Monday morning

Good morning,

I just got back from my morning bike ride. I woke at 6am put on some coffee and went up a mountain close to our house. I am trying to exercise 5 times per week.

The bike I am using now is from an old ski racing friend of mine,Gary Walthers. I guess he was cleaning his house realized he was not going to us the bike any more and decided to give it to me. Lucky! It is an older bike but a very good one! I appreciate him very much. I have so many good friends around the world. Just like many of you!

Have a great day and enjoy!

Hi From Doug

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well! My family and myself are good.

In Canada I have not seen much news of the radiation leak in Japan. I hope the recovery is going well.

It has been a very cool and rainy spring in Kelowna. Some ski hills have stayed open much later than past years.

I have been training more myself this spring. I have been getting up at 6 am and either do a 30 minute run or 30 minute bike ride. During the run I do intervals at about 80% effort for 1 minute. I do 3 sets. My bike ride is a up hill climb for 20 minutes. I feel great! I Have more energy during the day and a much larger appetite!

I hope you are all able to improve your physical fitness this summer. Do your best!

Bye for now.
