Remember January’s Challenge? How did it go? Did you manage 100%? If you missed a day or two, did you say, “No point in continuing now?” Maybe one or two people did. But I bet the majority put the missed days behind them, didn’t dwell on them, and looked at the following day as a new start. It was a hiccup in a good process.

👁Keep a weather-eye out on social media for February’s Challenge 👀

There have been several posts on Facebook recently that can tenuously be linked together – age related. The latest, and I have to admit I laughed (I thought man-flu; sorry guys) was from a guy who weathered turning 40 and 50 OK but has had a meltdown at turning 55. Heaven help him when he turns 60. 😆  Another one was “I can’t believe how old people are at my age”. 

I am being very generalist here and understand that there are many other factors that come into play, but in my opinion a big component of how we feel about ourselves as we age is so much a ‘preconceived notion’, ie I’m now 55, 60 … so I am old and am unable to do things I could do yesterday when I was 54, 59.… (Think back to when you were 20; 60 was ancient, one foot in the grave.)

Granted, there are somethings we may not now be able to do, such as run a 4min mile, squat snatch 150# …. (in my dreams). BUT and this is the crux of the matter, we can still run. We can still squat snatch. And that is what CrossFit is about. It’s about making you move and pushing your limits just enough to prevent aging from robbing you of your abilities. 

So yes, there was a time when a 24” box jump was easy but just because you can no longer jump the 24”, does that mean you stop jumping? No, it mean you accept this fate and jump 20” that much quicker. 

It’s that one small change or readjustment that will keep you going. CrossFit is so much more than just a sport.


Congratulations to Wade Roth for his Age Group win and setting his own PR at the 2K Indoor Row Sprints last weekend.

This week’s food: Lamb Chops in Mustard Sauce with Roasted Tomatoes courtesy of PaleoGrubs

OK, I know my presentation of said dish isn’t quite up to PaleoGrubs standard but the food tasted just as good. I did think it was going to be a bit complicated to make but I managed quite well. I didn’t have chicken stock so used tomato juice instead; this along with the white wine vinegar made it very tart so I sweetened the sauce with some honey. 


This Week’s Trivia: Super Bowl Fun Facts and Trivia 

  • 8 million pounds of guacamole is consumed on Super Bowl Sunday
  • 14,500 tons of chips are eaten along with that guacamole
  • The Super Bowl is measured in Roman numerals because a football season runs over two calendar years

There’s lots more trivia out there.

Who is your choice? San Francisco 49ers or Kansas City Chiefs? Go Team!!!

Good luck to Anna and Paris; Sail Fast

Be safe.
