It’s december

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

And I have less than three months until my next Half Marathon. Time to get on that training bandwagon I suppose. Am not feeling overly enthused. Frankly, I would rather deadlift my bodyweight. (I deadlifted more than that last week! BOOYAH!) What’s wrong with me? I just need to get out there. Once I start […]

I just wanted to share that I have a bruise on my collarbone from lifting weights yesterday. I like to think it makes me look hard core.

Caveman cookies again

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Turns out if I have a recipe to follow I too can bake caveman cookies. Problem becomes if there are 2 similar recipes with conflicting times to leave things in the oven, waiting an average of the 2 times doesn’t necessarily work. So half are burned. Grumble.

Caveman Cookies

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

I have been eating like a caveman for the past little while, following the Paleo Diet. Today I came across a site that sells Caveman Cookies – OMG! A cookie that’s not a cheat! You can order them online (they don’t sell them in any Canadian stores yet – and they’re $$). But I’m a […]

That’s what time I start my Crossfit class. In any case, my Crossfit gym moved at the beginning of the month. Today, when I arrived at class, I noticed that there was a sign over the door. I told the instructor I liked the new sign. He looked at me like I was nuts (well, […]

It’s funny how despite working out very regularly, a new exercise can make me hurt oh so very much. Today my abs hurt so much that walking hurts. So does breathing. And when I sneezed, tears came to my eyes. GHD situps, I hate you. But I will continue to do them until I don’t […]

It’s contagious

Today my GPS is a Space Case* To get to Crossfit I like to use my Garmin. It’s in a new location, and it’s super early in the morning, so it’s going to take a few times of me being taken there by the GPS before I’m ready to drive there on auto pilot. This […]

It’s the little things

Friday, October 30th, 2009

Had a great start to my day this morning. Finally managed to get my alarm set properly which meant I headed over to Crossfit for a 7AM class. It’s a good thing I’ve been doing the workouts on my own this week – all of those Double Unders (skipping, but getting the rope under twice […]


Friday, October 9th, 2009

So today was the last day of bootcamp. We did the same workout that we did three weeks ago (the one I blogged about below). My time then: 9:44 My time today: 7:00 How’s that for an improvement, eh? I no longer felt the need to lie down and die during burpees!! Anyway, I’m hooked. […]

I’ve got 6 days of crossfit under my belt. I’ve learned how to squat a new way, do a proper deadlift, do a double under, and a number of other things. Our workouts are hard. Heck, our warm-ups are hard – they include dips on the rings, pull ups on bars (eventually to become kipping […]
