what are you waiting for

“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.” ― Babe Ruth

Today I caught a glimpse of the ACF Affiliate Team working. Working hard. Doing movements never dared to dream of. It’s pretty impressive. They’re like, really, really strong. I’m not going to say they make it look easy, but more, they make it look like they’ve truly earned what they are able to do. You can see the hard work, and it’s poetry. Proud to be affiliated with this group. They’re going to the Eastern Regionals. Proud to have them represent us. The more I do Crossfit, the more it becomes a part of who I am, the more I learn and grow, it’s never really occurred to me to take it to the next level to compete. There’s so much gained just in the day to day when hitting the WOD. I can’t imagine what it would be like to be immersed even more deeply. Perhaps that’s the beauty of the sport; you can take it, it can take you, as far as you want to go. There’s much for everyone at many different levels. You can be working out next to the top competitor in the tri-state region, doing the same movement, just scaled to your ability. It’s your stop along the way. You choose. There’s room for everyone. What are you waiting for.

Partner WOD again today. Outside on a gloriously sunny 70 degree day.

Warm-Up:

Burgener Warm-Up

WOD:

I. AMRAP in 25 Minutes with Partner:

Hang Power Snatches (75/55)

10 Overhead Lunges with the same weight

Run 200m

*Only 1 athlete moving at a time

Completed: 7 Rounds at 45lbs. Almost RX! Again, the partner WOD, not sure I would have been courageous enough to enter the arena with 45lbs. for the overhead lunges. But, let go of the reins and let my partner pick the weight, thinking I would give it my best. And it turned out just as it should. Felt great.

II. 4 Sets:

20 AbMat Situps

III. 3 minutes Couch Stretch each leg

Completed.
