Life is a long journey rife with both successes and failures that takes place over the course of decades. Our course is punctuated by meaningful events that shape who we are today and who we will become in the future. Sometimes, I find myself getting stuck in the rut known as the daily grind - wake up, go to work, sleep, repeat. At times it is difficult to avoid this because life happens at a frenetic pace and very rarely can you predict exactly what lies ahead despite your best effort planning. The problem with this is that we stand to lose days, months or even years from the calendar in the blink of an eye without actually experiencing life. Seeking new experiences on a regular basis is a valuable tool for breaking out of habit and ensuring that you're living your life to the fullest. The thing that I enjoy about CrossFit is the intentional absence of routine - no two days are alike, every workout can be viewed as a new adventure. In addition to this, the high intensity aspect reminds you just how alive you really are at the end of a workout when you are gasping for air and trying to slow down your heart rate. What do you do to avoid routine and remind yourself that you're alive?
