S.E.R.E. Urban Challenge – New York City Weekend – How Fast Can You Pack?

Posted on March 7, 2013

Something I didn’t know 36 hours ago – I am taking off to NYC in a couple of hours to participate in S.E.R.E. Performance Urban Challenge. Talk about spontaneity. 🙂 A member on a friend’s team could not make it, and they really needed another insane individual to join them. Enter Solo. 🙂 S.E.R.E. stands

What’s Another Three Miles, And How 17-Year Olds Introduce Themselves

Posted on February 27, 2013

… when you are directionally challenged. Yes, a scheduled run yesterday was an 8km tempo, which turned into a 12.7km slog against a brutal wind. Only yours truly can “accidentally” run an extra 5km or so, by turning onto a street that seemingly goes in the same direction where I need to go, and then

Told you - I genetically CANNOT stick to any sort of a program.

Sleep Deprivation Blows

Posted on February 25, 2013

Last week was an interesting self-experiment in sleep deprivation. After getting up before 6am for 4 days in a row, I finally crashed on Wednesday night and slept for ten hours straight. The hot yoga on a Wednesday night was amusing, to say the least. I’d fall asleep in every single horizontal pose – face

Life Is Too Short, And A Week Of Workouts

Posted on February 11, 2013

Have you ever been stuck in traffic, and thought “ugh… life is too short for this”? I started writing this post in my head, during one of those lovely bumper-to-bumper afternoons… life is too short… to be stuck in traffic to work through lunch to drive automatic transmission to watch sports to take the elevator

Splash, Splash… Swimming Lesson, And Edamame Stir Fry Recipe

Posted on January 31, 2013

Guess what is the one thing you really (really!) don’t want to do after you’ve been stuck in traffic for over an hour in a snow storm, hungry, on your way from work? Come home, change, eat, take your gym bag and go for a swim lesson. Yeah. Seriously. Getting wet was the LAST thing

[…] haven’t been swimming since my ill-fated swimming lessons in the winter. And yes, getting in the pool in the summer is indefinitely easier. The pool is […]

Bad Idea, Wrist Injury, And Training Like An Athlete

Posted on January 28, 2013

When I was little, and dad would run a yellow light, he’d always say that he was showing us “what not to do”. Here’s the thing. It’s usually a bad idea to show others what not to do. Because, you know… You are not supposed to do it. Anyway… I sprained my wrist in my

I’ve Never Been Good At Cleaning… Until Now

Posted on January 23, 2013

Is there any upside to crawling out of your warm bed at 6am, getting into a freezing car that barely starts, gloomily staring at the thermometer that indicates -23C, and driving to CrossFit? Yes. The fact that very few people choose to do that. So few in fact that you may end up with a

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

What A Typical Week Of Workouts Looks Like For Me

Posted on December 10, 2012

I received few comments regarding the posted workouts during peak week. “Oh my god”, someone said. “There is no way I could spend over 2 hours in the gym”. Umm… yeah. Me neither. The peak week workouts were just that – PEAK week. Three brutal high-rep multi-set workouts back to back designed to deplete your
