CrossFit: Just When You Begin to Wonder Why You Continue

It’s been all I can do to keep up with my CrossFit for the last few months. Every day it seems has been a challenge just to get it done. Between being sore all the time and my run still not where it needs to be, I’ve been questioning again why.

Until yesterday when I crushed DT.

DT is a CrossFit Hero Workout I’ve done before.  It’s insanely hard and is a test of strength.

CrossFit Hero WOD DT is 5 Rounds for time of:

  • 12 Deadlifts 105 lbs
  • 9 hang power cleans
  • 6 push jerks

It’s always been the hang power cleans in the CrossFit Hero Workout at 105 lbs that have gotten me.

Yesterday, I did this CrossFit workout with no expectations. Then I cut 7 minutes off my previous time. It gave me hope that all this work is doing something because most of the time I feel like I’m wasting my time.

After 3 1/2 years of doing CrossFit, it’s rare when you PR it seems. But yesterday I did. And it was a PR that meant something.
