Today was my "off" day for CrossFit.. .but I have to get my burn on in some other way.. but today it just wasn't happening.. I had plans to have dinner with an old friend at 7pm.. at Chipotle.. I could have gone swimming but not alot of time to wash my hair, get dressed and get to dinner.. I could do some rowing at home but just wasn't in the mood..
Truth is, I wasn't in the mood for activity at all.. I just wanted to veg.. so, I came up with a plan to walk to Chipotle.. if I took a circuitous route it would be 3.2 miles.. which is a long walk for me..and I could get my friend to give me a ride home.. Usually, my achilles hurts for the first mile.. and then it kinda calms down.. but not tonight.. it hurt the entire time.. bad.. and I limped into Chipotle..
However, I wanted to turn back.. I didn't turn back.. I pressed on. .I wanted to take a day off... but i didn't.. I walked the 3.2 miles and I made it to dinner. I had a great time with my friend..
I have no inspiring point here.. just that this journey is NOT EASY.. and a lot of times it's NOT FUN.. and today was one of those days.. and now I'm going to bed and hoping my attitude will be better tomorrow..
My coach says "sometimes you just have to check the box and move on"... and that's what I did.. I checked the box..
