This week I turned 29 years old. My birthday inevitably causes me to take a look back over the last year and put things into perspective. Did I reach my goals? Was this year better than the last? Would I have done things differently?
Well folks, I gotta say it’s been a pretty damn good year. I got married to an amazing woman. I have the best group of friends I’ve ever had. I have a year full of great memories with good people. A lot of these memories are with all of you.
My main goal this year has been to become a coach for two of the men I respect most at their profession, Z and Armen. I’ve recently been granted that privilege. Last May, Crossfit 818 started its coaching development series. I was lucky enough to be one of the original members of the program. Over the course of the year, we took turns teaching workouts, getting critiqued, and learning about movement. It took a lot of time and hard work, and it’s something I’m incredibly proud of. I’m still learning and I look forward to the challenge of continual growth. I’d really like to thank them and all of you for the opportunity. I’m really looking forward to the next year.
Did you reach your goals this year? Are you working towards them? Whether they’re health related, professional, or personnel, write them down somewhere and don’t stop until you reach them.
In case any of you are thinking about Birthday presents. I’ll give you a hint...
"Fight Gone Bad"
Three rounds of:
Sumo deadlift high-pull (75/55)
Box Jump (20" box)
In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of "rotate", the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
