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...

Something Shiny

An actual Emmy… Pretty sweet!   Something less shiny, but it is an interesting use for old kegs…   So one shiny that’s really pretty cool and then one which is a little bit less so (although an interesting repurposing). The Emmy was located at Cisco’s Learning Centre in the RBC building on Queens Quay. I was downtown on Wednesday...

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...

What Did We Just Talk About?

  Nutrition, nutrition and nutrition.  Such as having some before you head out on a run. Geez. Clearly I didn’t learn anything (as I headed out this morning sans food… that means without for you non Francophones)… or maybe I did. I had a chat with @CanuckCoach and explained my situation from Saturday’s meltdown and she decided I needed to...

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...

Happy Long Weekend

  The LONG WEEKEND is HERE!!! Excited much? Just a bit. I got an extra long weekend thanks to some recently discovered unused vacation days and Friday I got to spend a little extra time @CrossFitCanuck to make up for my total schlep mode on Thursday. I mean I had intentions to get out and run, but a delayed start...

Time vs. Distance

Lots of Nights working with these Guys. Congratulations to Gord and Cheryl! Simple enough right? Get to a predetermined distance within a variable window of time in order to achieve your goal. For some it’s very straightforward. Complete a set distance in a certain period of time. That’s it, that’s all. Simple. For me the distance isn’t just a literal...

Milestones and Grindstones

Where I spent a solitary Sunday afternoon… Milestones? Well how about a spirited round ‘Happy Anniversary to Me’ (and I wouldn’t say no to drums or Handstands either)? Can you believe not 3 days after my last post, I celebrated my 2 YEAR COACHING ANNIVERSARY at @CrossFitCanuck. 2 whole years!! It’s crazy right? I probably couldn’t tell you exactly how...
