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.
The gym up here is crazy good.
6 treadmills, 6 stairmasters, free weights, every weight machine imaginable, and a mirrored studio area for stretching, yoga... and kickboxing training
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.
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.
