Right to the Edge

Wow, what a week. Professionally and physically I have had everything I can take. It has been one serious rollercoaster the last couple days and my body is taken all it can.  Not a very cheerful start, but I’m still here kicking and I am loving it (well, except for the server failure part). I’m taking tomorrow off so it...

Real Life Nightmare

Today every IT Geeks worst nightmare came true for Your Friendly Neighborhood Desk Pilot. In preparation for a major network backbone upgrade we (PK and I) had to make some changes to the server the hosts the Big K voicemail (and which I’ve been trying to get upgraded forever).  The machine has been running non-stop for about 7 years and...

Not Strictly Strict

I’ve been eating really well the last month plus, but with the change in programming and the extra WODs for the Open I am having trouble recovering. 7 hours sleep (at least) a night, fruit, veggies and meat. Recovery drinks after class and protein shakes a couple of days a week, but I’m still having some soreness. Nothing is injured...

No this will not be a ‘religious’ post, that was merely what was heard in a silent box as today’s WOD ended.

The Little Things

Sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference. It can be something you say or do and you may never know how you affected someone’s life. Today was one of those days and Jillian (Tavia) has no idea how just a little nudge can get a big body moving.  Tonight is the Gala of Light, a charity fundraiser...

Balls

Get your minds out of the gutter. That’s not what the title of this post is about, but I won’t lie every time someone said balls the whole #530Crew (especially Katie) would start giggling and yell ‘Balls’. We were back to working on the ‘Outlaw Way’, balls of our feet, heels and then back to the balls. Of course we...

Now I’ve Done IT

Well it’s OFFICIAL. Today I signed up for the Toronto Waterfront Half-Marathon. I’m feeling a little bit faint here… Well the easy part is done and with 28 weeks to go it looks like the training is about to serious. Well maybe not serious, but it’s about to get more consistent and more regular. Intensity shouldn’t be a problem as...
