I want to share with you guys an email I received from one of our athletes with a link to an article from Lisbeth Darsh. Another one of our athletes had shared it on Facebook and this individual saw it, read it and then shared some very good points and concerns with me. I have been wanting to write about the “I suck at this” issue for a while know. After reading this email I knew that it was more potent coming from a comrade and fellow athlete than the coach. I asked this athlete if I could share this with you so here it is: (Make sure to click on the link too)
I do not want to sound like I am not complaining in any way, but I wanted to share my thoughts with you on this subject so that maybe you could remind folks in our community to be positive about their shortcomings. In time, we will all improve. I love everyone at CFBC and know that we have the best coaches and community around!”
There will always be things that we can be better at. Please keep in mind that if you have been CrossFitting for a while the new athletes are looking up to you. Whether you like it or not, you are somewhat of a role model. Surviving and completing any CrossFit WOD is a hell of an accomplishment. If something didn’t go well make it your mission to get better and move forward. Some days you will perform better than others. Train to not suck…
