Well, just when I got all excited about an awesome workout and tons and tons of energy, I have a day like today. I felt like I needed to take a 3 hour nap the entire time, and, even after having a huge coffee I felt even more tired. I was able to get a ton of equipment from 1st String over to CrossFit San Mateo, I trained a good amount of people, I ran a few errands to get some supplies for this weekends competition and, I didn't workout.
So what happens when you just flat out don't make fitness a primary part of your day? Don't beat yourself up over it, and make tomorrow a better day. I have a slowly emerging fear that I have not taken my training very seriously leading up to the Sectionals this year. This led to a moment today where I realized I need to take this to an entirely new level if I actually want to be a competitive CrossFitter. I was reminded of how seriously I took baseball when I was training to get into college and then into pro ball. I remembered that nothing in the world would get in the way of what I had to do to get there. I realized that I WANTED it so badly that I would make sure I did at least one thing every day to make myself a better baseball player.
Now, with life totally different, with more responsibility, I find it a little tougher to be dedicated to just one thing. But I believe that i don't have to be to excel at it, AND, if I surround myself with all things supportive I can have all the things I love around me. I can dive headlong into whatever I chose to do in my life and have no fear because the people and things I have around me believe in my process.
So, there's my rant for today. I'll be back at it all tomorrow, more planning for the event, more working out, more stressing and more smiles. Wait, why will I have smiles, cheesy alert: because Lindsey's coming home!
Never Stop, GET FIT.
