Tuesday, July 31
Don't forget, the tubing trip is this Saturday! We will close the gym at 10:30 (No Extra Credit) so we can head north to the river. You NEED to be at the tubing place by 11:30 am so we can load up and get to the river. Here is a link to the directions.
The CrossFit Games start this Wednesday! Every year the test seems to get harder, but the athletes just keep getting better too. I am really looking forward to some of the events we know about already, and can't wait to see what else is in store.
It's easy to watch the Games and think you are not doing enough, or you are not fit enough, but don't fall into that trap. Remember, these are basically professional athletes competing at the highest level of the sport. Don't compare yourself to them.
Also remember, that what we are watching is a sport, not a fitness program. What we do day to do in the gym is a fitness program designed to get you a well-rounded fitness in one hour a day. Crushing yourself for five hours a day may be the best way to get to the CrossFit Games, but that probably isn't the best thing to make you feel good and healthy year round.
Use the Games as inspiration to work hard and set goals, but don't compare yourself to the individuals out there.
