And What Have You Done?

Photo credit to JoJo. Post AMRAPS, relaxing in the Sun. Wednesday (June 3) – I’m not even sure how it’s possible to be this far behind (AGAIN) in posts. I was all warm and fuzzy for having finally gotten everything up to date, I turn around and I’m behind again. Brutal. I’ve said it before, but I don’t know how...

When Your Bodywash is Trying to Kill You

Normal Dial Bodywash… Or so you would think Friday (April 10) – So Bruce (you remember Bruce, my coworker who ran his first Half Marathon last year) brought in a book called ‘How to Know if Your Cat is Trying to Kill You’ in to work. I didn’t read it, but I felt that the author caught the disposition of...

Switching Gears

Row Command Centre Switching gears? That’s right followers, with the Half Marathon over, Tavia has now begun my training for the Canadian Indoor Rowing Championships with an eye on getting to the Worlds. A tall order? Possibly. I need to shave 60 seconds off my best 2,000m time, but anything is possible with hard work. I’m not fooling myself here,...

CrossFit Level 1 Weekend

It’s been a rough week running wise (in like I haven’t been) and it’s been an even rougher week studying wise (it’s going slowly for my L1 and not at all for the Microsoft Certification party). I’m getting a little bit freaked out. It’s like the old days of University,...

Party of Three

How do you like my sweet new shirt? @fitnfresh made this for me, make sure to check out her website for more awesome designs! www.fitnfreshgear.ca You know, I almost broke my own rule, thinking about cherry picking the WOD. I hate it. You have a full class, the WOD is posted and everyone bails. I almost did it, but only...

Fighting Till The End

Well everything seemed to be working when I finally pulled myself out of bed this morning, but it wasn’t at my normal time. After the 5KM post WOD, I figured I deserved a little bit of a ‘sleep-in’. I was a bit stiff, but other then what are starting to be normal aches and pains, I was tip top. Today...
