I often get asked ( all the time) "what do you do for you". This question always takes me a little by surprise because as a parent that question isn't normally asked.
I was asked this question last by my sons NDIS planner which was even more surprising.
My answer is always the same, I Crossfit!
You see, that one hour I get to myself is all I need to put me in good stead for my day.
It has become my happy place, my morning coffee, my demon destroyer, my mind clearer, my re-focus and keep moving. It's where I can be me, not Richard, Estelle or Alexandra's mum.
The intensity of it helps me focus on what needs to be done that I feel like it's spoilt me for a "normal" gym
But I think WHERE I crossfit has also spoilt me from going to any other "Box". People always talk about the Crossfit community and I've been part of mine for over 2 years. I've seen the same absolute fabulous people lead by our amazing and very very patient Coach up to 5 days a week.
During that time I've developed long friendships with most of them. I adore my "Bad-Ass Crossfit 930iers", we keep each other motivated.
I've never watched myself lift but I can see the damage on my back mainly the curve inwards of my shoulders due to bad posture, I can see what Coach has been talking about right from the very beginning. I think a lot of people who shift heavy sometimes dead weight can relate.
I've been doing that for 11 years.. with the last 2 years feeling a lot easier because the learnt techniques but I think its time to seek help to work on this!
Wasn't going to post this clip because I know some people will have lots to say, but in saying that, boy I can lift heavy stuff! Not my PB (60kg) but hey..technique is what's most important.
