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...

When You Have Nothing Left

I’m OK, thumbs up… Wednesday (August 19) – Here’s a question for you as you read this. How do you push yourself to keep going when you really don’t want to? Now some people use competition to drive them, others just try and keep up to the person in front of them. I ask, because I am really interested in...

Getting Chased

Gently Glistening… Monday (August 17) – so I was pretty discouraged after the little bit of a setback I had on Friday night, but the key to success (life, health, fitness or whatever) is to learn and apply that knowledge. I was exhausted. I had not been eating properly between WODs, my hydration was off and I had not been...

Finally Hit The Wall

@SarahBassels is BACK!!! Friday (August 14) – Yup, there it is folks, the Wall. That famous obstacle that taunts, “don’t go to hard or you will run face first into me”.

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...

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....

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...
