That was a quickie. I can vividly remember the first races of the season in Silverstar as if it was yesterday, and now I'm looking at my calendar planning my upcoming time off in April (which will consist of making some serious coin so I can continue to live the "extravagant" skier lifestyle). It's sad in a way, athletes "endure" seven months of training only to be rewarded with four months of the good stuff. O well, by the time March rolls around my body is aching to do some dry-land training, in which I soon get bored of it and want back on snow. Meh.
With World Junior Championships 2008 in the books, Nationals is the final shebang before the season comes to a close, and Callaghan Valley will make for a wicked venue this year. Well actually Whistler-Blackcomb is going to be the wicked venue, but the ski site is close enough.
Well this articles wasn't named "Kevin's Mindless Chatter - Part 1" so I'll leave you with the "McMurtry Report", the result of a boring afternoon in Italy.
A quick note: At 1:15 when McMurtry states "Consuming more calories than your burning, but still losing weight", he is referring to heated debate between camera crew and program anchor prior to the filming of this report. McMurtry believes the loss of body fat [weight?] is the result of exercise expenditure greater than consumed calories. Well, no. But don't take my word for it, here's the proof from the pudding.
