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...

So, We Begin Again… From Scratch

Stretching the giant tree trunks… Friday (October 23) – So it’s been a while. When last we talked (or I typed and you read), I was sharing a pretty scary event with you. Thank you to those who passed on kind words after reading that little tidbit about fear. I’m fine. Well, fine as of right now. I haven’t had...

Top of the Heap

Living Dangerously, But Can’t Breathe Face Down Monday (July 6) – Well I am certainly feeling Saturday’s 40K when the alarm went off at 430am. Yeah, you read that right. Today was my first class teaching the 6am and 7am classes and as a result the super early wake up. My quads and hips were very tight and my eyes...

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...

That Wasn’t How it Was Planned

Drop off 1 of 4 Friday (April 24) – Now I’m sure when this was programmed, Tavia was thinking, “the end of April should be warm enough”. Warm enough for what? Well since @CrossFitCanuck changed sides of the street, there is a whole new world of running possibilities that have opened to us before, during and after WODs. That was...

Christmas in April

Post 40 minute CAP Thursday (April 9) – So this has been an unbelievable week so far and proof again that WODs (or working out in general) make me a much less cranky person (unless you do something dumb). With coaching classes on Monday and Wednesday nights’ and having gotten a WOD in Monday night, I was rearing to hit...
