It’s Fun To Get Dirty

The tires be dirty… Welcome to May! Can you believe it’s the first long weekend of the summer already and that you haven’t heard from Me in like 3 weeks, but I haven’t been idle. Finding the time to squeeze everything in has been the issue here. Seriously though, you can only complain about time (or lack thereof) for so...

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...

Mish Mash of Things

My week has looked like this plate… A mish mash of everything Friday (August 28) – Rest days. You need ‘em. Terrible grammar and sentence structure? Yes, but truth comes in many forms. This has been a big week (training wise) and I didn’t give my body enough time to settle before throwing it back into the octagon (MMA term...

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”. Sure there are lots of things in life we have to fight through, but sometimes we have to listen when the body says stop now or its Netflix and...

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....

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...

Top of the Heap

Living Dangerously, But Can’t Breathe Face Down Monday (July 6) – Well I am certainly feeling Saturday’s 40K when the alarm went off at 430am. Yeah, you read that right. Today was my first class teaching the 6am and 7am classes and as a result the super early wake up. My quads and hips were very tight and my eyes...
