Why Crossfit?

Posted by piphunt on January 27, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

If you’ve been following me over on Twitter, you may have noticed that I wrote a series about Crossfit for Skiers on Ski Magazines site.  The comments section is a continuous debate about the pros and cons of Crossfit, and the ability to use Crossfit to train specifically for skiing. It got me thinking about […]

Crossfit North Manly

Posted by piphunt on November 20, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Most places I visit you wouldn’t find a gym, let alone a crossfit affiliate. However, Manly is an exception. It’s just across the harbor from Sydney, and the lovely beaches, surf, and sailing are not the only things here keeping people active. Crossfit North Manly opened just a couple of months ago, which meant that […]

Weekday Sprints

Posted by piphunt on September 1, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Today we ran 6 200 meter sprints. Technically it was 8, but the first two were at 80%, so I didn’t count them. As I sprinted and recovered, sprinted and recovered, I came up with this little diddy. (You write poetry when you run sprints right?   1. Monday is slow to start and gasping […]

I can, I can, I can, I can, I can… (no thinking allowed)

Posted by piphunt on August 11, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Something strange happened on Friday night:  as I was laying in bed thinking about the race,  I suddenly realized that I had no idea how to prepare mentally. What was I meant to visualize?Running, and running, and running like the little engine that could? For the first time in a very long time, I was […]

Strength and Happiness

Posted by piphunt on August 4, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

I feel strong! Not “I just PR’ed on my back squat strong” or “I kicked butt in the WOD” strong, but indomitably strong. I feel like everything is finally coming together; I know what food my body needs to thrive, what it can tolerate in small doses, and what food I need to run from. I know […]

What’s in Your Food?

Posted by piphunt on June 17, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

It’s been a frustrating past year to say the least. As if eating gluten free wasn’t challenging enough, imagine your body starting to feel worse and worse, even though you thought you knew what was making you sick. I’ve battled with motivation, with change, and with wanting that change. At the end of the day, […]

Sleep Deprived and Caffeine Dependant

Posted by piphunt on June 6, 2011 in Fitness

I often feel exhausted, and frustrated by this exhaustion. Instead of taking a deep breath and taking a break, I often blame myself. What is the matter with me? Why can’t I keep up? Am I not eating the right foods? I believe that if I get the best possible nutrition I will be able […]

The Whole Grocer, A Whole New Experience in Shopping Gluten Free

Posted by piphunt on March 18, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness, skiing

One of my favorite things when I arrive in a new town is to check out the grocery store. Yes, I know, I just arrived in Jackson Hole, with the Tetons laid out before me and the infamous Cowboy bar waiting for me to get thirsty, but it’s the Whole Grocer that is calling my […]

While my posted workouts have been absent, the workouts definitely haven’t been! My class with Re Wikstrom and Hannah Whitney has been awesome; those girls have been working their butts off! I’m so proud of them! We’ve been skiing a little bit too. It’s awesome to put our training to the test (Even if our […]

Day one: Crossfit Dryland

Posted by piphunt on November 16, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Being strong is one of my biggest priorities. With strength, I have the confidence to ski bigger lines, walk out of gnarlier crashes, and stomp bigger airs. The stronger I am, the better I am. I believe the same is true for every skier. Crossfit is an effective way to get in shape for the upcoming […]
