Have A Muddy Weekend!

What are you up to this weekend? Any interesting plans for the summer? A group of us from CrossFit 310 will be running Tough Mudder up on Big Bear mountain tomorrow morning. I’m nervous yet excited at the same time. I’ve never done this kind of mileage on foot before (running or walking), so it’ll be pretty interesting to see how it all unfolds. I’m a little intimidated by the ice pool and the electric shock, but I know we’ll come out on top. Anyway, have a great weekend! Here are some posts from around the web . . .

Hello friends! What are your plans for this lovely weekend? This is the first weekend in 4 months that I don’t have homework! The semester finished on Wednesday – My professor skimmed over my research paper and told me I got an A in the class, so needless to say I’m feeling pretty weightless at the moment. PLUS, I’m really excited to be taking pictures tomorrow at CrossFit Redondo for their CrossFit for Hope fundraiser. I’ll post them next week. Anyway, have a great weekend and here are some posts from around the web . . . . . . .

Happy Friday guys! What are your plans for the weekend? I’m doggy / house sitting for my friends in Santa Monica. They have a rooftop patio, so you know I’ll be up there soaking up some sun. But before I indulge in pleasure, I have to finish fine-tuning my research paper that’s due Wednesday. If I get an A on it, I will continue with my 4.0 GPA. Note: This is the 1st semester in my college career that I didn’t have a total meltdown writing essays. I’m pretty proud of that, and I think I owe it to CrossFit! Anyway, I hope you all have a stellar weekend, and here are some posts from around the web . . . . . .

Is CrossFit a “trend” or will it become the standard? Personally, I think the latter.

What are you up to this weekend? So far, the weather report promises sun, which I absolutely NEED in my life right now! As for me, well, I’m at the tail end of the semester, so I’ll be knocking out more homework. Fortunately I read the book we’re doing our research paper on before school started, so I don’t have to scramble too much. I really want to WOD, but in addition to my hand injury (which seems to slowly be getting better, finally), it seems I’ve now injured my foot during double-unders! Holy cow, I can’t seem to catch a break lately. Maybe the Universe is trying to tell me something? Anyway, here are some posts from around the web….

What are you up to this weekend? I’ll be spending most of it cooped up in the casa working on a marketing plan & re-writing an essay I bombed (both for college). It’s supposed to be in the low to mid 80’s in SoCal, so I know plenty of friends who’ll be out at the beach playing volley, as well as some friends that are going to Coachella. I can assure you my jealousy will be contained. Meanwhile, here are some posts from around the web . . .

I’m sorry I haven’t really been writing. I’ve been dealing with a hand injury from 12.3 (which I’ll write about next week), as well as work, school and personal obligations. I promise to get back to it soon! In the meantime, I’m taking it easy for now, and doing cardio / endurance. This weekend I’m going wine tasting with a friend in Malibu, and then to a rooftop BBQ at another friend’s house in Santa Monica, finished by a birthday party for another friend in Hermosa Beach. All of that in one day! Phew! Then Sunday it’s back to business as usual. Here are some posts from around the web . . . . . .

Happiest Friday friends. The weather is supposed to be divine this weekend. Which means I’ll be drinking wine and laying on the beach. What will you be doing?
