It’s time to get this day started! Fresh coffee always starts my day.

Gym time!
It’s been six weeks since I had PRP on my knee. Lets kick today off with some electrocution squats!

1 on 1 training sessions gives me the chance to work on the smallest details in the gym right now. Core stability and leg strength is key!


It’s time for a post workout swim at the office! What a beauty day out here in Quebec City, homeland of poutine.

Loving my course at Stanford University. Trying to get some work done before the weekend!



Watched ‪@PoulinKayak on the live-stream of the Junior World Championships today. Nice win in that first 200m sprint man!


Afternoon activity of trying out the kayaks that the World Cup team use! Tricky – even with a good core!!
