Crossfit Open 2019

In 4 to 5 days, we will be finding out what our first workout called 19.1 will be. This will be my third year going into the open, and I'm not nervous. The open workouts are just a way for me to see how I stack against my previous self and those within my box. It is nothing more than a benchmark, and I'm sure it's the same for a lot of people. It's always exciting to see athletes compete on top form and they always seem to make it look so easy. I used to think that I could do it like them, but I've learnt I'll never be as good as they are.

What a write off

Today has been pretty stressful to say the least. Having some guy shout at me through his car window really got to be. It shouldn't have and most things usually go over my head, but this got me. It was probably the fact that my day already wasn't going well and this was the nail in the coffin which sent me over the edge.

In Spite of Fear

I watched a video today by the lovely Anna Reel where she says "In spite of fear, do it anyway". This pretty much goes along with what I've read. A book called Feel the Fear and do it anyway explains it in much better detail. However, the basics of it are, if you fear something, you should do it anyway. Usually the best outcomes in life are because you faced fear head on.

Valentine's Day - 2019

Today is Valentine's Day which means couples will be spending time together. Maybe they'll spoil each, or maybe they'll chill with some Netflix. However they spend Valentine's, it can be a wonderful day.
