I'm so sorry that you weren't able to go, but I'm glad it was something other than you just no wanting to. :)

It's funny how we can make things so huge in our minds when we've done bigger and tougher things (I mean, you've given birth! THAT'S tough right there! :) I'm proud of you for facing up to it and coming here to let out that fear rather than holding it in and letting it hold you back!

I agree with the ladies. I had a really tough Hero WOD today and I struggled with it mightily. I was especially discouraged when my trainer said before I started that it shouldn’t take too long, people had posted times of 12 minutes or so. In round 3 of 7, I was already past 15 minutes.

I just kept doing one rep at a time and made my way to the end 30+ minutes later. I wanted to stop so bad, but just kept plugging away and that’s what we do in Crossfit.

Do your best and just do one rep at a time. You can do it – don’t psych yourself out. I’m sure you’ve already done so much at Crossfit you never thought you’d be able to do and you’ll do it again!

After my experience yesterday I can understand being anxious about a heavy duty work out. But, after almost crying and the brief feeling having failed at my attempt...I told that voice in my head to shut up. After talking to friends after the work out was finished I realized I was a huge success yesterday. Sure, I didn't do the work out as prescribed. And, I didn't even finish because the next class needed to start (and I was sort of thankful I didn't have to keep going for what would surely have been another 10 minutes). But, I showed up and I worked hard. THAT is what is important.

So, tell that voice in your head to keep it down. Go to the work out, scale as needed. Showing up is one of the most important things.

Good luck!

Your attempt may fail, but never fail to attempt.

CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.

Ok, here's the tough love - there's a lot of time between now and then. You can spend it making your self miserable and defeating yourself before you even set foot in the gym, or you can just trust that 1) it will be scaled appropriately, 2) if you have serious trouble, they won't make you finish, 3) you really are stronger than you think, and (most importantly) 4) you are only competing against YOU! Who cares if someone else finished it X time, if YOU finish it, YOU are the superhuman rockstar.

Never let anyone tell you different.

Not even you! (especially you! ;)

Now get over it and just do the thang when you get there.

I am not going until 4 today but the thought of this work out is causing me some serious anxiety..seriously, i had nightmares..i am slow, i hate running, it is 10 degrees out side i am afraid running out side is going to cause an asthma attack, the though of doing 125 squats much less jumping ones is already making me tired. i looked at what the time other people are posting an one of our trainers who is superhuman took 25 minutes to finish and the other from this morning took 30 to 35..which means it is going to take me an hour..and i HAVE to pick my kids up at 5, plus the 5 o'clock class always shows up at 430 and have a tendancy to mill around and get in the way which puts performance anxiety on me anyway..

I NEED SUPPORT!!!!!! I am really wanting to go and try to see how it will be modified for me but i am chewing my nails to the quick, i feel like i am going to throw up just thinking about the work out!
