Mark (who has matched his slalom times this season from his races of 20 years ago) has one more contest today where has has to *jump*. We hope he survives. He says "thats what all the box jumps were for, right?" Umm, sure, Mark. Have fun!
Sitting and contemplating your limits will rarely teach you anything. But action will. It teaches me about me — and it teaches me about you.
Read: Finding the Lessons from CF Lisbeth
What does it take to make you stop? To make you shut up? To make you quit? In the gym, or in life?
Do you know — really know? Can you say where your breaking point is? Or at least feel when you’re darn close? In your body. In your brain, your guts, your heart. Can you tell?
Some people think the time we spend in the gym (and the importance we attach to it) is silly, misguided, overblown. Maybe it is. Or maybe we’re finding out more about ourselves — our strengths and our weaknesses, in body and mind and heart — in an hour than many people are finding out over the course of a day or a week or a month.
So get off your butt and act. Find out who you are. It’s not just exercise. That workout’s a lab — an experiment in life — every single day, if you want it to be. The lessons are there. Find them.
RCF is CLOSED today - we're at Rainier View Park in Sumner instead. There is an SCS workout posted, look back a couple of days. Labor Day Monday will follow a Saturday schedule - we'll open at 9:30am for one group WOD at 10am. No other classes on Monday. Enjoy your long weekend!
