That’s right, I’ve been at a loss for creativity in the form of random ramblings to share. Not that I haven’t been busy. Lots of crossfit awesome, as always. Went to Buffalo for a little cross-boarder shopping on the weekend with a friend. Also went to an alumni hockey game with my ex-NHL playing uncle on Sunday. Plus, my store is finally starting to see some of the early Christmas shopper action. Good times 🙂
I think I have a new favorite. The bear complex. LOVE. It just flows nicely 🙂 Of course, with a really heavy load I may not have the same opinion… Last week it was thrown in a partner WOD with 5km rowing and rope climbs (boo) and ever since I’ve practiced it a few times in between working on stuff I’m less than in love with just to keep it real.
Today, one of my previous fav. moves kicked me in the butt. Death by hang cleans. Say what?! But… WHY? 😦 I like hang cleans. Or at least, I did… until round 11 when I couldn’t get the bar up on several attempts. Sigh. :-p Yesterday I realized I’ve been slacking on my double unders practice too. A 6 minute AMRAP of 20 wall balls, 40 double unders sucked even more when doing as 120 singles. My calves are still angry.
It’s pretty much official now. I’m DONE with shoes. Been wearing my Birks pretty much everywhere for the last week or more, except crossfit and ball hockey. Just can’t see chasing the little orange ball or box-jumping in slip on shoes as a practical option. Actually, truth be told, I’ve often resorted to socks alone. Right now I have one shoe on… that’s progress.
Glorious food… Squash season is pretty much done and I’m not sure what I’m going to use to fill the void once it’s all gone. Time for a little creativity I guess 🙂 But not just yet…
