In the US, yes, but not on the West Coast. We are in the Eastern region so if we can get games against US leagues we tend to play in our region. I'm sure we'd love to play Rose, but that's a long trip!

Come on out to the Rose City!

If I'm there, I can show you around my hometown area :)

Hope all is great. Have a lovely week!

I'd love to visit Portland again... it's a great city. I'll let you know if it ever does happen!

Work conference on Friday and traveling for a bout on Saturday meant eating on the road. I don't know how to enter items from restaurants/not made by me. I think even my best guess would be pretty far off.

Monday I went to my 2-hour off-skates training. I'm feeling a bit sore now, but nothing compared to how I felt the last time I went. I can actually walk pretty normally.

Tues 9 Oct 2012

Food
Cal: 1,828 (a little short given exercise for the day)
C: 258g / 57%
P: 115g / 24%
F: 40g / 19%

Exercise
Cycled to home to work to practice to home (little over an hour total)
2-hour derby practice

Just found out that one of my co-workers is part of the Gotham Girls roller derby in NYC. Small world, roller derby keeps getting bigger.

I'm gonna see if I can resurrect this log.

I started a new job in December. I can't use the internet there, so my time is a bit tighter these days. Since starting there, I've lost a couple of kilos in weight. I'm not sure why. Perhaps eating lunch out less (used to work near my girlfriend and we'd go out for lunch a lot) and/or cycling a bit more. It's 6 miles each way so now 12 miles a day rather than 8.

Here's my schedule -- not too different
Monday: cycle to/from work, 2-hr off skates training
Tuesday: cycle to/from work and practice, 2-hr derby practice
Wednesday: cycle to/from work
Thursday: cycle to/from work, 2-hr derby practice
Friday: cycle to/from work, 2-hr off skates training (depending on social plans)
Saturday: rest
Sunday: 3-hr derby practice

I've been ill twice this month, which is really unusual for me. I think my body was tired out. I hope that I won't be ill again for a while!

So my current stats are that I'm 5'5" (that's not changing!) and about 68kg (150lbs). I'll put some photos up when I have a chance.

The WFTDA have got rid of geographic regions and moved to a divisional structure, and now our A travel team (which I am not on) is going on a west coast tour! They'll be stopping in Portland and playing Rose. Too bad I'm not on the team!

I'm finally back to cycling. I took time off while I was ill, which was about a month in the end! I still have a lingering cough, but I at least feel OK. I still went to all my Monday off-skates sessions and missed only a few practices. I'm now going away this weekend and next, so I'll miss a bit of practice and one off-skates training.

Does your derby team play the Bronx? One of my friends just made their team recently, I'm hyped.

Finally all better and the weather isn't too bad now. I've been cycling regularly for a few weeks and am feeling pretty good. I keep meaning to get some photos but haven't got around to it.
