There is this blogger who I would very much like to be real life friends with…
In “Crossfit Lisbeth“Lisbeth Darsh writes about Crossfit in a way only Crossfitters would understand (says the self-righteous “elite athlete” excited to finally be part of the cool crowd). But today’s lesson is one which applies to everyone and of course like all life growth, freaks me right out.
She writes about how in some areas (money, time) it’s okay to “save it for later” but not when it comes to giving your full heart in a workout:
Do you hold yourself back, just a little, in the workout because you worry you won’t have enough energy at the end? Do you pick that weight on the bar because it’s right for you … or because you’re scared of what you really could do?
Stop it. Most of the time, you’re probably doing yourself no favors.
Most of the time, you’re going to do better by going a little harder, giving a little more, being a little bit more of yourself. Not all the time, but most. The stuff you’re “saving for later” might actually be weighing you down.
This life is short.
Be smart. Be courageous. Be bold. Throw everything you got on the line and watch life reply.
