The Now

“True progress quietly and persistently moves along without notice.” ― St. Francis of Assisi

It’s been two days since hitting a WOD. Can you tell me why then it seems like so much longer?

There are so many benefits to CF for me, the least of which incredibly is the physical. These WOD’s are an opportunity to literally stop my brain’s non-stop train of thoughts and incessant processing. The WOD’s force me to focus on the absolute here and now. Instead of trying to plan and calculate every piece of my future, my job, my home, my finances, my family, everything… Ugh, exhausting.

When it’s 3,2,1, Go… the thought parade is brought to a halt and leveled back to zero and all I can see in front of me is the next move. That’s it. Oh the pure joy of the Now. What a blessing.

There are added benefits of course, primarily in the form of some new PR, some personal milestone reached not necessarily planned for except by the very act of simply showing up.

WOD:

I.  In 12 Minutes:

Establish a 1 Rep Max Press

Completed: 1RM of 75lbs. PR! At first I tried to add too much weight too fast, and failed. In slowing down and building in smaller increments I was able to build capacity and reach the PR.

II. “Angie”

For Time:

100 Pullups

100 Pushups

100 AbMat Situps

100 Air Squats
