    I need to get better at doubles for the Mayhem. I kept a few things on top of mind. Keep body straight, relax shoulders, quick wrists, and the second you lose sight of your hands in front of you, bring your arms in! Seemed to help.

    Great job 6amers!

  4. QOD: Nobody famous per se, but I think it’s cool that I talked to Joe Nieuwendyk’s dad when I was doing internet support for Sympatico. πŸ™‚

    Other than that… I consider the elite CrossFitters somewhat famous, and I had a few bunch of them teaching me at my L1 cert in Toronto – Austin Malleolo being my fav. πŸ™‚

  5. I ran into Kiefer Sutherland after watching him in “The Glass Menagerie” in TO when I was in high school. Like, right into him. I collided with him coming around a corner because I wasn’t looking where I was going. Then I felt so stupid that I ran in the other direction.

    Strength: Back Squat x 5
    # – 45, 105, 105, 105, 115, 115

    Thanks for sharing the bar, Maria, and thanks for the push to do 115#!

    15 KBS # 35
    20 Lunges

    Score: 5 rounds plus 30 DUs

    Lunges are not my thing…and I swear kettlebells are heavier in the morning. Still a pretty fun workout.

  6. QOD: Stuart McLean. I was working at a tourist office in the little town of Brighton, Ontario and was just about to close for the day. Stuart and his assisstant had been boating down from Kingston and stopped by for some directions and ideas about what they could see/do in the next few small towns over. I didn’t even recognize him at first and when we introduced ourselves I think he was surprised that I didn’t have a reaction. Afterwards, when I put two-and-two together I felt like a complete idiot. NIce guy though and he sounds the same in real life as he does on the radio.

  7. QOD: When I worked at Fairmont reservations, Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live- Mary Katherine Gallagher!) called to book a room for herself at the Plaza in NY. That was pretty cool. And I did get to meet Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet at my cert, that was awesome!

    1. ‘Maria Maria omg omg is that Camille? OMG that’s Camille!’ … so starstruck lol!! Fun times πŸ™‚

  8. Mob + WUx2
    Strength back squats
    worked up to 110# and that still felt fine but on the 3rd rep of 5th set I felt something pull/hurt in my back so stopped it there. πŸ™ Didn’t want to make it worse so didn’t do the WOD. Took some advil instead. lol

  9. QOD: I got to meet Pitbull, Mike Holmes (didn’t know who he was), arcade fire, nickelback and a bunch I don’t remember!! But definitely my favorite has been Pierce Brosnan!! I felt like a bond girl hahaha!! Sorry Trent but no one has said my name the way he did :)!!

    QOD: As Patrick already mentioned, Bob Barker would be my answer.

  19. QOD – The first famous person I ever met was a professional wrestler named Lex Luger in the summer of 93. I met some UFC fighters during the fan expo and the 2 that I remember the most were Dan Hardy and Joe Lauzon cause they were super friendly. And, similar to Heather and running into Keifer Sutherland, I ran into Shane Carwin at the same expo and fell flat on my ass. I turned around from buying a shirt and he was right there, I fell and he didn’t move…..

    1. Joe Lauzon? Now I’m jealous πŸ˜› I love UFC!! I like the heavy hitters but one of my favourite fights of all time was two lightweights. Clay Guida vs Roger Huerta. Really great fight!

  20. Please cancel CAM and I, CAM has unexpected work commitments and we won’t be able to make it in time. Sorry for late notice πŸ™

  24. Front squats:

    5x 100
    5x 100
    That wasn’t very smart but oh well, I got some squats in. Good way to end the week. πŸ™‚

    Then, I did the wod. And I decided to try triple unders. They were uuuuugly but whatever. Got them done.

    So, I did it RX, and got 2 rounds + 8 kbs. I new I’d get a low score but I wanted to try the triples. And I knew I’d still be really gassed – was I ever. Good workout. I had a hard time getting up off the floor after. πŸ™‚
