To say that I was humbled would
be an understatement. What I
really wanted to do was to pick
up my bag walk to my car and go
I train alone, sometimes with one
other person. I usually am the
first to finish. On Saturday though
there people everywhere it was loud
and I was definitely not alone.
I opened my first CrossFit qualifier
failing 3 times at an opening press
weight that should not have been
heavy….IT WAS!!! I then stepped
for my deadlift, 300# a success. It
felt heavier than normal but it went
up. I then to 320….I don’t think the
bar moved. Failed twice at a weight
I had easily lifted a few days before.
It’s been a long time since I have
failed like that. It was very hard
for me. My coach Michael Street
said something I would say to one
of my clients. He asked me if I
learned from it, I was too upset to
answer that but after hours of
waiting for WOD #2 I shook it off.
I had been humbled, I had to put
It behind me, get my mind right and
focus on the next thing.
I went into the second WOD very
confident and completed the WOD
with one of the fastest times. I left
it all out there. I overcame my own
mind to enjoy great success after
what I saw as such failure earlier.
The answer was YES!!! I learned
that no matter what has happened
in the past you can’t let it affect the
future. Move on and learn from it!!!
The competition was good for my
soul, I WANT MORE!!!!!
