Over the past several weeks I’ve gone through my annual thinking and feeling, wrestling with my personal CrossFit Open registration process. I’m already in my head about this post thinking and feeling a bit insecure about admitting it is in fact for me a process.
Usually around the Holidays the initial thoughts and feelings begin to creep-in. The Open is coming. The Open is coming. The F- Open is coming. Didn’t it just end?
January is a lengthy month with plenty of time for some reflection, rumination and regret. I will think about and often feel that I am not in the shape I used to be in. Don’t want to think about and feel that weekly pressure. Don’t want to feel the competition. Bannister. Why does the guy think we need to compete against each other every year? There’s going to be some heavy overhead movement which is going to crush my shoulder and I’m going to feel the familiar sadness. Fitness shouldn’t make people feel badly. I think I just want to workout. This year I’ll pass.
