I was looking back at some of my old blog posts and I stumbled across one that bears repeating...
One of the most common things I've seen during my time CrossFitting and coaching has been the propensity for little things to derail people's journeys toward fitness. Small injuries, busy work schedules, family issues, or relationship strife are all reasons one might stop paying attention to their fitness... but they usually aren't good reasons. We've talked about excuses and the fact that your fitness at CrossFit 818 consists of just a few total hours of week. Each of you have made a commitment to yourselves to show up and not quit, so don't let anything get in the way of that!
Have a minor injury? Work around it. We pride ourselves on being generalists, maximizing our capacity over ten components of fitness. But sometimes, in order to stay on track, you have to become a specialist.
Busy work schedule? I empathize, but CrossFit 818 has classes 7 days a week, so you have no excuses! Get in here and get your work done.
Family issues or relationship strife? Nothing better to clear your head and give you a shot of endorphins than a butt-kicking CrossFit WoD.
The bottom line: don't allow the small things get in the way of reaching any of your goals!
Don't forget: this Wednesday we add a class to the schedule and all classes start on the hour (4pm, 5pm, 6pm, 7pm, and 8pm)!
10 rounds for time:
10 Kettlebell Swings (70/53)
5 Burpee Broad Jumps (6 feet min/4 feet min)
