I consider myself a gym regular. I gym regularly. This would probably be the definition, no? I usually go to the University of Toronto Athletic Centre, but will occasionally gym at home, because my condo has a fairly decent gym (for a condo), or even at Hart House if there is no other option. I’ve only ever been to Goldring once, but wasn’t a huge fan because the lights shine directly into my eyes when I bench. Now, being a gym regular, I consider myself somewhat well-versed in gym etiquette. While normally I don’t experience any issues in the gym, every now and then something stupid happens and I just don’t understand how people can live this way.
After a long hiatus, here is a blog post.
We had our first fit test of the 2017-2018 season a couple Thursdays ago at A4A. It was really more of a baseline test, as none of our subsequent tests will resemble it in any way. The point was to give our recruits (and vets) a general idea of where they stand compared to everybody else and to see what they might need to work or focus on.
Today Yesterday, Dragon Boat Canada held a town hall meeting where they introduced the central region committee members and explained the general workings of DBC. I learned that the central region includes not only Ontario, but also Nunavut. Did you know that?
Today was originally scheduled to be the last team run of the off-season. I was a little sad, not because it was the last run, but because we didn’t have the day off because man, I really wanted to sleep in for Easter. While it was an “optional” practice, it was also “highly recommended” and I would’ve felt bad sleeping while the rest of the team was at practice.
Fortunately! Through a joint effort, Gavin was persuaded to allow us to replace the run with a different kind of activity: ultimate frisbee!
My blogging has fallen shamelessly off the bandwagon and was stressing me out because I felt pressured to post when I was feeling lazy so I have decided to only post sporadically when I feel like it and thus not have to feel guilty about neglecting it.
I felt like today warranted a post and I’m going to write it right away so I don’t procrastinate and then forget about it and then never ending up actually posting it.
Today we had our final off-season fit test before the water season starts!

Yeah, um, I’m not very good at estimating how many parts a series should have.

We got so much thrown at us on just the first day of racing, if I didn’t do things in chronological order, I wouldn’t know where to start. Also I ended up having too much to write about, so I had to add more parts to this series.
