Three Things Thursday!

Happy Thursday!

Hope your week is going well, mine has been crazy busy! Here’s what’s up:

1. I’m running again! Each month I give my classes a fitness related challenge and this months challenge is RUN STREAK – run everyday in May. The timing of this challenge is perfect, its gotten me out and running everyday and I’m loving it! Most days I’m not running very far – averaging about 4k a day, but at least I’m out there!


2. It’s that time of year again! I’m back at Brock University for 3 days helping run the OFSAA Coaching Symposium Conference. It’s a bi-annual conference for high school teacher coaches offering a variety of workshops and active sessions focusing on the technical side of coaching and providing sport-specific skills, drills and strategies.


If you’re a high school Health and Physical Education teacher and looking for some great coaching tips in a variety of sports and activities, check out the link and consider coming to our 2015 conference!

3. As I mentioned before, I was at a subject specific (Health and Physical Education) PD workshop on Monday and it was fantastic! I though I’d share with you one if the CrossFit workouts we did in one of the sessions.

Don’t Drop It!

Objective – in partners/teams- complete the following WOD with fastest time, however reps can only be accumulated while one person is holding a 65/85lb bar overhead, arms and ears in same plane.

50 double unders
30 laps of med ball carries (30 lb med ball)
50 burpee plate jumps
10 Handstands – hold for 10 seconds
30 single unders – 2 people in rope

Teams must complete all reps of one movement before moving on to the next. Any team member can rep out a movement and teammates can change up whenever they want. However, only one person can be working at a time. Reps don’t count when arms are no longer in same plane as ears. Officials must communicate well with each other to make this work – make sure someone LOUD is judging the bar!

Penalties – 5 sec
– dropping/picking up ball before feet get on plate during runs
– every other infraction – NO REP!!

Well, that’s it for today! I’m off to the conference dinner and social! Have a great night!

  1. Hi Erin just wanted to say that I have been reading your blog lately and I love your info and the way you explain things – I love running as well, I take it as my me time in the mornings and it fuels me up for the day and I am also planning to start training for Marathons here in the Miami, Fl area.

    Also how do you so naturaly write….I love writing as well, but my fear of weather the reader is going to like it makes me erase what I write over and over. LOL…

    • Thanks Katherinn! I’m glad you’re enjoying my blog!

      Funny you say this, I’m totally not a writer at all, and when I first started, I worried about how everything sounded and wrote and erased, wrote and erased all the time! Some posts took me hours to write and some even days!

      Eventually I just decided it really didn’t matter, I write my blog for fun, and if people read and like it, that’s awesome, and if they don’t, oh well!

      I say, just go for it! Have fun and enjoy it!

      Happy running! I look forward to reading all about your adventures!
