“If one can stick to the training throughout the many long years, then will power is no longer a problem. It’s raining? That doesn’t matter. I am tired? That’s besides the point. It’s simply that I just have to.”
– Emil Zatopek
I see all too often that some people come in when they “like” the WOD for whatever reason; “these are good exercises for me”, “I don’t think I’ll suck at this one”, or “at least I can do this one” (any of those sound familiar?). The WOD represents many things but simply put it is the lifelong pursuit of fitness. There always has to be that next challenge, a new obstacle, a fear to face. Otherwise, there is no pursuit, and then what? The most fit in our box aren’t just the ones that do something everyday, they are the ones that learn something everyday, something about themselves, they learn what they can’t do!
