Hey friends! Popping in for a quick Sunday post. The CrossFit Open 2019 is over. I am sad but excited of being able to work on what I wasn’t and know, I am not good at. I wanted to share what I learned. It wasn’t just a fun competition, it was a challenge amongst other athletes of all shapes, sizes, fitness levels, and ages. There were things I couldn’t do whether RX’d, Scaled, Novice and even Masters, but I gave it my best shot and had a blast with this amazing community that constantly lifts you up.
What I learned the last 5 weeks:
I still can’t do a pull-up.
I still can’t do a muscle up.
I still can’t do handstand push ups.
I still can’t do burpees well.
I still can’t… and the list goes on but I haven’t given up and I won’t. It doesn’t matter. Yes, I’ve been doing CrossFit for 5 years and there are several skills I cannot do but I scale to MY ability #anyonecandoit I still show up and do every workout with a smile and keep pushing. And so do my badass friends.
I hope this inspires you to try something new that scares you. CrossFit scared me, even with my love of fitness, but I jumped in and have never looked back. My fitness has improved tremendously, I am stronger, I am confident and the friendships I’ve gained from this wonderful community are people I can call family. Thank you to Lara and Dan Sturm for the fantastic CrossFit community you have created!
We are on spring break this week and I’ll be spending time with my family. I’ve got 2 great re-posts on Tuesday and Thursday from when I first started blogging back in the day. If you want to see what we are up to this check out my Instagram stories and Facebook.
I would love it if you’d share this post! My goal is to inspire someone that wants to try something new they are afraid to do. Subscribe to the blog so you never miss a post! I’ll never spam you 🤩
