15,330 Days and a Few More

This Guy has been keeping us busy… @RoRoFromMexico on Instagram. Hello? Is this thing on <taps microphone>? So, um, I’ve been gone for a while… Did you miss me? During this little hiatus I passed my 15,330rd day on ol’ Mother Earth and it has become clear to me that slipping in my health now will make it much more...

Happy St. Patrick’s Hangover

@eastbound_power with some get well soon balloons while I was rowing…   Well it’s been a month… Like I’ve been MIA for 30 days… What’s been going on?   LOTS.   www.bigbrnz.com was down for a bit thanks to some DNS issues… I missed on the February Sit-up Challenge (mostly because I was sick)… I started the March Calorie Challenge…...

New Addition!

RODRIGO catching some zzz’s after a big morning…   EXCITING NEWS FROM THE HILL! @SavannahJessie and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome RODRIGO to the family! That’s right, we are puppy parents! Now RoRo’s story hasn’t been a happy one thus far, he is just over two years old and someone left him tied to a bumper...

Is It Really??!!?

First Class… Boardroom of the original Toronto Stock Exchange   Can you believe that January is over already? No really, where has this month gone? One minute and I’m out for a frosty run on the 1st of January and the next I’m sitting in an office late on a Monday night trying to recap everything that has gone on....

The Garmin Experience Part 2

  So the Garmin saga continues…   And let me tell you, customer service still goes miles and miles. I got the Fenix3 and it was a massive upgrade from the Fenix2. Better smartphone integration, great battery life and GLONASS (another satellite system like GPS). I thought everything was going fantastic. It still wasn’t…   The first run with the...

Kind of a Big Deal

A very Happy 5th Birthday to CrossFit Canuck!   August 8, 2009. What’s significant about this date? Not too much really, it was just the first time I posted to Blogger about starting my fitness journey. The post was called ‘Getting Ready’ (click to read) and it basically gave a little bit of a background of who I was and...

LOTS

  Big Week? Well actually it was a big two weeks…   The training this week has been very interesting and not necessarily all good. What a miss mash of emotions. I’ve been actually able to attend CrossFit classes @CrossFitCanuck and participate like a regular person (well, one who has to modify a whole lot). I’ve been trying to work...

Proof!

hmm… missing @CadPro00 That sometimes my plans do work out… but mostly not.   Last weekend’s plan was WOD, Run and Reps for the July KB Challenge. All told, only 1 of those thing happened and probably not the one you were expecting. I missed the early morning classes, but still managed to make it to the 530 (#530Crew!!!!). For...

When Your Training Week Turns Into…

Into a GIANT raging dumpster fire…   Well you know how I always seem to take on too much, well it seems I really enjoy a challenge (not the Kettlebell kind). After what seems like a lull, life has picked up to near breakneck speed. I’ve added two more classes t my coaching schedule (Canuck Lite on Monday and Wednesday...
