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.
