Falling Back in Love

with.....CROSSFIT! Did you think this was going to be some sappy emotional post about my personal life? Well its not! Fooled you guys. 

After turning down my regionals invitation I was unsure of where my fitness was and where I wanted it to be. Do I continue to workout with the team? Just on my own? I was lost there for a couple of weeks trying to figure out what my next step was. I found that working out on my own sucks, running sucks, everything just sucked. I then thought about what turned me on to crossfit in the first place:

  • its only 45 minutes
  • you can't do what you want, you do what is on the board
  • people all around you motivating you to keep going
  • the incredible feeling you have when you are done
  • discovering how competitive you are when someone passes you

All these things came to mind, and then I thought about where exactly do I find all of these? IN CLASS. So I am back where it all started in 2008 for me, in a class at CC. I am in Jeff's 1045 M/W/F and loving it.  I have more time to spend with family when I workout earlier. Its all working well. Its exactly what I needed to fall back in love with what has brought me so much joy/pain in the past four years. Class is awesome and I know I have made the right decision.
