Can’t Stand Up

Crime scene… Monday (December 14) – Home Stretch! 10 days until the Jolly Fat Man makes an appearance, Christmas Vacation and Snow! Right. That white stuff that puts the holiday spirit into people. There hasn’t been any of it and Mother Nature is making like it’s a late fall. You know, as I have gotten older, the skills that I...

Making Poor Decisions

The Cowlerie… Wednesday (December 7) – Have you ever had the chance to do what is right and instead done what was easy? Sure you have. So have I. We run into these decisions every day. Sounds serious? Sort of. I had the option to make solid decisions regarding food and instead of doing something smart, I did things that...

Off to See The Wizard

The Wizard of MAT! Wednesday (November 25) – So as @keilshammer loves to point out, there is a lot of talk on www.bigbrnz.com about injury (mostly mine). Yes, I’m clumsy. Yes, gravity does work against me which sometimes results in some entertaining and yet highly painful experiences. Sometimes it almost makes me wonder if it’s just me or if other...

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...

Playoff Fever and the Top Shelf

At the game with these goons! Thursday (October 8) – I CAN’T FEEL MY ARMS! Ok, don’t panic. It’s still dark, I didn’t take magnesium and oh yeah, we worked the arms like it was our job yesterday. I wasn’t planning getting anything off the top shelf today, that’s for sure. Well, that was the plan until I got back...

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....

And Where Do We Go From Here?

Still looking for the path… Monday (August 24) – So after my adventures in the far reaches yesterday, I wasn’t sure what the body would allow me to do today. I was a mess. My only thoughts upon walking in the house, get food, find sugar, sleep… I wish I could have completed that last item a little better. I...

What About The Running

Post WOD Crazy Eyes… Wednesday (August 12) – So I mentioned that @savannahjessie challenged me to a Century Challenge on Nike Running and to date I have absolutely sh*t the bed. Unlike the last two years where I was training for the Scotiabank Waterfront Half Marathon, this year I have been avoiding the pavement. Actually that’s harsh, I have increased...

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...
