It takes time to build a gym in your garage. Bit by bit over time, you collect the necessary gear. Most times you improvise. The movements in the WOD dictate, and you get creative to make whatever’s available work for you. Sometimes you splurge, but most times you just make due. When I finally did … Continue reading back in the groove, groovy

Why are front squats so scary? Seriously. I dread them. Not the most graceful movement for tall people, at least not me for anyway. Tonight's workout started with a 1.5-mile warmup run with the dog, half of the running sandwich; even if it is muggy out there and bugs fly in my eyes and nip … Continue reading the dreaded front squat

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
