Day in the Life of Curtis Laurie

Thursday, January 7th

Thursday is one of my favourite days! Swimming in the morning with Windsor Aquatic Club Masters, with a crazy tough muscle building bike workout in the afternoon. These are my two areas of significant weakness in triathlon and I am working very hard to change this.

04:30 – Alarm goes off and getting my eyes open is a struggle after last night’s run workout.
05:00 – Toast with Nutella and a yogurt is my pre workout nutrition of choice this morning. I shake up a bottle of Infinit Jet Fuel with ice and a bottle of Infinit Repair with a ton of ice and toss everything in my swim bag.
05:15 – On my way to the pool for the first workout of the day. Jet Fuel in hand priming the engine for a great workout. 
05:30 – Hit the pool deck happy to see long course lengths are indeed instore for today’s workout. Check out the workout for the day below.

07:30 – Second breakfast at work consisting of oatmeal, banana and finish off Infinit Repair. 
08:00 – Morning meeting at the office to help a customer with his vision guided robotics application. I do business development for an engineering firm which uses “cameras” to find defects, ensure items are assembled correctly, and guide robots and sort products on automated machinery.

10:30 – Hungry again ...surprise... good thing I have a stash of granola bars in my desk. Starting my morning 1L of water. Also locked down a new project with an aerospace customer in Seattle.
12:00 – Lunch with a potential new customer. #CurtisTip: Thai Palace has an excellent Green Coconut Curry on Rice.
13:00 – More meetings that no one wants to hear about. On to the next fun part of my day... Can’t forget 1L of water for the afternoon.
16:30 – Just got home, time to jump onto the Computrainer. First, I like to have some protein on the bike so my Infinit Custom Blend is perfect for hard cycling workouts. This is the custom blend I like for my Ironman 70.3 distance races. Here is my second workout for the day.

20:00 – A little bit of cake to top off this amazing day of work, training and family time.
21:00 – Toss a load of laundry into the washing machine. At this point, I'm feeling pretty tight so stretching and foam rolling is top priority so tomorrow will not be very pleasant.
