Many times i hear about people being disappointed by not getting a PR everytime they train. The only time you should consistently get PR’s is when you have either taken time off benchmarks workouts or your first time to ever do a workout.
If you take your fitness and look at it as a journey rather than a destination you will be much more pleased with your progress. Crossfitters tend to want instant gratification. The minute you can come to terms with the journey of fitness the more comfortable you will be with the process of fitness.
Think about elite level performers like Olympic lifters. They work for 4 years for less than 10 seconds of total work. What if it doesn’t go as planned? They don’t scrap everything and quit, they go back and develop themselves and work on their weaknesses.
For all of you who are bummed about not getting into the CF games this year, don’t worry. There will be plenty of time to develop yourself in the next year, two years or five years. Have patience with yourself and your progress and you will both enjoy and benefit more from your training.
