I think about quitting all the time (a Crossfit truth)

Keep Calm and Crossfit onAnyone who has known me for longer than 5 minutes (okay, 5 seconds) would tell you that I am crazy about Crossfit. Just today someone called me dedicated and said they could learn from me. In light of this, I feel a moment of honesty is needed – not the I-still-pee-the-bed level of honesty but still keeping it real. I think about quitting every day – every WOD. There is always a point, usually after the first round of a metcon, where I begin to plan my excuse for stopping – cramp, sore back, sore legs, sore muscles, sore everything – where I tell myself that it’s okay to stop early, just this once. It would be okay to stop, and I want to, but I don’t. Because what 10 months of Crossfit has taught me is that no matter how much I think I can’t finish – I can, because I have before. Sometimes it’s not pretty and sometimes I just want to lie face down on the mats for an hour when its done but that’s the point – it’s done, I’m on the other side, alive to plan my excuses for the next day :).
