Still. Alive.

Last week was Crossfit hell. We completed the CF Games workouts, well, some of them. The sad part is, I was so tired, but I could only imagine how the competitors felt after doing what I did in a week in just a few days. Crazy CF'ers. On a good note, I completed everything without scaling. I just need to work on my times and ability to lift heavy things pretty darn quickly. I'm getting there.

I'm still training for the Xterra Lory Triathlon too. I'm not training as much as I'd like to, but as much as my body can give. I put rest and recovery on the priority list, so we'll see what some high intensity, technical practices can do coupled with a well rested body. Hopefully it can find that happy spot and I won't suffer from missing out on the "do more work" aspect of endurance training. Seeing as the Xterra tri is a sprint and the base I had built was for an Olympic distance, I think I'll be ok. Besides, it's for fun right?

Dear Natural Hair, Let Me Explain...

However, my mid-day hair brushing friends and I work at the same place and I get to sit by and watch them deal with their tangles johnny on the spot. I. I have to wait until I get home and can tame the beast of tangles by creating an entirely different beast. Such is my hair.
I’ve learned to love my hair.  After years of trying to hide the curls with relaxers, fancy products, and buns – I have learned. 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 Crossfit.com 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…
