Sometimes, you start your WOD and everything just sucks. Everything. Your hook grip feels funny, you smack your chin with the bar, and your chest-to-bar pull-up catches . . . only air. WTF.
Life sucks. You suck. And then you die.
Or so it seems.
In reality, though, you have basically two choices: You can get bitter or you can better. You can quit or you can make something of this piece of sh** day you’re having. That’s always your choice. Nobody makes it but you.
So, decide. Reset your jaw and come right back at that WOD, and life. Make it — WILL it — to get better. Finish your rep, finish your round, finish what you started. Do what you said you would do.
Or be a p**** and go cry about it. Quit something else in this life. Give up. And then convince yourself that you never really wanted it anyhow. Because that’s just how you roll.[box]Your day, your choice, your life.[/box]
Recovery isn’t a drink after a workout. It’s the entire way you approach life.
