Yesterday, I vented my frustrations with my snatch form. I know I’m doing it wrong, and I’m angry at my ignorance when I first started. And not knowing anything about CrossFit, I couldn’t self-correct.
Yesterday, I went to Oly class with Justin Thompson, a Level 3 CrossFit coach/Olympic lifting coach who owns Fort Collins Athlete Factory.
Yesterday, I learned to jerk correctly.
Yesterday, I learned to deadlift correctly.
Yesterday, I decided to channel my anger into results.
My new goal is to make it to Oly class as many days as I can. To ask as many questions as I can. To watch and learn and heed my coach’s advice. To nail form and watch my PR’s skyrocket.
So must you.
It does you no good to seethe about the past. Do something about it! In all areas of your life.
If you don’t like something, get angry about it and then change it! Life is too short to do otherwise.
Today at Oly we are snatching.
Today at Oly I will learn how to correct myself.
Today I can begin to re-train my body and do what it’s supposed to do.
Today is a new day.
It won’t be easy.
Nothing in life worth doing is easy.
Would you want it to be?
