A Note to Yourself…

Be gentle on yourself. Not every day is your best day. Not every workout is your best workout.

This day, when you are exhausted and beaten down from work, kids, and life, this workout is not a myopic reflection of who you are. You walked in the door and that is enough. You warmed up. You moved. You listened. And when you heard “3, 2, 1 go” you went. It wasn’t your best, not even close. You know you can do more. But you didn’t. And sometimes that’s okay.

It’s okay because in this moment when you are mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausted, you were kind to your body. You showed up, you moved, and you recognized that sometimes less is more.

You will have a day that is your best WOD. And when you do, remember that those best days are built on days like today when your best just meant showing up.
