I couldn't put the emphasis on it so it sounded like the recover military people are used to hearing when doing group calisthenics. Oh well. Yesterday was my oral defense for my dissertation. Everything is complete and I'm taking a couple days as a mental break.

Tomorrow I will start back up with swimmies. I actually miss swimmies :( But not as much as a miss free time that was taken up with way too many hobbies and school work. Now it's back to hobbies. With this newly found time on my hand, I'm thinking of throwing caution to the wind and picking up another activity. I did fencing awhile ago. Maybe I should try it again or maybe something new. Or maybe I should stick to training for this triathlon and not overdo the activities...nah. My new Crossfits gym is inside a climbing wall gym, I should just start climbing again. This is what happens when I have too much time on my hands.

Yes, I’m jealous of people who can ride in a car with the windows down and do nothing more than brush out the wildness. I still get angry when I brake a brush or pull bristles. That does not get in…

Look Better, Feel Better Week 7

anything = sexy?

Here's a picture from the December 16, 2010 WOD from the main site. It's a pretty picture, nice view. The comments to the picture were interesting. A majority of comments related to how pretty the lady was. Other comments wanted to know about the front view. There were also comments about how the picture was distasteful, unwanted, unnecessary. Some comments stated that lady in the picture wasn't what a "real" woman looked liked. Interesting.

I've heard claims that the Crossfit community, and others as well, is all about leveraging functionality and strength. Muscles are required to be strong. There is not much definition in the back of this girl. That was the root of some comments. She was stereotypically pretty and not Crossfit pretty. I understand. My first reaction to the people raving about the "Strong = Sexy" Life as Rx tee, what you really meant to say was "Anything without a top = sexy." Don't get the two confused b…
