And What Have You Done?

Photo credit to JoJo. Post AMRAPS, relaxing in the Sun. Wednesday (June 3) – I’m not even sure how it’s possible to be this far behind (AGAIN) in posts. I was all warm and fuzzy for having finally gotten everything up to date, I turn around and I’m behind again. Brutal. I’ve said it before, but I don’t know how...

May The Fourth B With You

R2-Kettlebell Monday (May 4) – WHAT A GREAT DAY FOR THE GEEKS OF THE WORLD! For those that know it’s Star Wars Day and another birthday @CrossFitCanuck. Happy Birthday Suz! I wasn’t sure what I was in store for today after a weekend of eating out. @Savannahjessie and I were hosting and put some serious miles on the Red Rocket...

Crushing the Curls…

Crushing The Curls Monday (April 27) – Gawd it’s dark at 4:50am. After a weekend filled with lots of activities and even after what felt like a lot of sleep, the desire to leave my nice warm bed does not exist. It’s been interesting to say the least, after reading the article on The After Myth (talked about in the...

That Wasn’t How it Was Planned

Drop off 1 of 4 Friday (April 24) – Now I’m sure when this was programmed, Tavia was thinking, “the end of April should be warm enough”. Warm enough for what? Well since @CrossFitCanuck changed sides of the street, there is a whole new world of running possibilities that have opened to us before, during and after WODs. That was...

Why Would You Do That

a Mountain to Climb… Wednesday (April 22) – Don’t drop heavy things on the new turf.  That announcement came from a very unhappy Tavia along with the WOD titled “It’s Not a Punishment… It’s a WOD”. My body finally put the brakes on me doing anything Tuesday morning.  After a long day at work and at @CrossFitCanuck, the alarm went...

The Program

Home away from home… Monday (April 13) – You can’t have improvement if you are doing the same things over and over again. You just can’t. The body will always adapt to find the easiest way to do anything. Same goes for CrossFit and today we started the new ‘Conjugate Method’. Basically we are going headfirst at our deficiencies that...

The Happiest Time of the Year

Weak wrists… Boo… Thursday (Feb 27) – It’s here. OMG (Oh my god for those who aren’t down with the short forms). The 2015 CrossFit Open starts tonight at 8pm with an announcement and a throwdown involving the 4-time CrossFit Games Champion Rich Froning. Now @CrossFitCanuck we have a little tradition on announcement night involving viewing the announcement and then...

A Heartfelt Thank You

THANK YOU! Monday (Jan 5) – Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. I cannot even put into words my thanks for all the well wishes and notes that have been posted since Saturday’s engagement announcement. @SavannahJessie and I are absolutely floored by the outpouring of love. The whole engagement so far has been a blur.  From the moment of the...
