Mindset: (Something I spoke with Shawna about today.)
*All based on personal experience and not any science research.
We all have bad days and constantly battle with our thoughts.
Here are some common thoughts I have on bad days:
- why the hell am I doing this
- This is impossible
- This hurts
- Meh I’ll never get there anyway
- deep breathe, push through
- Let’s do better than yesterday
- I got this
- This is so good for me
Typically there are some common denominators when I have negative days:
- Lack of quality sleep
- Lack of proper nutrition
- Lack of proper hydration
How could your mind run efficiently when your body isn’t??
Something that becomes apparent as I get older is that taking care of your body helps to produce a positive mindset. This isn't just in Crossfit, it for everything. When I have really productive, positive days its usually contributed to taking care of everything in my control!
Moral of the story, kick butt on whats in your control and practice positive thoughts.
"Performance Enhancing Apparel"
"I was having a bad day. My back was sore, I couldn’t touch my toes, and an empty bar felt heavy. Then I put on this shirt. My clean PR increased immediately by 50lbs and my mobility was better than ever before. You should get this shirt before they put it on the banned list for."
