My Goal: Beat Myself Up During Coronavirus Outbreak

I’ve just decided if I can’t do anything, go anywhere, or engage in normal, human social behavior, I might as well beat myself up with CrossFit. After all, I don’t have anything to go do that I should avoid soreness for.

Thus, every day, I get up trying to beat the shit out of myself. Thrusters, wall balls, lunges, long runs, bike rides, and dumbbells galore.

Why not?

What else do I have to do?

Yesterday, I did another CrossFit competition. It was a partner comp with one male and one female. This one was local, held at Official Fitness in Windsor, CO.

Like most CrossFit competitions, this one had 3 workouts and a floater and a final if you made it. We finished in fourth place by just a hair.

My partner, Alex, and I make a great team.  Our strengths and weaknesses complement each other and it’s always fun to work out with someone who 1) pushes you and 2) wants to win as much as you do!  The great thing about partner workouts is you work harder so you don’t let the other one down!  I definitely did, and I know he did as well!

It was a great time. The day was bright and sunny. My kids were able to come and watch because it was so close to our house.  The other competitors were amazing athletes.  Official Fitness was a welcoming, warm box.  Hanging out with other athletes is always inspiring.

In addition, I added more bruises to yesterday’s.  It was a great warm-up to the Open (which is happening in 5 days and I’m not ready!!!).  And I was blessed to spend time with some of my favorites athletes from my own box, CrossFit Endure!  Thanks for cheering us on guys!
