But Then This Happened…

Crazy Day On Wednesday…

Just Wanted To Thank All Of Our RCCF Law Enforcement Officers, Correctional Officers, FireFighters, Paramedics, EMT, Doctors, Nurses, People Behind The Scenes… ANY Kind Of Emergency Personnel…
I Try To Make It A Point That When You Ladies & Gentlemen Leave The Box After Your WOD I Tell You “Be Safe…” Because You Know Better Than All Of Us “Civilians” That Shit Could Hit The Fan At Any Given Moment FAST!!!
Thank You For Your Service & Be Safe…

“PRs & Tear Drops…”

Some Times You Get It… Some Times You Don’t…

Being A Coach Is A Love/Hate Relationship…

The Love…

Nothing Better Than That Huge Smile… The Jumping Up & Down… The Laughter… The Bro/Sis Hugs… The Fist Bumps… That You Guys/Gals Give & Get When You Finally Hit That Perfect Lift…

You Warm Up… You Nail Lift After Lift After Lift…

Then You Hit That Wall…

You Miss… Then You Miss Again… Then You Miss Again… And Then…

Finally… You Nail It!!!

Yes… We Are Just Lifting Weights…

But You’d Be Lieing To Me If You Said That You Didn’t Feel Like SuperMan Or Super Woman Once You Finally “PR”… Or Not Even “PR”…  But Just Get That Lift That You Kept Failing…

I See Your Smiles… I See That Look Of “Finally” When A Few Mins Before You Had That Look Of “What The F–K?!?!” Or Even Worse That Look Of “Give Up…”

The Hate…

We Changed It Up A Little Bit…

Using Your 1 Rep Max…

60%… 65%…70%…75%…80%…

5 Sets Of 5… 4 Sets Of 5… 3 Sets Of 5… 5 Sets Of 3… 3 Sets Of 3… Are Somehow Incorporated Into The MetCon…

All Those Weeks Of Hard Work…

Those Above Percentages Felt So Easy In The Beginning… Then Slowly Got A Little Bit Challenging As The Weeks Went On…

But They We’re “Do-Able” Weights…

Then Comes “Re-Test Week” And…

You Walk Out The Box Disappointed With Your Performance…

It Hurts To See…

This Normally Comes From Our “OG” RCCF Athletes…

“Why???”

Because It’s Freakin’ Hard To “PR” When You’ve Been Doing This CrossFit Thing For So Long!!!

Take A Look Back & Think About Where You Were 1 Year Ago… 2 Years Ago… 3 Years Ago… Hell… Some Of You Have Been With Me Since 2006!!!

You Don’t Have To “PR” During “PR Week”…

Some Days… You’re Just Not Feeling It…

I’m Not Going To Lie… I’m Stressed Out… This New House & Moving Has Got Me Stressed The F–K Out!!!

That’s Just Me…

For Some Of You… Maybe It’s Family Problems… Job Problems… School Problems…

Anything Can Get You In Lil’ Bit Of A “Funk”…

Stress… It’ll Get Ya…

And Then Some Days… Some Random Day… Everything Clicks…

So This Past Week… Actually… Any Day…

Whether You Walked Out The Box With Your Head Held High With A Huge Smile On Your Face…

Or You Walked Out The Box With Your Head Low… Close To Tears…

Only Thing That Matters Is That You Walk In The Next Day Ready For What Ever Crazy Challenge RCCF Throws At You!!!

ALRIGHT… HERE WE GO!!!
