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...

Making Poor Decisions

The Cowlerie… Wednesday (December 7) – Have you ever had the chance to do what is right and instead done what was easy? Sure you have. So have I. We run into these decisions every day. Sounds serious? Sort of. I had the option to make solid decisions regarding food and instead of doing something smart, I did things that...

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...

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...

Warm-up The Biceps

TThhhrrruuuuussssstttteeeerrrrrssss…. Wednesday (October 7) – So remember that time when one of my goals was a body weight Bench Press? Well 2 things have happened, my body weight has gone north and my Bench Press has gone south. Not surprising because I have been lax on my WOD schedule, but it is still very upsetting. Sometimes you have to get...

Worth The Squeeze

Thinking the deep thoughts… Thursday (September 17) – Where have I been? Well it’s been a busy time in Toronto. Blue Jays, Maple Leafs and Photoshoots. Craziness right? Well the photos will be posted once we get them back (@SavannahJessie has given me exclusive posting rights!) so you will have to wait to see them. I wanted to talk about...

Appreciate

Appreciate your people… Wednesday (August 26) – Now if you’ve been following along over the course of the years, you know that I’m not a ‘sharer’. Don’t get me wrong, I am more then happy to share my toys with you (as long as you take care of them), but feelings and such, I still have a hard time. I’ve...

What About The Running

Post WOD Crazy Eyes… Wednesday (August 12) – So I mentioned that @savannahjessie challenged me to a Century Challenge on Nike Running and to date I have absolutely sh*t the bed. Unlike the last two years where I was training for the Scotiabank Waterfront Half Marathon, this year I have been avoiding the pavement. Actually that’s harsh, I have increased...
