June 26th WOD

 

Working Hard...

Waking up today, I had sore muscles and could feel my Monday's crossfit WOD all over. With a couple of Aleve down, I carried on and I trained HARD. Sheep shape does not come easy.

Every BODY differs so much. Mine, is designed for excessive amounts of work, I thrive on long durations of physical steady work, while others have speed and graceful, fluid movements.

In crossfit today, my lack of graceful, fluid movements was downright embarrassing. I have no coordination and I tend to want to muscle through the movements. My brain seems to have a disconnect when it comes to learning how to apply technique.

My point here is that no matter where you are in your fitness journey, we all feel stupid in the gym sometimes. If you have a fear that people are watching and judging what you do in the gym and that is keeping you from going, get over it! People may watch you and you may feel dumb but you are still working hard towards achieving your goals and you are better off than rocking the couch.

I do believe that in time, I might develop some grace, but in the meantime, I will keep trying.
