CrossFit Sudbury – 30082016 – “Lift those feet!”

Hey Friends!

That WOD was a heck of a mental test (for me at least).  Really had a hard time being motivated to pick up the barbell – though Mel mentioned a good talk her and Mandie had about staying positive and maintaining some positive mental chatter while you’re working out.  That’s something I hadn’t given a whole lot of thought to lately, though in retrospect I know when I’ve had a “bad” workout I can totally remember thinking all the negative things in the world, versus when I have a “good” workout I’m thinking positive stuff (or my mind is completely blank and I’m fully focused on what I’m doing – a flow state, which is rare for me but happens when I perform best).  Anyway, approaching the workout with a positive mindset should be seen as a victory in itself, and worst case scenario… you’ll have a great time DURING and not just after the WOD 🙂
