Some days are a real struggle. I have been doing CrossFit for over a year and I watch people go past me, lifting heavier or getting movements down pat while I slowly chip away. I have to remind myself that most of these people are 10 - 20 (or more) years younger than me ... surely their ability to grow muscle and increase in strength means that they can do more than me. I hate using age as an excuse but it's reality. I wonder if I'm kidding myself when I dream about doing a muscle up or handstand push up. Can I teach this old dog new tricks? Or should I just accept and move on.
And then I have days like this week when I get a couple of PB's ... nothing major, just a 25 kg snatch and 52.5 kg back squat. Again, it's nowhere near where other girls are but a PB just the same. My double unders have just 'clicked' and I got a couple of strict pull ups with a 5 kg weight strapped to me. Those are the days when I feel like I'm defying gravity. When nothing can pull me down.
