Kind of a Big Deal

A very Happy 5th Birthday to CrossFit Canuck!   August 8, 2009. What’s significant about this date? Not too much really, it was just the first time I posted to Blogger about starting my fitness journey. The post was called ‘Getting Ready’ (click to read) and it basically gave a little bit of a background of who I was and...

You Need a Minute

What was left after finishing… Monday (November 30) – It’s always great when someone throws down a challenge and getting two at the same time is twice as nice. Friendly (and sometimes not) competition drives us to push just a little bit harder sometimes and strive to be a little bit better. Sound weird? It’s not; think about every math...

Finish… Just Finish.

Tuesday (October 27) – REGULAR CLASS! What? Really? After the solo Saturday and a nice walk around the Hill with @SavannahJessie, Tuesday was WOD time! I got a chance to pop into the 530pm class to hit the never-ending chipper that Tavia cooked up for us. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to go RX, especially with the shoulder...

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...

Appreciate

Appreciate your people… Wednesday (August 26) – Now if you’ve been following along over the course of the years, you know that I’m not a ‘sharer’. Don’t get me wrong, I am more then happy to share my toys with you (as long as you take care of them), but feelings and such, I still have a hard time. I’ve...

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...

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...

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....
