― Steve Maraboli

Funny day today, people. In the triple-wide. The WOD called for 4 minutes of rest between rounds. Picture a room full of people sweating and grunting and doing pull-ups and wall balls and deadlifting hundreds of pounds.

And then stopping to chat.

Honestly. Only in the triple-wide. Felt fail coming on during the last round. Deadlift was getting weak, wasn’t sure about the last reps. But, made it happen.

WOD:

I. 6 Sets:

6 Deadlifts (as heavy as possible, unbroken)

12 Chest-to-Bar Pullups

18 Wall Balls (20/14)

*Rest 4 Minutes Between Sets

Completed: Deadlifts @ 165lbs. Pullups still scaled to ringrows, but getting deeper and closer to the ground every day. Wall Balls at RX at 14lbs. Somethings we can do at RX, somethings we can’t. C’est la vie. Much like in life.

II. Accumulate 3 minutes in FLR

Post script on my last post. This blog is here to focus on living a positive life. To let the happy thoughts flow as they often do when walking out the doors, post-WOD, of my beloved CF. Crossfit helps me process my thoughts by forcing me to stop thinking. It assists me to cease and desist obsessing.

CF forces my mind out of its cyclical worrying and says, Just lift that heavy thing there in front of you and get through the next set of reps. Damnit.

Since the post from yesterday I have begun to piece back together the bridge to my friend. She has done the same. With each step closer, the gap closes exponentially. Her effort increases my effort, increases her effort. Will we meet on that same old patch of ground that we’ve enjoyed together for so long? I doubt it. But maybe we’ll find some new patch of green grass that will surprise us. That we can both enjoy together again. That will enable her, or me, or both of us to live as we want to live.

To be who we are now.
