“I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can’t trust em.” ~ Jim Valvano
Come on, you know you wanna smile, or at least smirk a little at that quote. Not everything has to be so serious.
I put up quotes about motivation, character, will power, strength, positivity, etc. All of those quotes are great insights into tapping into your inner-self, but they are just words after all. You still have to do the do.
Have you asked yourself lately if you are having fun?
Are you where you want to be with your training?
If the answers are yes, then keep on it.
If the answers are no, when was the last time you remember thinking yes?
Everyone should re-assess things every now and then to determine you are happy where you are at and where you are going.
CrossFit workouts are supposed to be mentally and physically challenging. They are also supposed to be fun. Grit your teeth, sweat and breath heavy during the WOD, but in the end, you have a couple of outcomes to consider.
– Were you pleased with the results? It’s ok to say yes or no. With the inner competitor in all of us, we know we want more next time. In that same thought process however, we should know that we did all we could in those 10 minutes and 30 seconds of work.
– Was it fun? I suppose the definition of fun is different for everyone, but the answer should be yes. You may not think it was immediately after the WOD, but you did show up for the WOD, so you looked forward to it in some way.
“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.” – Dale Carnegie
