2nd week down!

It's been an interesting week for me personally (economic slowdown-job security etc) and Crossfit has been like a rock in my life - giving me the ability to focus on just taking one day at a time and channel my emotions into power. It's something I'm traditionally not good at...just ask any friend or family member.

All this week, I tried to use all of the emotional energy I was feeling and poured it into my workouts. Monday I kettle bell swung with all my might, Wednesday I rowed my anger out and Friday I was a quiet warrior, determined to hold the pace and and not let my "love" of thrusters defeat me.

Emotions are a powerful thing and important to express. I'm grateful to be learning a new way to express them!
