What's a little rain, eh?

This morning at 4:30 am it was pouring down rain, and I really wrestled with the thought of sleeping in or going to the gym. I was so tempted to stay home. See:

Devil yawning on my left shoulder: "Driving a tiny sports car in the rain is dangerous, yo! You'd be a fool to get up out of this nice, soft bed!"
Angel wide awake on my right shoulder: "Get your butt out of bed and go to CrossFit...NOW!"

Uh...yeah, so the Angel wins again. I got up and went in for a big dose of, I mean a dose of the wonderful goodness that sustains me and makes me stronger mentally and physically. Yeah... that's really what I mean.

Today's WOD:

5 Rounds for time of:
15 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (Men 95 lbs, Women 65 lbs)
15 Thrusters (Men 95 lbs, Women 65 lbs)

My time: 17:21 Rx
(Compare to 4/14/10 - 15:46)

Looking at that "compare to" time, perhaps I should have listened to my little left-shoulder devil. *snicker* This is a tough, tough workout! I went back and read over my comments on 4/14 and laughed when I read the "I think I can get faster" part. Honestly, though, I think I CAN get faster. Today was not the day for that to happen, obviously. Next time, perhaps.

Anyway, I'm glad I got up and went to CF, despite the rain and the temptation to sleep in. I am always glad I went! Many days, it's the best part of my day.


And now a quote from the CrossFit Facebook page today, which I just loved (it would make a great T-Shirt slogan):

"I work. I learn. I sweat. I love. I hurt. Yeah, this is CrossFit." -- Jason Khalipa, CrossFit Games Champion 2008 and CrossFit affiliate owner
