So today is probably the best day I've had in a month. I was not last! Now, for the most part, that sounds awful. What kind of goal is that, really? Not last? That's a far cry from my normal over-achieving self.
But today ladies and gentlemen, I managed to not be last, I wasn't even second to last. When you see the athletes I train with, you will jump for joy for me. It has become some what of an expectation, that I just aim to do the work out. I don't look at the clock. I don't really care that people are out on their 3rd round and I just started my 2nd. I'm in my own little sweaty world, but today, wow, what a feeling.
I rowed 400 meters and did 50 squats - 4 times. As soon as I saw the work out I instantly knew what my blog post was going to be "200 squats - WTF?!" That's before I came in "not last" and that was even a bigger deal.
I feel like I'm rocking the work outs - in my own slow and steady way. What I really need to work to master is cutting the unnecessary processed carbs and fruits from my diet. Starting tomorrow, I'm embarking on a 30 day challenge to go without those things. To really eat cleanly and from the earth. I tried a few weeks ago, did well for a few days, and then I went back to my old ways. This time I need to succeed - I WILL succeed. But more on that later this week.
I can go to bed feeling very successful this evening. Thanks Crossfit!
