CrossFit and Community

We met Kelly again today at CrossFit. She is one of those mean ladies that are considered benchmarks. I woke up with a sore throat and tired and should have listened to my body more but I love the challenge of doing these benchmarks — so I went. It was tougher than I expected. I usually am absolutely fine pushing through to finish — but after round 2, my internal voice was like quit, leave, stop.  But I didn’t. It totally confirmed to me that tomorrow is a rest day.  Even I need to be reminded to not burn out.

Tonight my box, CrossFit Impavidus is hosting a Happy Hour at Jimmy’s in Herndon to benefit the Wounded Warrior.  I have said this before but this is really one of the things I love about CrossFit. Community is a very important part of it all — getting together, having fun and also helping others.  Doing stuff like that helps with your workouts at the box — the support and connections you make. I never got that with my Gold’s membership.
