One of the things I have learned through doing CrossFit is more often than not the concept of “can’t” and “don’t wanna” are very much the same thing. All of us have been in the middle of a workout and thought to ourselves at one time or another, “I can’t do anymore,” only to discover an untapped energy reserve when the leader of the class comes over to suggest, in a voice that can be heard at least three blocks away, that you could be trying a little harder. So clearly there is a redefinition of terms which needs to occur, or at the very least a little self-honesty. When you tell yourself (or worse, others) something such as “I’m unable to…” you imply a physical inability when none exists. It would be better to replace the “I can’t” cop out with what you really mean, “I don’t wanna.” That way you are being completely clear with yourself about your abilities, and will reach deeper next time you’re going for a PR and come up short because “you couldn’t”.

Today’s WOD:


For time:
1 mile run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile run

Break up the pull-ups, push-ups, and squat however you’d like.
