training miles

This seemed like a good WOD to kick off training again. For one, I could do it RX, even if it would be a slog. Also, the running portion could be a partner WOD, and I have the best partner of all! He has floppy ears and yellow eyes and keeps a pretty steady pace … Continue reading training miles


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

Cause I'm all about the gear. So glad I took the plunge because I simply wuv it. It gives me heart rate … Continue reading 5K Saturday

The final 5K of the week. end.

This morning came wicked quick. 6:03am on a Sunday morning after getting up early yesterday for a rainy Friehofer's Run was not easy. I'll admit, if this wasn't for work, not sure I would have made it. But soon as some of our best volunteers and friends started arriving, smiling their most welcoming and warmest … Continue reading The final 5K of the week. end.

the drone of the engine

Work is so busy these days. Our team has gone from 5 to 2. And we are coming upon our busiest time of year. Feel like the second to last man standing at the Okay Corral and out of ammunition. It gets so busy, so many requests coming and going, so many different moving parts, … Continue reading the drone of the engine

Change is a part of life. Everything changes, we all know this. Jobs, homes, friends, likes, dislikes, shoes, ideally your underwear, priorities. Priorities in particular. Mine have changed. I'm tired tonight. So, I'll try to make this quick. I'm tired because I hit the WOD today, and was not feeling it from the moment I … Continue reading priorities
