Reality Check

So I went to Crossfit and it was like a slap in the face. Just walking in I started to feel depressed. Seriously!!!! I knew that I have lost some ground and I was bummed about it. I got in there and saw the workout and wasn't thrilled with it.

3 rounds for time:

  • 6 pull ups
  • 22 wall balls
  • 168 single unders
Actually it was 6 muscle ups while holding a medicine ball with your legs. 22 wall balls with an extra squat while the ball is in the air.  84 double unders.  Since I can't do muscle ups or double wall balls or double unders, I did the easier versions. That made me feel depressed. Then I just did not put my heart into it. I really phoned it in. Yes, I did every single rep and yes, I sweated my butt off, but I could have gone a whole lot harder and faster. And I didn't. I chose not to. 

I feel fat and old and so completely out of shape. I hate this feeling and I'm not sure how to shake it. Or even if I should try. Maybe I should just ride it out and keep moving forward. I don't know.  What I do know is that growing old is a bitch!!!!
