Lots of things pass through my head in the late evening after a long day up at the gym. Everything from random ideas for marketing to an unreached market to another way to cue a movement to help someone learn. I often struggle with remembering all these things and for some reason, mainly being hard-headed, refuse to write them down. (I think I am going to change this…its a character flaw.)
For many reasons, last Monday was a remarkable day in my book. We added 9 names to the potential client list, finished our insurance paper work on Lindsey’s own CF affiliate (CrossFit Flower Mound) and I officially qualified for my 3rd straight birth in the CrossFit Games South Central Regional event. Although extremely small in comparison to changing the lives of the nine potential members, qualifying for Regionals this year was a huge accomplishment.
Laying in bed Tuesday night, scratching my dogs belly, I realized how important this journey has been. I thought all the way back to 7th grade football, high school sports and my brief college career. I replayed so many different scenarios and thought about the “what if’s?” But I was continually reminded of how I am a much different athlete now that I was then. I was also reminded of how I am a different person, yet the same personality.
While comparing me with my youthful self, I began a list of the main differences between the two. Finding these differences led to this post. I knew this was something I needed to write down, reflect on and then build on.
Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing different components which have let to some success of mine. The first will this week and touch on nutrition and recovery.
