Insta Clip

I'm trying to gain followers on instagram. Just because I like attention, because I'm human. Follow me @jacob_boyd with more clips coming more often.

TBT/ Future Thursday

Oh man! Trips, trick ideas and all sorts of plans are coming up. I have three scheduled trips this winter. I'll be going to Whitewater mid February as well as Crystal and Kicking Horse for some comps. Hopefully I can fit in some trips to go film with the sled in there as well (Revelstoke).

Tonight is the staff party for the bar where I work. It'll be fun but it won't be easy to not drink either. I'll be the only sober person there. It's one of those times that reinforces the feeling that I'm the only person in Whistler that doesn't drink. Responses to this are varied, sometimes supportive, usually I'm just questioned as if I'm slow or something.

Back to Whitewater. I've never been there and experienced bad conditions. I'm going with Jon Grierson and I'm really stoked on stacking footy. This is a picture of my trip there when I was 19 years old. We struck gold with snow and had 10-20 cm's everyday, good times.

Right three: No grab and a visibly wet bum.

Lately: Where I'm at

Damn, it's been two weeks since my last post. Christmas madness sneaks up on us all. I kept reminding myself to take some time to soak up the holiday spirit in the weeks coming up to Christmas spirit. Before I knew though, it I'm neck deep buying gifts, seeing family, and working all the time. Aside from the awesome material things (foam roller, down jacket) my biggest Christmas gift was a head cold that I still have 8 days later. Thanks Santa.

All the remaining energy I've had has been put into work and shoulder rehab. I've skipped the heavy lifting and cardio so I can get back to 100% as soon as possible. I've also given myself a date to go ski: January 13. I'm Super psyched and little scared about that.

Here's the ender from a workout I tried today. Basically you workout to a song by Moby called Flower. Flower contains samples saying "bring sally up, bring sally down". You abide by these instructions and squat whenever Sally does. It's a brutal test of muscular endurance and will no doubt help with anyones skiing.

This is me thinking that I could just walk away from the workout:
