“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!

    Quit listening to my conversations with Ericca!  I have extremely valid excuses! (Yes, that is an oxymoron)

    Can’t wait to get back in the box! Sure miss it! And thanks for the reminder. I’ve been so guilty of avoiding when I thought I wouldn’t be good at it. See ya this week!

    That’s an awesome quote, J Dogg! I can’t w8 2 get back 2 business 2morrow…I’ll just b stretching but Praise the Lord I’ll b doing something!!! I’m not being boastful but I almost think I’m already at the point that quote speaks of where “I just have to.” Life is good!

    Todays WOD was awesome!! I had never done over head squats in a WOD before. before today I had only done O.H. squats once. Today even though I didnt use Rx weight (75lbs) it felt great to be able to have the strength and mobility to do the exercise in good form. CrossFit to me is about being better today than I was yesterday. Fitness is a way of life. Its not a journey for it has no destination.  Keep coming in keep pushing yourself and you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve.
