Play Smarter and Harder

  It’s all about being smart. As I have gotten older I’ve taken a page out of @richfroning book and decided to work smart.  I know my limits… well at least some of them. With the state of my knees, extreme loads and depths at or below 90 degrees cause some issues. When you get a WOD or any type...

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...

Getting Mobile

The Supernova of Pain Monday (December 7) – Does anybody remember the other part of getting healthy? Not the eating or the activity (lifting, cycling, running or whatever else you do), but the component that is often forgotten. Mobility. Stretching. Rolling out. Smashing.

Keep track of how much weight. Keep track of how long it takes. Be able to measure and compare. Measurability is one of the ways you can find out how...

Finish… Just Finish.

Tuesday (October 27) – REGULAR CLASS! What? Really? After the solo Saturday and a nice walk around the Hill with @SavannahJessie, Tuesday was WOD time! I got a chance to pop into the 530pm class to hit the never-ending chipper that Tavia cooked up for us. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to go RX, especially with the shoulder...

So, We Begin Again… From Scratch

Stretching the giant tree trunks… Friday (October 23) – So it’s been a while. When last we talked (or I typed and you read), I was sharing a pretty scary event with you. Thank you to those who passed on kind words after reading that little tidbit about fear. I’m fine. Well, fine as of right now. I haven’t had...
