Okay, so I totally feel like a failure today. It’s week 4 in the CrossFit open and I couldn’t complete one rep this week.
This was my fear when I entered. I knew it would happen sooner or later, I’m just surprised it took until the 4th week.
I feel like a total loser. In a way it validates all my fears about signing up in the first place. I mean, I know I’m not going to be competing at any type of level so why bother, ya know?
Then I started to think of all the races I’ve run.
I never had a chance of winning any of these either …
Isn’t that all that really matters?

That may be a bit dramatic, but I do feel like I stumbled a bit.
Here’s the thing, though: I can either use the fall as an excuse to stay down or a reason to keep going.
I choose to keep going.
Just wait for a post later this year when I clean and jerk 95 lbs because it’s coming.
