After two fabulous WODs, I hit Wednesday. The WOD itself wasn't so bad but there were pushups. Even that by itself was not so bad, but my coach made me do them the strict military way. No part of your body touches the floor except your chest. That's all fine and good except that I have a super weak upper body and always, always, always do my pushups with my whole body hitting the floor. But not Wednesday. I did about 90 pushups that way and it freaking hurt. It hurt bad. I started to get angry with myself because I was struggling so much with them. After I was done and headed home I had to talk myself down. I had to remind myself how far I have come. Just a few short months ago, I would not have been able to do pushups like that. Now I did the entire workout that way. They were hard but not impossible. I need to keep my vision focused on the positive. I am steadily making progress. My shoulder is not bothering me at all. My knee is soooo much better than just a few weeks ago. I'm doing the best that I can and pushing myself as hard as I can. I am 54 years old and doing Crossfit on a regular basis. That is so freaking awesome. I have to keep focused on that. My goal is to get a little better everyday. That's all. With that in focus, I must celebrate all the small victories.
