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:
- Counting can be tricky. Sometimes your head will bob so much while counting you get dizzy.
- 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.
- Don’t give up. Just when you think you can’t do anymore, you find a way to get one more rep.
- I have never felt more sore from standing around all day. Darn you hard concrete floors.
- 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.
- Support, believing, and communication. These are extremely important elements of a successful team.
- Watching people workout all day is good motivation to get your butt back in the gym and working out.
What did you learn from the weekend??
