The thought of coffee can propel me through a workout, especially one I don’t really want to do. It makes me move faster and work harder.
I love when I do CrossFit competitions because I always indulge in an extra shot latte beforehand from Starbucks.
It’s the little things in life that matter.
Coffee is one of those little things.
I drink coffee before I lift.
I drink coffee when I lift (sometimes).
I reward myself with coffee after I lift.
Find your motivating “thing” and do it! Whatever will get your butt off the couch. It’s worth every penny!
Today was an individual comp at CrossFit DNR in Fort Collins, CO. I entered the Open class because I don’t have ring muscle ups yet.
After the first WOD (which consisted of pull ups, wall balls, hand release push-ups, and a row), I was in third place.
After the second WOD (which was 30 sec max effort on assault bike with 7 1/2 minutes to accumulate back squat reps at 105 lbs in one set) I was tied for sixth. Basically, I was last in the bike but first in the back squats (I got 81 reps).
The third WOD is always the hardest cause I’m tired. It was 15 burpees over box and 30 snatches which climbed in weight with 17 min time cap.
I finished fifth overall. Not bad but not what I was hoping for.
Still, it was fun. Community was great. Free coffee all day long courtesy of NoCo Coffee Company. Snow as a backdrop. Now that’s a great day!
