MetCon – Angie:
100 Air Squats
Finisher: Make sweat angels on the floor!
Easy? Pssssh. Why would you want easy? Isn’t “easy” what you did before CrossFit? Do you really want to go back there? Maybe you do mid-MetCon, but I know that isn’t how you feel an hour afterward. I promise you, it never gets easy. BUT you do get more comfortable with the pain, the suck, the immensely uncomfortable feeling in your chest, stomach…everywhere.
Dangerous? No. Face-to-face with a grizzly bear is dangerous. A winter ascent of Denali is dangerous. CrossFit pales in comparison on the danger scale. But this is serious work for people serious about changing not only their fitness but their mental toughness, comfort with uncomfortable situations, the way they handle themselves in business, family, love, and all life situations.
Jon Gilson from Again Faster has this to say about CrossFit:
“Do yourself a favor, and realize that there’s no technique in the world that will save you. There are no pills, no secrets, no passwords on the path to greatness. You’ve got to embrace the pain, push the threshold, and feel the suck, and then you’ve got to muster the courage to go back six times a week.
After all, the world is a lot brighter when your pupils are the size of dimes, and massaging your sternum with your heart starts to feel good after a while. The plasma finds its way out of your lungs, and eventually you’ll be able to drive.
Sometimes, lying on the floor is its own reward.”
Your last MetCon was easy,
P.S. – Here are some pics from today’s festivities. I’m sorry I don’t have any of girls…I never professed to be a good photographer, just an above average coach. Grant me that at the least.
