Something that I’ve been struggling with since returning from The 2010 CrossFit Games is finding the ‘fire’ again. Something crazy happens when you reach that level. You spend sooooo much time driving towards one event, one weekend and when it’s all over….what do you do?
I took rest. For two weeks I made a deal that I wouldn’t touch a weight for two weeks and I did just that. After two weeks I was itching to get back after it. I knew I wouldn’t hit full stride again day one, but it’s been two weeks and still I struggle. I’m not putting up bad times or being lazy, I just don’t feel the same fire that I had pre games.
My theory….I started training for the games in January, and I never had any real intention of making it. Not that I didn’t want to or that I thought I wasn’t good enough to, just that I don’t think of myself as being at that level. So mentally I reached and achieved a long term pipe dream much sooner than I had ever imagined leaving me struggling to really push myself. why? Because I’m still trying to take it all in.
I’m not ready to start pushing towards 2011, I’m still taking in 2010.
Today’s WOD: REST!
