A quick post from James Wilson answering a question that I'm sure many of us have had!!

Overtraining is a funny thing - either you never have to worry about it because you are too lazy to work that hard (nothing wrong with that in some respects) or you seem to be in a constant battle with it as you try to balance your desire to do more and work harder with the reality that you can't physically handle everything you think you need to do. Some riders need a kick in the pants and some, like the rider in this Rider Q&A blog post, need to be told it is alright to back off a bit every now and then.

I recently received this email from James Wilson about the ability to recover efficiently during exercise efforts.  Whether you are out on the trail or at the gym Your ability to recover between hard efforts is a vital skill that can be just as important as training your ability to work hard.

Summer 2012

Well what a summer, full of big adventures and big news.
b2ap3_thumbnail_Winter-Photos-2009-12-25-005.JPG
We started by changing locations from the beautiful Kootenays to the equally beautiful Cormorant Island off the Northern tip of Vancouver Island. "Location, location, location" say the real estate and vacation ads we are always seeing. So we moved from one amazing location to another.

During the time of preparation for this big move it was announced that Snowboarding was going to be introduced to the 2014 Paralympics at Sochi, Russia.

So the summer began moving into a new job at the "Alert Bay Lodge".  What an amazing place to move to get away from it all. We have mountain biking on the island, although its only cross country it has been some of the most technical difficult riding i have come across. I've spent more time upside down in the bushes than ever before quite often still connected to my bike. I never thought that knee pads would be an essential part of cross country biking, but they have become essential if I don't want BMX guy shins.  LOL

The summer has been amazing biking around our little island. We raced in a recreational mtn bike race call the Dog Run (get your pant on) in which Natasha came 2nd and I didn't finish last. We also competed in our first kayak race called the "Alert Bay 360" and were the 3rd non Olympic style kayak to finish and walked away with an amazing first nations carved mask.

Heavily intermingled with our recreating has been training at the little gym we have here on the island and keeping up with work at the lodge and catering to people from all over the world.
