Also did a great workout today. 30 minutes of the stair climbing. one set of running step by step jogging, walking down controlled and slow. Next set, running up, skipping one step with a lunging motion. last set walk up backwards! All sets fallowed by walking down slowly and controlled. I kept repeating the sets over and over for 30 minutes.

Have a great day! Keep up the good workouts!

June 25 Update

Hello everyone,

How are all of you! Great I hope! I am fully recovered from my flu bug. That was terrible!

I played soccer tonight. We won 5-2 ! I played mid field. No I did not score. I am trying to get soccer legs back again.

We got a lot of rain yesterday and it snowed in the high hills around Kelowna. Yes, snow! My mom said it snowed 10 cm at Big White. She lives up at the Ski Hill.

No other new news for now!

Bye !

June 17 Update

Hello Everyone,

Well, I unfortunately picked up the flu bug from Makaiya and have been in bed the past 2 days! Yes, very sick Gedi to Gedo gedo! I have not felt like that in a long time! I would not want to share those feelings with anyone.

Today was Fathers Day here in North America. It is a day to celebrate being a dad! Usually, celebrated with a card and maybe a small gift. We went out for Brunch. Brunch being between breakfast and lunch. My stomach was still upset so I could not eat. I just had juice. It was ok because my dad and Chrissy's mom and dad were with us. They could enjoy the meal.

Have a great week! keep that exercise going! I know this next season coming up will be another level up for everyone!

Bye for now!

June 14 Update

Hello !

I did feel not as sleepy during the day today! I did start work late because Makaiya was sick all night. She was throwing up and did not sleep much! I felt bad for her!

So when I arrived home, Chrissy told me of a place close to a small town called Oyama. Now Oyama is about 20 Minutes from Kelowna. This place is a den for rattle snakes. I guess there are hundreds of them. I do not want to go there.

I will also pit more pictures up from tajanna's Grad.

Bye for now!

It is early morning in Canada. I have Jet lag. I could not sleep on my flight home. I was too excited to see my family, and too excited about my life! Things are so exciting!

I am back at work installing cabinets. I am so sleey during the day though. Enjoy the pictures.

More later!

June 7 Update

Hello everyone,

I just arrived back from Onjuku. I stayed with Yasuda San for a couple of days. It was so much fun! Yasuda San and Jun Chan teached me how to surf. On the second day I made progress and found everything easier. Especially paddling! The first day my balance was at the back of the board! Needless to say I was very tired that day!

We also went golfing. Jun Chan played well and took Yasuda Sans and my money. We played a skins game. We played the Camel course. It was a fun challenging course. In 9 holes my best rounds were 43 twice, 48, and 50! I did not play my best golf but had too much fun, had great golf partners, and played a course that had a completely different view that I have ever played before.

Onjuku is such a nice area. I wish all of you best and hope you enjoy the time you spend there.

I have also heard many of you are doing more muscle training this year. Great! In surfing a little I found the paddling motion is very good for shoulder strengthening. Also good for strengthening your back. If you can keep your heart rate up it would also be good for endurance. It is very important to keep the stomach strong as well and keep body balance. So do those sit up and crunch work outs. Now strengthening our legs is the important area! Surfing does not really touch that part of the body so if possible include leg workouts into your day if you can. Legs are of course the main focus for ski racing!

The great thing about ski racing is that it is fun yes. The goals we set for it though pull us to a strong, healthy life style. My goal is that even in my older years I still have a strong, healthy, flexible, athletic body! And why not if I maintain my body through exercise and healthy thinking. Yes, our minds are part of it! Every morning see all the good things in your life and see what great things are to come!

Bye for now
