July 5th – Cherry picking WoDs

So Crossfit Craic posts the daily WoD every night at 8PM the night before.  I’ll admit it, when I was on the train and read the WoD for July 5th, I mumbled (well, maybe said loudly) “FUCK!”  The WoD was simple: Run 5K.  A little bit about me: I hate running. Last summer, I used to try to convince myself that if I ran enough, I might come to like it.  Turns out, that NEVER HAPPENED.

One pact that I made with myself was that I wasn’t going to cherry picks WoDs anymore.  I did that in my first month at Craic and realized that I wasn’t going to get any better at anything if I chose the WoDs that were easier for me.  Having said that, I didn’t do the July 5th WoD.  I won’t sit here and justify my actions.  Plain and simple, I cherry picked this WoD.  Well, I ended up not picking it if you want to get technical about it.  Instead, I elected to go and swim at the local gym.

In the longer term, the swimming was worth it because I am woefully under-prepared for a swim that I am doing for Swim Across America on July 15th.  I hadn’t swam in a long time.  It felt good, although I’m a bit worried for the open water aspect of it.  In the short term, I feel like shit for cherry picking.  But it’s time to pick up and move on.  Keep on keeping on.
