So I stepped away from writing again, but there was a legitimate reason.... I had nothing to write about, or so I thought....
It all started from a friend, a colleague, a peer . . .
From being bored with the same routine, from plateauing time and time again . . .
I wanted to get healthy, I wanted people around me who cared . . .
They called it constantly varied, functional movements, executed at high intensity . . .
It's about taking the first step -
It's called CrossFit and I friggin' love it!

No song lyrics - title misinterpretation. I had no thoughts, no dreams, and no aspirations. I just did it, just to do it. A testament to myself and what I would be capable of. Given that the last workout was the same as last year, it was the only true way of being able to test whether or not I had truly improved.

Recently, I saw a number of things that impressed me beyond words. When a bad experience hinders us going forward, it is tough to overcome the mental block. Think of it as a phobia and one of the ways to get over it is discuss it and in other instances we just do it.

My team is made up of every walk of life. People with common and uncommon jobs, common and uncommon lives, and anything else that you can think of. Guess what? Our common purpose to draw us together is CrossFit and our common goal, to make the most of every workout that the CrossFit Opens provides us so that we can represent ourselves at the Regionals in May in Canton, MA.

In preparation of the CrossFit Opens, I didn't feel strong enough to play with the big dawgs - those guys who could lift 500 lb deadlifts and 300 lb Clean & jerks, therefore, I took a long period of time (3 months) to increase my capacity and my ability to lift heavy loads through Olympic Lifting. Now coming back into the Opens, I potentially made a mistake, but it is an ability to learn from our mistakes that lends itself to self-realization.
