We headed up to Whistler on Sunday afternoon because Trev is shooting a TV show up here for a few days. The show is putting us up at the Four Seasons Hotel, which I believe is the fanciest hotel in Whistler. :shock: The gym up here is crazy good. :shock: :shock: 6 treadmills, 6 stairmasters, free weights, every weight machine imaginable, and a mirrored studio area for stretching, yoga... and kickboxing training :boxer: :D

Sunday February 11th, 5:00-6:00pm:

Went for a 3 mile run on the treadmill. This was my first time ever on a treadmill and I discovered that running on a treadmill is way easier than trail running. After that I did some stretching then had a go with the free weights. I'm used to bodyweight exercises so I found the weights a bit foreign. My favourite machine was the lat pull down machine. I was able to do my bodyweight, just over a hundred pounds, for a few reps. Hopefully this will help me with my overhand pullups.

Monday February 12th, 12:00-1:00pm:

Another run, this time 2.5 Miles. The hotel staff brought me some lemon water about 20 minutes in on the machine (they must have known I was getting tired), it gave me a good boost and I ended up running for a full half hour. After that had a little swim and a long soak in the hottub.

In case you're wondering... no I don't ski or snowboard. Such a waste, I know, being in one of the premier ski destinations in the world. :oops: BTW -- Whistler sucks for vegans. There are fur stores all over the place and all the restaurants seem to be steak houses. We went out last night with a big (carnivore) group and the only thing on the menu we could have was the baked spring roll appetiser. The waiter felt some sympathy -- he said he was raised vegan but has since gone to the dark side and now eats bacon veggie burgers. :? I asked him to talk to the chef about adding something to the menu and he said he would. Tonight we're gonna try Thai food. Hopefully we'll have better luck.

Whistler update: Trev and I went out for Thai Food as planned last night and ended up having a fantastic vegan meal. The waitress was super nice and went and talked to the chef for us. We ended up getting a few custom vegan dishes -- spring rolls, pad thai, roasted vegetables with cashews and rice. It was a good thing we were there for a late dinner -- around 9:30pm, any earlier and they said we would have been out of luck with the custom order. We were very appreciative and tipped super well in hopes of helping the next vegans who wander in.

So, today is my last day up here. No more working out. I have a sore knee from all the running. I did however take advantage of the pool, hottub, and steam room today. I will be very sad to leave. It's pretty crazy staying at a place like this for free. :P

Saturday February 17th, 2-4pm:

Sparring Seminar

The seminar started out very well. Full face contact sparring at about 80% strength. I learned tons, had some great partners, took some good hits and gave some good hits.

I did two rounds with the scariest girl at our club. A better description of her is possessed-demon-street-brawler, actually. I survived the first round without getting too hurt and then I figured her out and was able to hold my own.

So I was feeling pretty good and I got paired up with another girl, a low belt and a southpaw. Very early on into the round we both roundkicked with the same leg, clashed, and because she outweighed me by forty pounds I lost my balance and fell over -- landing on my right wrist. It wasn't even a body shot or foot sweep for cryin' out loud. My hand went instantly numb. And that was the end of the seminar for me.

I spent the 2nd half sitting on the bench moping and icing my wrist. I'm not sure if it's broken or just badly sprained. I can't move my wrist, I can't put any pressure on my fingers or make a fist, it hurts to squeeze, and it's throbbing constantly. It's been almost 24 hours now. If it's still not better in a day or two I think I'll get it x-rayed.

The worst part is that I'm out for a while now. :cry: I always like to say pain is good, so I think i'll just sit back and try to enjoy the pain for a while.
