“Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you got ’till it’s gone“.
We all know the line. And boy, is it true…
I told Christina Quong tonight that I would pay five-hundred dollars to be able to power clean.
And I meant it.
Actually, I was watching people jerk thinking how amazing it would feel to stomp my feet on the floor underneath that weight.
My forte in CrossFit has never been the heavy stuff…Light, long, cardiovascular intensive WODs are where I shine. Yet, I’d kill to throw some heavy weight around these days.
Because I can’t.
Due to my back injury, I haven’t been able to pick up more than 55 lbs in three weeks. I never thought the day would come when I’d want to jerk. Heck, I’d even snatch heavy right now if I could…
We always need these reminders. They’re good for us. The next time you are doing something you “hate”, be grateful that you can do it.
And so do it hard...
