11/02/2005: "9 months..."
The training starts now. If all goes well, 9 months from now I'll be attempting to qualify for the world age-group championships. The Canadian qualifer is at the Caledon on the August Long weekend. The top 10 people from each age group will qualify for a spot at the world age group championships in Lausanne Switzerland on September 2nd and 3rd.
It may be a long shot, but it'll serve as motivation during the countless hours of training for the next 9 months. I've been taking it fairly easy for the last 2 months, not really following any specific training plan, but keeping active.
