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...

When Your Training Week Turns Into…

Into a GIANT raging dumpster fire…   Well you know how I always seem to take on too much, well it seems I really enjoy a challenge (not the Kettlebell kind). After what seems like a lull, life has picked up to near breakneck speed. I’ve added two more classes t my coaching schedule (Canuck Lite on Monday and Wednesday...

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.

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...

BA NA NA!!!!

Minions!!! Monday (July 10) – WOOHOO!! Now I missed a workout day on Friday (and a #CanuckLite as I will now be calling CrossFit Lite) due to truly terrible time management. On a happy note, this terrible scheduling error fell exactly on the opening night of the MINION MOVIE!!! You can keep all your geek, nerdlet, big kid comments to...
