Get ready for the Reebok CrossFit Games!

It’s amazing how much better I feel when I eat properly. It’s like night and day. Yesterday, no non-paleo food was eaten and I woke up feeling great. The past week or so I have woken up feeling groggy and sluggish and it carried throughout the day. My stomach was not right either. Today — after being aware of what I was eating yesterday, I felt like I should feel. Fit, awake and aware. So, this begs the question – why do I eat like that when I know how great it feels to eat the right way? Akrasia!

Today’s workout was one of my favorite kind now that i am improving on my Double Unders. I can do string of 10-12 now, with a small jump in between. I’m ok with that because I am getting the rhythm down and the feel of it. It really is all in the wrist and how you control the speed of the rope. My friend Wes said try to slow down your rope and that seems to have helped me a lot.. It’s amazing what cues help one person. You never know because what helps one person can mean nothing to the next. It’s a very personal thing which is why you have to go out and practice. Try different ways to get it done and see what works for you.  I have been going to the gym on Sundays and just doing double unders –over and over again and sure enough, I am seeing progress!

The Reebok CrossFit Games starts today with the announcement of the first workout. What I love about this competition is that anyone can enter. It’s not about being famous. You do the workout and make sure it’s verified by a certified CF coach and if your times are good enough, you get to go to the regionals. It’s anyone’s title to win – The Fittest Man/Woman.  I signed up because I want to experience the challenge of it all — and be part of the overall gym team that is doing it together. It will be so fun to watch the mad skills out there as we all fight to move up the competition ladder. Good Luck to All the Athletes – May you become the fittest person on earth…
