This week… so far.
I keep thinking that I’m going to get back into my regular blogging routine, and then I fail. Sorry team. This week has been pretty good so far. After a few weeks of not doing much, I am getting back to “normal”, but man am I sore! I’m trying to focus on strength for the next month and mix in some IWT’s and CrossFit workouts to help get me ready for Regionals (May 11-13th). Instead of writing out my workouts the past couple of days, I just took a picture of my workout journal… and if you really want to read it, you may need a magnifying glass
Something that I have been really trying to do is be still (not motionless, but just where I am). There is no doubt I still need a lot of work on this, but at least the thought is running through my mind. It can be so easy to get distracted… to let our minds wander to this or that thing, to wish that we were somewhere else or that we were someone different. Why is it so hard to be where we are? I have always been pretty hard on myself, so I don’t settle easily. Sometimes this is a good thing, but sometimes not so good… it would probably do me well to just be where I am from time to time. Am I rambling? Yes, probably.
With regards to working out, I encourage you to practice being in the moment. Sometimes the workout won’t be what you feel like doing… you may want to be doing something different, or be someplace different. You may wish that you were someone else… someone who is better at this kind of thing. However, you are you and you have this moment to do with what you will. There are always choices to be made. You can choose to quit or choose to fight. You can choose to stay home or at least just show up and give it your best. You can choose to keep moving, keep breathing, keep growing… becoming stronger, better, more awesome.
