I Won Today! A Mental Victory!

Remember this quote from the other day :"Show up and run your own race. You can’t do anything about other participants. There will always be gifted, hard-working athletes posting amazing performances in the Open. Let yourself be humbled. Then let these athletes inspire you to get out there and do your best."

21-15-9 Kettlebells and burpees. I was tempted to scale so I wouldn't be last.   Kettlebells not so bad, burpees are my nemesis.  Before I had my knee replaced I wasn't very fast, now, molasses is faster.

As the minutes ticked up I realized that I was way behind most of the class and I was going to be one of the last to finish if not the last.  "Do I scale mid-Wod or do I gut it out?" ran through my mind. "Would I feel more satisfaction if I did all the reps or if I finished quicker?" The answer was obvious, do all the reps.

This day, I beat down the "Dog of Fear" and remembered the quote above:  "Then let these athletes inspire you to get out there and do your best." Today, I chose to be inspired and did my best.
