The Best Me I Could Be
Truthfully, I didn't feel well by the time we got to class. My muscles were lethargic. I felt a little light headed in the warm-up. I had to drop the RX weight this morning.
I was internally berating myself about "whimping down" to a lighter weight, but then it hit me. This one morning, in the grand scheme of things, doesn't matter. This morning, I did my best and that's all we can ever do. I didn't have an RX in me this morning. I really looked deep inside for it. I even tried one rep at the RX weight. With the weight racked at RX for power cleans, I couldn't even pick up the bar this morning - a weight that's not usually a problem.
So, I dropped the weight. I did my best. I made sure I had exemplary form on my lifts. I focused on my box jumps (which still need an insane amount of work). I pounded out 17 rounds and then collapsed onto my box. Today, I won.
