Fitness Friday #14

      1 Comment on Fitness Friday #14

It’s been a busy week. I guess that’s the normal now, isn’t it? I’ve spent the last 2 days in Vegas with events, RV issues and trying to find time to get things done and not totally stress out. Good luck, right? 😉


Anyway, this was the week of Open WOD 15.5…tire flips….rope climbs…double unders…and that was all one day! But I had so much fun and my body felt amazing!! I felt strong and I think all of the double under work was a really great warm-up for my body that I was just able to power through. Note to self, make sure you always take time to warm up…it’s SO important!

That’s a big thing that I’m reminding myself. I’m not great at everything…I’m not even good or kind of good at many things. And that can be hard, especially as a perfectionist but it’s something that I’m working on. I’m motivated to get those double unders, so I’m consistently practicing and they’re coming. I’m getting them more frequently and faster than the previous day’s practice. It’s something and I’ll take it. It’s also been great that I’ve been in so many boxes lately where I really mesh with the owners and coaches and they take that extra time to watch me and help me get there.

Don’t give up, my friends! If there’s one thing you take away from today, let that be it…don’t give up, just dig deep and reminder WHY you’re doing it and WHAT is motivating you and use THAT!

How were your workouts this past week?

What motivation do you need to push through?
