no images were foundYesterday’s workout was awful. It hurt in ways I never thought a workout could hurt. Joe (pictured) even said he was pondering skipping the WOD yesterday when he saw what it was, but he came in to brave the pain storm anyway. Judging by the number of names on the board yesterday it would appear that many of you had similar thoughts as well, but you let them get the best of you.
It’s ok to skip a workout now and then when you’re on the fence about coming to the gym and the WOD seems rather unpleasant. It’s also ok to skip a workout occasionally when it involves something you’re bad at, severely dislike, or just aren’t particularly in the mood for.
These things are ok, you see, because that’s the very best way to accomplish all your fitness goals. Picking the things you’re good at and the things you like, and purposely avoiding the things you’re bad at or dislike is the most efficient and effective way to get stronger and better at everything.
Of course, I’m being sarcastic. Pick your lazy ass up off the couch and bring it into the gym for some work. I don’t care if you don’t like the movements or think the workout is too hard. The fastest way to improve is by coming in to do what’s on the board to the best of your ability. If you’re going to pick and choose what workouts you feel like doing, then you have forgone your right to verbally observe that you’re not in as good of shape as you perhaps would like to be.
Excuses don’t make you better anyway. I’ll see you at the gym to do your least favorite things.
