Day 707...sOmEtiMeS iT's eNoUgH...

I don't know what it is with people that Crossfit. I wonder if Crossfit makes us the way we are or if we are drawn to Crossfit BECAUSE of the way we are. I love meeting other people that love CrossFit as much as I do and I always notice many similarities. Most Crossfitters are tough and unapologetic and passionate and driven...always pushing for more...faster...not afraid to suffer or puke or gasp for air. We are not afraid of a challenge or a little blood. We wear our bruises and scraped shins and torn up hands with pride...we see them as battle scars..something to be proud of rather than injuries we want to hide or be careful to prevent. It's always full throttle...no halfway or maybe or in between.

Sometimes this gets me in "trouble"...sometimes it makes me understimate a workout or make a stupid decision. Today was one of those days. I wanted a cardio type, metcon workout today...no heavy weight...just my body and lots of heavy breathing. I saw one that a friend had posted on Facebook and decided that I would do it. As I headed to the gym, I made a decision. I decided that while the workout looked good...I could add just a little MORE to it.

So I came in and did a fairly lengthy "dynamic warmup". I wrote the workout plus my addition to it on the whiteboard...and then grabbed a timer and took off on the first of what was supposed to be 4 one mile runs. It was originally 3 one mile runs, but I thought I would add another run and an extra 50 reps of yet another exercise. It was about 10:45 and it was already sticky and hot. I realized on the way back when I was running uphill, that this would not be too easy...and it would not be fun...still I was determined to follow through with my plan. The second run I started to have that feeling...the one where the realization of just how hard it will be to finish kicks in...and the third was just a fight..."a bare knuckles...no rules...do whatever you can to win" fight. It was so muggy and hot and I was starting to feel exhausted. It was then...as I climbed up on the GHD to do my situps and leaned all the way back...that I realized that the prescribed workout...the original creation..was ENOUGH. And it was not because I am weak or afraid of pain...not because I wanted to get out of the gym quickly...I just knew. I know that when I program a workout, I have a reason for what I prescribe and I know that my friend did too. For once I decided to be smart...to stop trying to become everything in ONE DAY and realize that what I had done...was ENOUGH.
