The slippery slope.
It starts with moaning and groaning when something shows up that isn’t your absolute favorite.
Then chatter starts up when you see your least favorite movement on the board.
Finally, excuses start up, giving you an out for the WOD. Heck, maybe you don’t even show up for it.
"I’m not good at pullups", "HSPUs are my nemesis", "I am sooooo slow at running"
Guess what? That workout is what is going to make you improve the most.
What is the point if you only concentrate on what you are good at? Proficiency takes work.
It takes a lot of work.
So instead of cherry picking WOD after WOD because they aren’t suited for you, or you will be too slow, or you will have to scale - show up, attack your pain points and get it done.
And yes, cherry picking includes showing up and just going through the motions, so don’t think you are off the hook just because you got your ass in the car this morning. No, no. You still have to put in the effort.
This week I challenge you. I challenge you to change your attitude, put in the effort and let it be what it will be. Win or lose, first or last, scaled or Rx’d.
I challenge you to attack each and every WOD, even if it is your least favorite this or light weight that.
