Theory and Practice

In theory there should be no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is a lot.

I've not long finished reading Tommy Angelo's book where one of the most important take aways from me should be his original advice which is to lop of your C game. By consistently lopping off what is then your C game, your game will improve.

Currently in Whistler for a couple of weeks where the snow is phenomenal but the visibility poor. A forced rest day today when the weather closed almost all of the lifts.
