Put one foot in front of the other. This really is the way to summarize yesterday’s CFM Quadrathlon. First of all, attendance was LESS THAN HALF THAN USUAL for a Monday training session. Yup, there are about 16-18 of you out there who did not show up (most likely due to the running, the burpees, the rowing and/or the thrusters- in that order!). But this blog post is not about you.
This post is about those who showed up either because you never check the blog in advance. It is even more so for those of you who DO check the post in advance, who DID click on the ‘compare to date,’ and who actually put one foot in front of the other and made it in to the WOD! It is for those of you who REALLY REALLY did not want to run, burp, row and thrust (at least not for THAT long!) and even more so for those of you who want to scale it back… but went ahead and just put one foot in front of the other and got it started. And didn’t it seem to get a little easier from that point when the clock started and you got into the groove? I don’t mean that it got EASY. But that once you got one foot put in front of the other- that it simply got done.
Keep showing up, working hard, and improving! (13 PRs set in the 5pm CrossFit Total Class!)
