Missing Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday’s WOD was disappointing.   Well, that’s really an understatement.  To be honest, I was pissed!

Pissed because I’m feeling the struggle and tug of war of desperately wanting to make it to CrossFit and making sure that when my son looks over to the sideline at football practice, that I’m sitting there encouraging him.  Next week will be different so I look forward to that.

On the bright side, I took a spin class on Monday (the first in nearly a year).   It tore me up and I enjoyed every minute of it!  The instructor, Judy, a fellow CrossFitter, from LivingWell CrossFit led a high intense and challenging class.  I may not have lifted weights or boxed jumped, but I work and I worked hard.

Now for today’s workout.  I arrived at the box early.  I sat in my car and watched this video.  The same video that I posted earlier today.   The video gave me just enough fire to walk in the door with a little sass and confidence that I would kick it out.

While fatigued and laying on the black top in the parking lot kissing a sandbag, I reminded myself of the message,  “Choose to be blind and do whatever it takes to see.”   The images of the athletes’ determination, drive and commitment, moved me to complete the WOD.

As I was saying my good byes and walking out the door, a classmate questioned, “You’re not staying for the rest of the workout?”  LOL!   Apparently, I didn’t see the Buy out at the end of the work out.    I laughed aloud, got my butt down on the floor and finished the workout.

I look forward to tomorrow’s workout.

Sweet dreams!

I’ll be straight up with you.

This workout was pure hell and kicked my butt!

Did I finish?  Nope!  I ran out of time on #27 of the 30 burpee wall balls.   I felt like I did them all.    LOL!  The jump tucks did me in.  LOL!  Some WODS you enjoy.  While others you hope to NEVER see again.  This WOD I can live without ever seeing or doing again.

Though the WOD was tough, just like any other day, when I glanced around the room and witness everyone pushing beyond their limits, the culmination of energy is inspiring.  I have to keep pushing.  Giving up is not an option.

Seriously, it’s late and I gotta stretch out…
