Sometimes, I'll be doing some meaningless, stupid physical task. Jokingly I'll always say in a super serious voice "This is why I crossfit!" Mainly, I'm just poking fun at myself and the crazy sport of fitness. It does however bring up a good question. Why do we crossfit? Everyone's answer would be different, motivations, and drive could be any number of reasons. Whatever your reason, it drives you, motivates you, and pushes you to do what most others will not. What was the reason you started crossfit? Is it still the reason you do it today? I want you to think of your fitness journey as a marathon. It's not a sprint, it's a long, grueling, 26.2 miles of suck. One thing that makes going the distance easier is using checkpoints, make it to one, then on to the next, etc, etc. With out the sweet metaphor, it's basically this. You start with one long term goal(marathon), then you have your short term goals(checkpoints), keeping you on track to your long term goal. If you really want to get something out of your fitness journey, you have to be strapped in for the long haul. It's a lifestyle, a way of life, you can't think of it any other way. Comment below on want some of your checkpoints are.
