I have had my fill of taking breaks with CrossFit. . . needless to say, it never ends well. I have been away from these posts for far too long, therefore, I am going to make it a necessary thing on nights when I coach, to come away with something. There is always a story to tell, whether its a life lesson, a quick lesson, or a question I hear from the night.
It's okay to get frustrated doing any movement. A lot of what we do requires technique and some patience, I can't reiterate enough how important it is to stay level headed. I ended up getting an email from someone last night apologizing for getting frustrated. Interesting, it was about pull-ups - during the WOD no kip, but tired, finished with the workout, and not in the heat of the moment, they got their chin over the bar with ease. A deep breath, a step back, re-address and get to work.
Sometimes you just gotta clear your head to make it go your way.
A simple message that has a profound effect.
Let's see what tomorrow brings, and for those of you who did "Jackie" last night, congrats, that is one fun workout that I enjoy watching!
Getting back on track to bring you something every night I coach.
