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...

15,640lbs and New Kicks

  So these posts are going to be coming at you a bit out of order. Not a huge deal, but just in case we get to my ride blog and you think to yourself WTF? This happened way before he got new shoes, why are we only hearing about this now. Through the joys of time management, I’m trying...

15,330 Days and a Few More

This Guy has been keeping us busy… @RoRoFromMexico on Instagram. Hello? Is this thing on <taps microphone>? So, um, I’ve been gone for a while… Did you miss me? During this little hiatus I passed my 15,330rd day on ol’ Mother Earth and it has become clear to me that slipping in my health now will make it much more...

Is It Really??!!?

First Class… Boardroom of the original Toronto Stock Exchange   Can you believe that January is over already? No really, where has this month gone? One minute and I’m out for a frosty run on the 1st of January and the next I’m sitting in an office late on a Monday night trying to recap everything that has gone on....

Kind of a Big Deal

A very Happy 5th Birthday to CrossFit Canuck!   August 8, 2009. What’s significant about this date? Not too much really, it was just the first time I posted to Blogger about starting my fitness journey. The post was called ‘Getting Ready’ (click to read) and it basically gave a little bit of a background of who I was and...

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...

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...

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...

Pushing The Weight

Goals… Wednesday (Aug 5) – Squishy. Not crispy do much, but squishy. My body is still trying to figure out what part of the country it’s in and I am just starting to feel the ache from yesterday’s insanity. My brain is foggy… bigtime. As I rolled out and greeted the World this morning, I was contemplating the running challenge....
