Starting is the hardest part

The past week or so has been a bit of a revelation for me, a learning experience if you will. Two weeks ago I was on top of the world. I was feeling awesome. I was killing every single workout. I felt like there was no stopping me. Then I got a head cold. Then I stopped eating. And the wheels fell off the bus big time. Friday I didn't know how I was going to get moving again. Then yesterday happened.

Although I kind of didn't feel like it, I forced myself to head out to Crossfit yesterday morning. I hadn't gone in 3 days and needed to get back in the groove. I walked in and saw the Filthy Fifty on the board. Oh Crap!!!! The Filthy Fifty is:

50 box jumps50 pull ups50 kettlebell swings50 walking lunges50 knees to elbows50 push presses50 good mornings50 wall balls50 burpees100 jump rope (this should be 50 double unders but I can't do 50 yet)I saw that and thought, great, I've just taken 3 days off because I wasn't feeling well and I come back to this. CRAP!!! …
