Yesterday morning I went in to the box and asked Coach Corey if I could do some strength and skill work, and he said to me, "Sure, do whatever you need to. Have fun!"
When I first started CrossFit, I thought it was a blast. I really looked forward to coming to every workout and seeing what the WOD was.
I've had a rough patch or two where I needed an attitude adjustment or motivation to get into the box.
Since I've started getting more serious about CrossFit, I've gotten SERIOUS. "I have to nail this lift, I have to work my skills, I have to focus on form." "Is this a WOD I can do quickly with RX? Am I going to be competitive today with anyone else, or just me?" "Will I be able to achieve my end of year goals???"
And I have forgotten a little bit that this is supposed to be fun.
|Havin' fun with my girls for my birthday WOD!|
Speaking of fun...Jared and I have been following along with Tina's 24 Days of Togetherness!
Tuesday night we drew "Go out for a cocktail." But since Jared makes great drinks, we decided to hit up the store for ingredients and make our own at home.
Jared was in heaven at BevMo - he wanted to buy one of everything!
|This bottle was just under $2,000!!!|
We went with the Lump of Coal Stout - can't wait to try it.
We came home and Jared mixed up our gingerbread cocktails.
They were very sweet, but really good and Christmas-y! Plus it was fun to make a date night out of the experience of shopping together.
Wednesday night we were supposed to get a photo together. For all the pictures I'm snapping, I almost never get the two of us, so it was nice to have an excuse.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Don't forget to check back in Saturday and Sunday for mobility suggestions.
