What I learned from this weekend

Happy Monday!! What a whirlwind of a weekend it has been. The weekend was filled with good friends and a crossfit competition. I did not compete ( not quite sure I want to take that plunge) but got to judge and volunteer. This was kind of a different experience, I usually am the athlete, but it was a good experience to not be the competitor. 

Here is what I learned from this: 

  1. Counting can be tricky. Sometimes your head will bob so much while counting you get dizzy.
  2. I think as athletes, retired athletes, competitors or whatever you are, we expect a lot out of those people running the event. Well as the judge I expected a lot out of the athletes too. You never want to see someone struggle or have to repeat repetitions. Calling someone out on their mistakes makes them better. 
  3. Don’t give up. Just when you think you can’t do anymore, you find a way to get one more rep. 
  4. I have never felt more sore from standing around all day. Darn you hard concrete floors.
  5. Small victories are just important as the big ones and shouldn’t be overlooked. So many times we get bogged down focusing on 1 thing that we miss the little achievements along the way. 
  6. Support,  believing, and communication. These are extremely important elements of a successful team.
  7. Watching people workout all day is good motivation to get your butt back in the gym and working out.
