Note to FTF-ers: What I am seeing is impressive performance across the board from our newest athletes to our experienced athletes. Thank you for the dedication you continue to show. With time, patience and progress it will lead to the rise of a new dawn, the underdog will no longer be the underdog, the challenger will become the competitor, the strong will become stronger, the tough will get tougher. the mental games we play right now will dictate how the remainder of the next year goes. It is this moment, this week that sets the tone for the rest of your training. Get out of your head, let your weaknesses subside and your only thoughts be on how much you want it, how bad you are after it and what the next year of training will look like.
Train with integrity, passion and desire. Train like you have never wanted it before so bad in your life. Train like you mean it. Train like you want it so bad you can TASTE victory. Make every rep count, every movement push you to the next, let ever ounce of power be demonstrated with each pull, each jump, each throw, each twist and turn. Make very rep meaningful, every time you take a breathe should be powerful, every time you lift the bar should be intentional. There is NO wasted movement, no miscounted reps, no i think i did... only success, sweat, blood and tears. From here on out, YOU are a CrossFitter training for that spot, training for Life, knowing not what exists in front of you but only accepting the truth that is... train like you never have!
There can not be results without sacrifice. There can not be growth without growing pains, experience without mistakes and lessons without challenges. It is these moments that create who we are and how we react to them are our reality, our story, the outcome will greatly depend on that mentality. That outcome determines greatly how much we have in our hearts for our next workout. Realize that it will only hurt temporarily, but the pride of knowing you are giving every ounce of effort to your workouts will last forever. Ensure you are putting your best foot forward and go after it. THIS is YOUR year, YOUR moment, YOUR time.... seek it, destroy it and always remember WHY you are choosing this path....
