That’s the question my wife ask’s me most, only she words it nicely. I have a tendency to be absent minded when I drive and I’ll often miss turns and she’ll have to remind me where we’re going. I’m just easily distracted and I get to thinking about a lot of things at once and I can lose focus on my destination.
The same is very true for my Crossfit journey. I refer to it as a journey because I’m really just meandering around trying to figure out where to go. I set out all gung-ho, full of piss and vinegar but I often don’t really know where to point my compass needle. I have a destination in my mind but no clear map to get there.
That would be my main question to the interwebs. How do you decide what to do on any given training day? Personally I’m great at mindlessly following a plan. Give me a smolov cycle and I’ll work harder than ever for 16 weeks. That’s why Crossfit is so appealing to me. I don’t have to do anything other than show up at the gym and our workout is ready for me. Not much thinking involved, just finish the task at hand.
So is that all I need to do? I know I will progress in a lot of ways just by showing up and completing the semi random workouts on the board. As great as our coach is, he’s got more than me and my silly needs to worry about. Maybe I’m wrong but I’ve got something in me pushing me to do more outside of class time. I know more isn’t always better, but perhaps this time it is.
So I’ve got two main questions I need help with.
Given some free time, how do you decide what to work on?
If your destination is competing in Crossfit, whats the best route to get there?
Thanks for taking the time to read this and reply.
