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 for two learning conferences (nice of them to schedule them on the same day downtown) and Konica/Minolta and Rogers gave me lots to think about. Gracias to both for having me (and for the swag for attending)…
So how’s your August Challenge going? It’s a pretty easy one. 5 minutes a day stretching or taking care of your body with a goal of doing it a least 25 of the 31 days in August. So far I’m 8 of 11. How are you doing?
This week has been a tough one. Not so much training wise, but body wise. I’m sure I’ve said it before and that everyone who trains runs into this at some point. This isn’t a recovery issue (bouncing back from a workout), but old injuries rearing their ugly heads to make things challenging. After the high speed workouts from @ajhughes77 my knees and hips have been a little tender and for some odd reason my right shoulder (I think this is a sleeping issue). When I say I think it was a sleeping issue, it was until Thursday. I was working through @Eastbound_Power’s Week 2 and I was having tenderness on the Bench. Not pain, just tenderness. Then as I started to warm up the Shoulder Press, it went from tender to supernova and I had full failure getting the bar overhead @65lbs. Brutal. Time for Little. Yellow. Different. We’ll see if some Motrin can calm this thing down…
Now since I’m going to go for a long run Sunday morning before the Eastbound Power Summer Classic Powerlifting Meet @CrossFitCanuck, I was limited in what I could work on during my solo gym time on Friday night. I ended up going for a 100 calorie Row (which works out to 1500m) and a weighted 800m Run. I also managed a little bit of rolling out and stretching before Canuck Lite. It wasn’t much, but work is still work when you boil it down.
This is HILARIOUS!
Closing up I have a big thank you to pass along to Spanky and Marnie. Thank you for having me stand up with you in December. We’re so excited!
Have a great weekend!
