Here I am a full eleven months later and I’ve taken that break that I was talking about.
Where am I?
– Still loving the crossfit, though now in a smaller home gym
– Still loving the company, though in a smaller group with a different mission
– New missions, ever […]
Every now and then the stress of trying to do (whatever it is) what you’re doing will cause you to collapse. Whether that’s a simple failure of desire to proceed along the chosen path or a complete mental breakdown.

Considering the wisdom (so tired I nearly typed wiseness) of doing crossfit two days in a row for my first two days. But it all works out. It’s been quite some time since I’ve done some of these movements so I decided to do with with no weight with a bare bar. I’d call it […]
