It Doesn’t Always Go As Planned

The build up… Sunday (November 22) – Have you ever had one of those embarrassing moments? Runners have them occasionally (hence all the porta-potties that you find on running routes). When you start getting the body moving all kind of other things get moving to. Sunday was coaches meeting and we had ourselves a little WOD before. Nothing crazy but...

Let’s Go Blue Jays!

IT Boys night seats for +Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees Saturday (September 26) – Holy Moly! You may have noticed the ‘significant gap’ between the posting dates (even though the actual were posted within a couple of days of each other), but lots and lots has happened since the last time at @CrossFitCanuck. You would think I would have learned...

Worth The Squeeze

Thinking the deep thoughts… Thursday (September 17) – Where have I been? Well it’s been a busy time in Toronto. Blue Jays, Maple Leafs and Photoshoots. Craziness right? Well the photos will be posted once we get them back (@SavannahJessie has given me exclusive posting rights!) so you will have to wait to see them. I wanted to talk about...

So, About That Challenge…

1 bar going up (nice pull @arboristriley) and 1 coming down… Tuesday (September 8) – In a time long ago, at a cottage far away, 2 inebriated CrossFitters decide that they should see who could do Grace faster. Great idea right? Well it was until one of them aggravated his shoulder and decided it wouldn’t be a good idea. Rain Check....

Listen for the Voice

Last Canuck Lite with @SavannahJessie and Coach Z (@zlreyes) Monday (August 31) – All good things must come to an end. Hmm. Disagree. Nothing has to really end if you don’t want it too and sometimes there just needs to be a little break. As I sit here on the Labor Day long weekend finally getting caught up (which sometimes feels...

Eating Sandwiches, Not The Fun Kind

@SarahBassels and I post Sandwich Saturday (August 22) – I needed a night off. Bigtime. Oh, I forgot to mention that we are currently undergoing major renovations at work and as a result, the IT Boys (@phillyk007 and I) have been doing our best impression of ‘2 Guys and a Truck’ moving company. It has been less than pleasant. Oh,...

When You Have Nothing Left

I’m OK, thumbs up… Wednesday (August 19) – Here’s a question for you as you read this. How do you push yourself to keep going when you really don’t want to? Now some people use competition to drive them, others just try and keep up to the person in front of them. I ask, because I am really interested in...

I Forgot Rule #1… Again…

Headed Home Tuesday (Aug 4) – Rule #1, don’t go on vacation. Sound extreme? Yes, but it’s not the vacation, but the coming back from the vacation that is the hard part. Toosdays. Twosdays. Tuesdays. Right, Tuesday isn’t one of my normally scheduled classes @CrossFitCanuck, but after all the time ‘off’ it’s time to get back to work. Well no...
