LOTS

  Big Week? Well actually it was a big two weeks…   The training this week has been very interesting and not necessarily all good. What a miss mash of emotions. I’ve been actually able to attend CrossFit classes @CrossFitCanuck and participate like a regular person (well, one who has to modify a whole lot). I’ve been trying to work...

Something Shiny

An actual Emmy… Pretty sweet!   Something less shiny, but it is an interesting use for old kegs…   So one shiny that’s really pretty cool and then one which is a little bit less so (although an interesting repurposing). The Emmy was located at Cisco’s Learning Centre in the RBC building on Queens Quay. I was downtown on Wednesday...

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)....

Getting Mobile

The Supernova of Pain Monday (December 7) – Does anybody remember the other part of getting healthy? Not the eating or the activity (lifting, cycling, running or whatever else you do), but the component that is often forgotten. Mobility. Stretching. Rolling out. Smashing. Whatever it takes to get those sore muscles loosened up. Now mobility isn’t a naturally intuitive thing...

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...

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...

Fighting For It

Aftermath of the Fight Thursday (June 25) – As you follow this saga from P90X, to GoodLife to my home at @CrossFitCanuck, there have been ups and downs along the way. You have been sitting right beside me as I hit victories (My First Duathlon, The Half Marathon and when I competed in my first Open) and the inevitable setbacks...

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...
