Times have changed and times are strange

Here I come, but I ain’t the same…
Mama, I’m comin’ home.

Booked my flight home yesterday–it’s going to be good to get back for a visit, though a bit of a hassle to keep up the training while I’m away. I’m going to be spending 4 days in Fredericton, so I’m going to call the Fredericton Boxing Club today and try to schedule a few workouts. The rest of the time in Carleton County is going to have to be mostly running–hopefully the knee will be up to it.

I’m looking forward to the trip–thanks to FaceBook I’ve re-contacted a few old friends that I’m going to try and meet up with.


Speaking of FaceBook…

I lived in Bridges House my entire time in university–while I was there, there was a guy named Roger who would go through the residence late, typically after midnight, selling subs to all of us drunks, stoners and insomniacs (I fit into two of those groups).

Roger left a message on the Bridges House group’s “wall” a couple days ago.

I believe that makes it official–everybody in the industrialized world now has a FaceBook account.

Today was a recovery day–workouts were fairly light. It was great to get in the yoga studio again after a couple weeks. A few poses were pretty tough–I cramped up a little here and there, as I’m not sure I had completely replenished electrolytes from the day before. I’m going to add more Gatorade during workouts to combat this.
