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....

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...

No Really. Where Has The Time Gone.

After a super sweaty welcome back WOD… Can you believe the summer is almost over? No it’s true. August is about to give way to September, Fall is coming, traffic is going to get worse (now that everyone and their uncle is back from vacation) and there is a wedding just around the corner (@savannahjessie, I’m looking in your direction)....

You Need a Minute

What was left after finishing… Monday (November 30) – It’s always great when someone throws down a challenge and getting two at the same time is twice as nice. Friendly (and sometimes not) competition drives us to push just a little bit harder sometimes and strive to be a little bit better. Sound weird? It’s not; think about every math...

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...

Coming Full Circle

@CapPro00, @Keilshammer and I after going ‘Full Circle’ Monday (November 16) – Coming full circle? What cryptic message is this? Well one of the main things about CrossFit is measuring. Keep track of how much weight. Keep track of how long it takes. Be able to measure and compare. Measurability is one of the ways you can find out how...

Making The Most of Your Time

Empty box, some rowers and a water bottle… Thursday (October 29) – After seeing how my body performed during yesterday’s Exercise Stress Test, I felt a whole lot better about trying to resume a normal workout schedule. I won’t lie, this whole thing has shaken me up a little bit. I was angry and scared at the thought that I...
