You Make Friends with Salad

6am Class with our victory SALAD!! Wednesday (June 18) – It’s amazing what people will do to get some spinach. Wait, what? That’s right, the original Mamma Bear (@katieandrian) put the offer on the Facebook last night. With her green thumbs she had a plethora of spinach and lettuce and offered bags up to the 6am class. Heck yeah I’m...

Sometimes You Don’t Win

Monday Tuesday (May 19) – Well it sure did feel like a Monday, especially after all the things that were going on. Now the title doesn’t sound like one of those happy ones and you would be right. Sometimes you just can’t win the fight, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t try. One of the greatest things @CrossFitCanuck (and...

Warranty Claim

Something is missing… Wednesday (May 6) – I don’t know what the heck is going on here, but I don’t think that my parents purchased the extended warranty when I was born. Literally the last few weeks, I am not recovering and things are starting to break. OK, break is extreme, but it seems things just are not coming back...

I Do Like Routine

Aftermath Wednesday (March 18) – Twice in a week? Two days back-to-back? Such a thing hasn’t happened for a really long time (too long really), but it’s nice to have a routine (even if it’s a tiny one). If you haven’t figured it out by now, I like a schedule. When I first started @CrossFitCanuck I was there every Mon,...

Promises Made. Promises Kept

. @matt_5577 and I crossing another goal off the list… Saturday (Nov 30) – Flash back to early 2014. Tavia asked us to write down our goals on the board as we walk into @CrossFitCanuck. Every time you walk in, you see what you have put down and hopefully you work towards meeting and exceeding those goals. As I sat...

Getting My Picture Took

Now before we get to the excitement of laying in a steel pipe being bombarded by electromagnetic radiation (and no, I did not get superpowers… sad face) we had an adventurous day @CrossFitCanuck.  Now I was FINALLY feeling better after a longer then usual recovery time (my legs just didn’t bounce back after Monday) and I was just getting started...

Screw You Gravity…

The bonus of being a ‘big dude’ for nearly all my life is that I own a set of legs that can push a whole bushel full of weight (especially if I don’t have to venture to the realm below 90 degrees). The drawback is that until I started @CrossFitCanuck, upper body strength was never really important. Don’t get me...
