I am *such* a fluffing softy, in a few ways. I've taken eons to write this post, because I've had the guiltiest pleasure of mindless TV on Netflix in the background - Freeform's Young & Hungry. It's so cheesy, asiago's got nothing on this show. Alas, here I am getting all excited when Gabi &… Continue reading AthletiKated: a Week in Workouts
Last week, I wrote the most pitiful 'training' log ever. It was an exercise for me to realize how stupid my excuses for not working out sounded to a third party. With a full 5-day work week in one location, I knew I had no excuses (even if happy hour plans came up, twice) for… Continue reading AthletiKated: a Week in Workouts
Three weeks in, and I'm still standing! While I still have a long way to go, the cobwebs are (sort of) shaking themselves out, and I'm working harder on getting the mind-leg connection going. This week's focus? No more sandbags for legs when running 400s at CrossFit. Do my best to get comfortable opening my… Continue reading #SeaKatyWheeze: Week 3 Recap
Raise your hand if you woke up this morning, opened up the curtains and muttered "whoa, sh*t" aloud as you saw winter storm Niko throwing a frozen hissy fit outside. Not calling it an 'alert' today, because with how unspectacular last week's upload was, I didn't even post an update. So, this week's summary is… Continue reading WMTM Roundup: 2/9/17 Edition
In attempt to get some of the market share lost to Nike's Metcon back, the official clothier of CrossFit is paying your way into the 2017 CrossFit Games Open if, and only if, you buy a new pair of the Reebok Nano 7 between now and the start of the Open. (Open registration fee: $20, shoes… Continue reading Nano Takes on the Metcon: 2017 Edition
I have less focus in me today than a sugar high toddler being let loose in a ball pit for the first time. Really. It's bad. Sorry bosses, I got next to nothing done at work today. My bad. 5 Faves & a Dud - 3/22/16 Upload Favorite #1: Run: Speed Short ($54) in rio night multi/black… Continue reading 5 Faves & a Dud: Catwoman Disapproves
Ready or not, the 2016 CrossFit Games Open is here. I've been a broken record saying how it's been a bananas few months for me at work, I prrrromise that nonsense will stop in the next couple of weeks. I haven't exactly been on my A game in the workout & nutrition department, either. Clearly I'm playing with… Continue reading CFG Open WOD 16.One & Done
I dropped the ball on covering ANY of the CrossFit Team Series. Whoops. Well, HQ is at it again with another auxiliary 'event' to run as comp season kicks off and regional wannabes begin to buckle down in their training. The Open always comes faster than progress seems to, so it's never too early to… Continue reading CFHQ + Rogue = We’ve got LIFTOFF
Back in July, CrossFit premiered 'Froning, the Fittest Man in History' just ahead of the 2015 Games. I was an idiot, messed the dates up and forgot to scoot my rear end over to the theater in Manhattan Beach to see if I could snag a ticket to the premiere screening. So close! I blame… Continue reading Happy Froning Friday!
