Greetings from the garage. Yesterday the CFHQ WOD was swim 1,000 meters (1,094 yards) for time. 1,000 meters equals approx. .6 miles, or around 20 laps in a 25 yard pool. Either way, I do not have immediate access to a pool, nor will I anytime soon, so instead of swimming on Sunday I ran … Continue reading Monday

The second inaugural DCCF WOD is in the books. Per HQ: Hang squat clean 3-3-3-3-3-3-3 reps Scaling The hang squat clean is a good opportunity to practice full hip and leg extension, and speed under the bar. Ideally, each set will be as heavy as possible for 3 reps, but newer athletes should start light … Continue reading 2nd Inaugural
Sometimes it's exhausting to think about—having to start over every single day. Like, can't I just keep building on the momentum I created today and carry it over into tomorrow and the day after tomorrow? Sometimes we're grateful for the reboot, not every day is good and we look forward to another start. Sometimes, for … Continue reading Every Day, Begin Again
Today's WOD, run 5,000 meters. 5,000 meters = 3.1 miles. So, pretty much, 5,000 meters is a 5K. Like the kind of 5K you sign up to run for charity on a Saturday Morning. Yes, I had to look it up. It was written in a format that I did not recognize, "5,000 meters" as … Continue reading 5,000 meters = 5K
So, I admit it, almost daily I log onto CFHQ website and check out the WOD of the day. I take a look just about every day. Yet, I do nothing. I spend time reading through the scaling options, and then I theorize how I would do the workout, if, you know, I was still … Continue reading i keep looking, but do nothing
Where the %#^! have you been, Spring?? Some people want to know. We've been waiting up all night for you, waiting in the dark, snow-covered landscape, waiting... for you, spring. But alas, you are here, and it's glorious! We knew it would be. Take a walk or a drive down the street and people are … Continue reading Hello spring
It's been almost 6 months since the last Fast. After a decadent couple weeks of wine and pizza sprinkled with the occasional row on the erg, I woke up on Sunday morning with a foggy mind and swollen joints and general overall feeling of melancholy. I'm pretty sure I'm head over heels in a serious … Continue reading Day 4 of Fast reboot
BP: 153/93. Monday morning. Time to put away the blue chips and salsa and guac and pizza. The Super Bowl is over. The holidays are over. Time to consider hypertension. Time to take it seriously. Risk of stroke? How is that even possible. My numbers have always, always been so healthy. Apparently not anymore. I … Continue reading how serious is it
