We had visitors today at our Box; two families of athletes from Sherwood, Arkansa. One couple were the owners, of Sherwood Crossfit. They were impressive athletes and I could not help but be inspired.
My talk with Jon, after the class, stirred the caldron, of my two continuous conflicting thoughts, that seem to persist, in my pursuit of excellence. One, keep at it, and I will get stronger. Push, but don’t over do it. And the second is a nagging, feeling that I can do way more.
I find my peace, (where there is none) somewhere in between.
Crossfit is world class.
I took the words of Greg Glassman from the website page of the Sherwood CrossFit page, sherwoodcrossfit.com.
They are the recipe.
Can I get healthier? Yes.
Can I get stronger? Yes.
Can I get younger? No.
Does it matter? No.
Am I world class? ~

I understand. I get this completely. I work really hard, especially for my age. But did I work hard enough? How do I know when it is hard enough? What’s the yardstick?
We can get better and stronger. We know this because we have already done so. But we cannot get younger. Are we World Class? That is the kicker, isn’t it?

according to the information in the header – maybe we are – I know we work hard and get results – that’s what I’m going for – the long haul
