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...

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...

Sometimes Everything is a Challenge…

It hurt to move… Friday (August 7) – Everybody faces them, you know those little hurdles that life unexpectedly puts in your way in the hopes that you will pack it in and call it a day. The situations where You (as in Me) are expected to remain calm or things escalate (for those that know me, I live with...

Pushing The Weight

Goals… Wednesday (Aug 5) – Squishy. Not crispy do much, but squishy. My body is still trying to figure out what part of the country it’s in and I am just starting to feel the ache from yesterday’s insanity. My brain is foggy… bigtime. As I rolled out and greeted the World this morning, I was contemplating the running challenge....

I Forgot Rule #1… Again…

Headed Home Tuesday (Aug 4) – Rule #1, don’t go on vacation. Sound extreme? Yes, but it’s not the vacation, but the coming back from the vacation that is the hard part. Toosdays. Twosdays. Tuesdays. Right, Tuesday isn’t one of my normally scheduled classes @CrossFitCanuck, but after all the time ‘off’ it’s time to get back to work. Well no...

Sunday Without Wheels

After the madness… Z visible teaching in the back… Sunday (July 19) – Sunday? Not on the bike? Still sweating? You betcha! Today was meeting day. Once a month (ish) the @CrossFitCanuck Coaches meet to go over stuff, exchange ideas (new warm-ups, progressions and the like) and then we throw down. Now I don’t know if you have noticed, but...

You Are Playing With Fire

This is SERIOUS… Friday (July 17) – Don’t poke the Bear. Seems like simple and straight forward advice doesn’t it? Still some, let’s say, stupid people go out of their way to be mean and two-faced. It’s ok if you want to do it to me, go ahead, I’m a big boy. Don’t however pick on my people. It makes...

BA NA NA!!!!

Minions!!! Monday (July 10) – WOOHOO!! Now I missed a workout day on Friday (and a #CanuckLite as I will now be calling CrossFit Lite) due to truly terrible time management. On a happy note, this terrible scheduling error fell exactly on the opening night of the MINION MOVIE!!! You can keep all your geek, nerdlet, big kid comments to...
