Tabata Sprints by 00badness at Garmin Connect - Details

It's all I could manage to give at 0-dark-thirty in the morning. Seriously, I hit the alarm. Rolled out of bed. Found the day's previous workout clothes...really, just what's still on the floor because I was too tired to put it up, got dressed. ROLLED down the stairs, out the door. Started my garmin before I was running. And what went through my mind?

-GOOOOOOO!!! WAKE UP!!!! or more like this...



It's a horrible way to wake up (the alarm and running). But when you know yourself and that you'll make excuses at any other time in the day, you must force a situation where you can't make excuses. It's too hot at lunch. I'm too tired after Crossfit. Well crap, if I slept at least 7 hrs, then an a.m. run it is. I've run enough to know early morning runs do not produce my best times. Until I can fight off other excuses, I push every miserable inch I can give in the dark of the morning and make the most out of the training I get.

Dear Natural Hair, Let Me Explain...

Sure, if I worked at a place where my brushed out hair was perceived as professional, maybe I could do that. 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…
