Embracing the suck on Monday!

This is probably not news to you.  You suck.  At something.  There are days where you see the WOD and think to yourself “I’m going 1980’s Mike Tyson on this poor bastard.”  And then there are the WODs where you know you’re going to suck.  That every minute will be hard and the people you usually finish ahead of will spank you.  There is a simple choice on day’s like that:  Embrace the suck or stay home and wait for something more to your liking.

Embrace the suck.  Make it your friend.  Hammer your weakness until you start to notice that it’s not so weak anymore and now people are asking you how you got so good at running/HSPU’s/heavy deadlifts/etc.  Better than yesterday every day.  That’s how it should be done.

Or stay home.  Maybe you’ll like tomorrow’s workout better.  Give yourself a participation award for the workouts you did do.  And next month and year?  You’ll still be skipping WODs and wondering why people who started after you are progressing so much faster.
