Just keep going.
Oh the joy of those workouts that seem never ending; the 20 minute AMRAP or the 10 rounds for time…
Sometimes they are bearable - they have some of your favorite movements in them or they just grind along.
But other times, once every now and then, you get hit with a doozy. A mind numbingly painful WOD that leaves your legs shaking half way through.
It’s the WOD where after the first quarter you think to yourself…”maybe Ill just let this one go” because the end is too far away and the pain is to unbearable.
It’s the WOD where with a few more minutes on the clock you start bargaining with yourself - you start telling yourself it’s OK to throw in the towel.
Those WODs suck. But just keep going. Keep grinding out one awful rep at a time, keep putting your hands on that infinitely heavy bar and pick it up off the floor, keep fighting to get your chin over the bar time and time again.
If you don’t keep going the time cap will pass and all you will be left with are sore shaky muscles and the realization that maybe you could have done it, that maybe you underestimated yourself.
If you keep going through that miserable test of courage and physical perseverance you might be left shaking, crying for your mama, or around the corner meeting our old friend - but you will have succeeded, you will have proved to yourself that no matter the obstacle, you can defeat it.
