What Makes Hard Work?

Posted by piphunt on November 1, 2011 in Adventures of Pip

Are you really working hard? Can you work harder? Why are you answering me if you’re working your hardest? As a trainer, I am constantly reminded that many people come to Crossfit not knowing how to work hard. It can by intimidating; you don’t want to lift heavy, sprint hard,  or work at 100% for three minutes […]

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 […]

21 Things That Make Life Awesome

Posted by piphunt on July 26, 2011 in Adventures of Pip

1. Cooking – Ooo the kitchen. I head there to calm down, relax, and create. O, and to feed myself something delicious and nutritious.   2. Books – Sometimes nothing sounds better than curling up with a good book. Whether I’m inside with a cup of tea, or sitting in the sunshine with a bottle […]

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 […]

Getting a Little Creative

Posted by piphunt on August 26, 2010 in Fitness

I love to travel. I love to pick up, and leave the familiar behind. But there is also a part of me that loves routine. My morning routine of eggs, tea, and reading, my (almost) daily ride down to SLC Crossfit , and the total control I have of eating whatever I have that comes […]

Food for thought…. or for your tummy!

Posted by piphunt on February 4, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness, The Little Chef

As an athlete, eating is something I can’t ignore. It’s a balance between eating healthy, eating on the go, and getting enough calories. I’m also gluten intolerant, which makes eating on the go a little bit more tricky. Recently, my newest sponsor, SLC Crossfit told me about Fitday.com , an easy to use website that […]

A New Kind of Challenge (kind of)

Posted by piphunt on September 11, 2009 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

I’ve decided to ride the 12-hours of Sundance this Saturday; a 12 hour mountain bike that you can either ride solo, as a team of two or a team of four. My new roomie Ana and I decided that we would take a whack at it, essentially “off the couch”. Ok, so maybe not directly […]
