Due to unsafe working conditions I will be returning to Calgary for a few days and then heading back out with another company right away.
The last 2 weeksish has been pretty tough. It was damn cold when I got here...about minus 40 degrees Celcious, but has warmed up to -10. CrossFit has definitely prepared me for lots of shit. The feats of strength I have displayed in the last little while has had the guys asking me what it is I do at my gym. Although CrossFit is pretty good at preparing someone for the unknown and unknowable, I am still pretty beat up from going hard 12 hours a day. There is something that can be said for swinging a hammer, pulling a wrench and lifting heavy shit all day in regards to contributing to GPP.
I am going to a bigger rig, slower pace, safer and less frustrating. This industry is pretty dangerous as it is...I don't need to work on a rig that is prone for disaster. It will also alot me some more time off. The gym is getting busy!
