I should’ve made time

I should’ve made time

By: Mindy Coby

It’s rare, but there are days when I literally have to talk myself into putting on my Olympic shoes and getting on the WOD floor.

It’s not that I don’t love CrossFit, I most certainly do. I’ve loved it from day one. I love the community at my box, what it’s done for my body, my health, and my mind. Short of God and family, it’s basically the greatest thing ever.

But just because I love it doesn’t mean I always like CrossFit.

Sometimes, when I look up at the clock during a workout, I think, “I could just stop, its not like anyone is here to notice.”

But then I remember why I bought those Olys in the first place. I remember that burning desire that I’ve had for months on end to achieve my goals. My desire never leaves, it just becomes temporarily masked by fatigue, or a busy schedule, or whatever excuse I have that day.

The days I want to be there the least, are the days I gain the most.

I learn to push without a crowd or a coach. I can actually hear the sound of the bar dropping, the whip of the rope, and my own breathing. CrossFit bring me clarity. Me against me, against the clock, against a whiteboard.

No matter how I walk in, I leave accomplished. I can go about the rest of my day that is still waiting for me, no worse off than it was before, and I can rest assured that at night that I won’t have to deal with thinking about how, “I really should’ve made time.”
