CrossFit: A Breakthrough Happens When You Least Expect It

The elevator to success is out of order. You’ll have to use the stairs… one step at a time. – Joe Girard

I had a huge breakthrough today that I needed so badly. I finally can say that I did kipping pull ups – no band! Full on Kipping Pull Ups. Something did just click like they all said it would and boy what a difference it makes. We met up with CrossFit Lady: Cindy today. Last time I did Cindy – I did 15 rounds with a blue band. It was 3 months ago, here’s my post about it. Notice how the last paragraph talks about how frustrated I was —

Today – 14 rounds, fully on my own with no help from lil ole blue band. Let me tell you though – I do have to work on my breathing asthma exercises because boy, it really took the wind out of me. I can’t tell you how energized I am after today. I tell myself all the time, the fact that I even get off my butt every morning and do CrossFit is amazing but everyone needs to have proof of progress, of it really working.  And after having those weekend pics screw with my mind, I needed this so badly.

It’s hard sometimes to remember that I am not the same age as many of the athletes working out beside me so when I see them progress faster, it annoys me. I mean I am happy for them — in awe of many of them really, but I want it too.  You know what’s next right? DOUBLE UNDERS unbroken — that will happen this year. Mark my words! I am flying high right now, just giddy.
