Fitness Friday #22

**It’s Friday night and this post was written so I’m publishing it but today there is no link up. Next week I will explain the course that my day took in more detail. For now, I ask you all to have a safe weekend.**

I must admit something. Not like yesterday’s confession, but rather something I was feeling the other day. We were at our event at CrossFit Magic Valley in Idaho and the community was awesome but inside I wasn’t feeling so great.

It was one of those moments where I was extremely frustrated with my fitness. It’s hard to look at the goals I’ve placed in front of myself and not feel like I’m going backwards when the weight I can do in a WOD isn’t improving or skills I’d worked hard to get, I no longer can. So as I stared at the wall wishing ever so much to do that handstand and it just wasn’t coming, I wanted to cry. I could feel the tears welling in my eyes.

But what’s interesting is that while I may have lost some skill (which I know I’ll get back!), I’ve also gained others. While one week the handstand is hard, in that same week I’m completing double unders with greater ease and even stringing 5-6 of them together without breaking them up with singles.

Patience, Katie, patience.
