This one time I made Bacon Toffee; or, This week I gained 3.4 pounds—Everyone makes mistakes. How can we make them and not kill ourselves trying to get over them?

One thought on “Thoughts on my Crossfit/WW Journey”

  1. Started off strong. Finished the row in 3:58. Feeling pertty good into the thrusters, until the 15 mark. Struggled through the rest of this one. Finished in 14:10 which was dead LAST! I’m proud that I finished every rep. My shoulder protested yet again tonight but I do feel like the mobility, icing and other work I’m doing for it seem to be making some improvement. Used the green band for the pull ups, and finished only 2 minutes behind the time I projected I would complete the WOD so maybe it wasn’t too bad overall. Happy birthday Wayne!
