Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run.

After One Month Of Crossfit

Technically speaking, my first month crossfit anniversary was actually last week, but you know how I get. Shiny things are distracting, plus, there are all sorts of other distracting distractions. This first month of crossfit was interesting, challenging, frustrating, and dare I say...fun. Fun? Yeah, it's not always fun but there have been fun moments. For example, I sort of love the olympic weight lifting stuff, mainly because it makes me feel like a bad ass, and you know how I love feeling like a bad ass. There's a WOD called Lynne which involves bench presses and pull ups, now I didn't go heavy on this and my pull ups are not pull ups but actually ring rows; but I totally loved this one. The coach even told me that next time I needed a heavier barbell because the weight I picked was too light. That particular WOD was made for me, they should rename it the Lucy.
(By the way, I love Gravity Falls. There, I said it)
It has been challenging, there have been some days that have been humbling, because even with my scaling (modifications), keeping up was a struggle. There have been some days when it's so frustrating and I have asked myself mid-workout why exactly I am stupid/crazy enough to be doing this. OK, there have been lots of days when I question my sanity, but as we all know, I am the mayor of Crazy Town, so it's all good. I will say that I can already see improvements in my fitness, the only issue now is improving my nutrition. For the next month, I'm going to pick one or two weekly nutrition goals per week to focus on. It's time to suck less and be more awesome.
