Team Pressure Right Back
Friday, September 06, 2013
Like a rubber band, I stretched the opportunity for fitness toward my co-workers, and they attended.
Now, they are pulling me right back. It's a good thing.
So even though I'm uncomfortable going to Crossfit because people use the same room as a breakroom lounge DURING the exercise (with their cell phones and the possibility of filming/taking photos), I will continue to go.
Last week I walked out of a session. The trainer brought Bulgarian Bags, and didn't offer alterations to the drills he was trying to train us. I took a couple of hits to my head and tried to push past the frustration, but it won. I started my cycle later that hour, helping to explain some of my reaction.
Monday was a holiday, so no Crossfit. Then Wed was outside in the park - in the HEAT of 90 degrees. I passed. It'd be easy for me to continue to skip out. Except I did a really good job of convincing a couple of women that THEY should go, so they're still asking me to come back.
I didn't have plans of quitting, but it's much easier to have the peer pressure to go instead of the judgement or peer pressure to avoid the class!
Tomorrow is a Mobility/Strengthening session. It should be good.
