fact that I was the only one on the mountain crazy enough to brave the rain gave me more energy and motivation.

I'm impressed with your with your diet and your training routine.
What I'm most impressed with is your raw food knowledge. Especially when you haven't been raw for very long.
Myself I had struggle with it for the first few months.
But now for someone being raw for 2 yrs.
I must say I've been learning quiet a bit from what your posts on here. :D
Your training log is very inspiring Keep it up :)

Thank you!
I didn't even know you were raw!
What I like the most about eating raw foods is the peace of mind it gives. Espescially when it's organic. Eventhough the fertilizers farms use is from dubious origins, I feel better than when eating other foods not knowing exactly what it contains.
I like eating fruits after fruits, so easily digested by the body. Or today I had zuchini-spaghetti with mashed avocado, some garlic and fine herbs, it takes 2 minutes to make and it's so delicious.

That sounds so good. What kind of herbs do you use?

most of times just basilic, garlic, sea salt... perhaps some finely chopped hot peppers. But you could use also more Italian herbs like oregano, thym, aneth, romarin... And parsley, pepper.
