Thursters are one of my least favorite movements. I think it’s because I’m not very good at them yet. It’s funny how that works, isn’t it? But, to take my own advice that I give to athletes, I turned it around in my head and said, “I’m excited for the opportunity to improve my skill at Thrusters!” Orion’s workout today closely resembled a Hero workout from CrossFit that we did together a few months back, but this one was shorter and sweeter, and you didn’t need to keep track of time between rounds.

I had to pull the class together after the workout today and have a conversation, though. I have never seen this many people in one class show as perfect form as you guys did tonight. It was INCREDIBLE. GREAT JOB to all of our athletes!!

Workout of the Day:
10 Rounds for Time
5 Thrusters
100m Sprint

    I like your attitude. As a teacher I have noticed that students who say they hate reading and writing also do not think they are good at it or do not believe they can improve. On the flip side, students who like reading and writing usually believe they are good at it and/or that they can get better at it. It really all goes back to perspective. One of my main goals as a teacher is to change negative views to positive because only then do the skills begin improving. An important rule to remember when it comes to my own fitness!

      Thanks so much for the comment, Lindsay! Someone very special to me once said the phrase, “Fake it till you make it.” It was under the context of me being overly dramatic about something and the input being… Stop. Smile. And give off the energy you want to feel. If you smile long enough, 9 times out of 10, you can trick your body into ACTUALLY becoming happy.

      Our mind is a powerful thing, huh?!
