My reps may have sucked, but I tried and I RXed that shit! I struggled and I did it. I earned those little red letters next to my name. RX.
So a little back story.. usually with Toes to Bar, I’ll do the first 5 legit, and then say fuck it, this is going to take too long (because usually they’re in a WOD that’s RFT and not an AMRAP) but instead tonight, I chose to work through them. Do each one the right way, regardless of my score, and I did!!
Guess how you get better? You fucking practice. And you try. And you suck, and you fail and you cry about it, and one day… it sucks less, you fail less, and you start to get it more, and you smile instead of cry because you’re making progress AND THEN ONE DAY.. you just get it. And then others look at you and say “OMG I’m so jeallouussss I wish I could do that!” It’s almost discrediting. It’s like I just want to say.. then fucking work for it. If you want it badly enough, you’ll WORK for it! Don’t envy others, use them as motivation to get yourself to where you want to be. Envy doesn’t get us anywhere.
The worst thing (and I’m guilty of it too..) is seeing something you suck at and choosing to avoid it, because you’ll never get better at something if you give up before you even start. You never improve if you don’t at least try once in awhile.
So anyway.. off soapbox.. Our WOD was the following:
10 min AMRAP
30 plyo push ups (2 45lb plates/1 45lb plate)
20 plyo push ups
10 plyo push ups
And then repeat.
I got a whopping score of 73, but you know what?? I RXED IT! I didn’t give up, I suffered through it, my hands hurt, my shoulders hurt.. but I did it. I fucking did it! and it felt so good.
