I don’t particularly care for new year’s resolutions, as it usually conjures up images of short-lived, half-hearted attempts at bettering one’s self one way or another.
However! I do believe dedicated, disciplined, consistent effort with specific tangible goals in mind is admirable and effective. With that said, do any of you have anything in mind for the new year? Better nutrition? More focused training? Achieving certain poundages on lifts or times in benchmarks? If not, why not map a few goals out?
The past six months training for me have been a bit all over the map. There’s been several not-so-serious, but plenty aggravating, injuries including back spasms, pinched nerves in the neck, and stress fracture in the foot to name a few.
With that said, I think I bite off more than I can chew with WODs or lifts at times, I guess hoping to push myself so I can progress and adapt faster, but I think my efforts are counterproductive at times. Therefore, one of my resolutions is to stick to pack scaling, regardless of how much I want to or think I can go over it, so I can focus on form, consistency, and higher metabolic effect instead of ego or a false sense of doing a “better workout.” Hoping to see more consistent progress and less side lining because of it, we shall see!
I’ll also be starting CFSB lite to get my lift #‘s up.
How about you? What’s the plan? Thank you all for posting your wods and dialoguing about this wonderfully challenging and life enhancing sport of crossfit, it’s inspiring and motivating and fun seeing everyone progress, and I’m extremely grateful for this forum and the people / coaches on it.
