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...

Getting Mobile

The Supernova of Pain Monday (December 7) – Does anybody remember the other part of getting healthy? Not the eating or the activity (lifting, cycling, running or whatever else you do), but the component that is often forgotten. Mobility. Stretching. Rolling out. Smashing. Whatever it takes to get those sore muscles loosened up. Now mobility isn’t a naturally intuitive thing...

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...

What Are You Looking At???

@paulperena and his covert selfie… Monday (August 10) – See what happens when you leave your iPhone unsupervised? You find random photos in your Camera Roll. Have you ever had this happen to you? I know that @sarahbassels has. Well the catch for these unattended selfies is that when you have a blog, these selfies become famous. OK, maybe not...

Sun’s Out, Guns Out

Gunshow? C’mon Megatron… Wednesday (July 8) – Well I’m excited to still be able to function after the madness that was Monday night and my first double. It’s funny, but @CADPRO00 asked which was harder (CrossFit or CrossFit Lite) and I wasn’t sure I could give him an answer. They were different, but both were incredibly challenging albeit (always wanted...

Deep Thoughts…

Check out my new shirt from @savannahjessie! Wednesday (June 17) – Sometimes you learn a lot before the sun rises. Interesting concept? It is, especially when your eyes are barely open. The first thing I learned was that sometimes the fight isn’t against a barbell or the clock at @CrossFitCanuck, but getting out of bed and to the box. Some days...

Sometimes You Don’t Win

Monday Tuesday (May 19) – Well it sure did feel like a Monday, especially after all the things that were going on. Now the title doesn’t sound like one of those happy ones and you would be right. Sometimes you just can’t win the fight, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t try. One of the greatest things @CrossFitCanuck (and...

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...
