What a difference a day makes!

session so here is one from when I was cooking my food prep for the day after I got home, I’ve included my new patch as I got it to remind me when things get tough, keep pushing! Keep working hard! Keep digging Deep! Having felt a little out of my depth yesterday at CrossFit and then getting my mind back in the game I headed out nice and early at 5am this morning to tackle any remaining demons. It was a busy class this morning and full of friendly faces, so that helped me feel at ease. Then I saw the WOD which included dips which I’ve never been good at and double unders which I have never managed to do at all. Due to it being test week both of those exercises were to be maximum reps to see how many you can do.
We started off with Thrusters which I felt went ok, and I could feel that the squat element is improving which is great for me. Then the dreaded DIPS, I surprised myself and managed to get 16 unbroken reps in, they got a bit sloppy at the end so I only put 15 down as I don’t count halves.
And finally, double unders came, now this is where working out next to @maurogiraldoz
helped massively, so positive and motivational. I tried my first double under and I fucking did it, might seem like nothing to some people but my first ever double under kicked them demons straight to the curb. The goal was doing as many as you can in two minutes, and they didn’t have to be unbroken, so I finished off with 16 double unders which I was absolutely chuffed with.
This journey in CrossFit is ticking every box for me and the vibe in the box today was great, cheering each other, supporting each other and being there for each other. Can’t wait to get back tomorrow now…. Thanks to @mbrockhurst
