I think its safe to say that I sleep better at night knowing what the WOD is going to be the next morning when I get up for the gym. See... going to the 5:30am class is perfect for me (yes, Sarah we know it is) but that means that there are nights that I am literally waiting for the WOD to go up on the website before heading to bed. No, there has never been a day that I bailed on a workout because I didnt want to do it... and yes, there have been nights that I didnt seep as well because I knew it was going to be a challenge the next day... but there are also nights (like last night) that I went to be super excited and slept fantastic because I knew what the next morning was going to bring... my favorite Hero WOD, "DT."
There is something about this WOD that really gets me going. DT are the initials of SSgt Tim Davis, 23d Special
Tactics Squadron, US Air Force who was killed in action on February 20,
2009. He was 28 years old supporting operations in OEF when his vehicle
was struck by and IED. He was a husband and a father to a one year old
son at the time of the accident. I have said before... he must have been one hell of a man, because this is one hell of a workout.
My mind is changing and my passion and focus is growing. I have been working hard on my form during my cleans, jerks and snatches. Really concentrating on M and K's coaching, taking it all in and retaining. I know the last time I did DT it was Rx, and I know I laid it all on the line that time. I also know that I have only gotten better, I have only evolved more and my approach to a long and challenging WOD has also progressed. I have a different approach... I guess it might be harder to see on the outside, but I can feel it.
Today was amazing. I had my head in the game and really thought about my rest time and strategy. When it was all said and done... when the last jerk was complete I had my moment, that moment that I crave, that I strive for every day... I dropped to the ground because I everything burned, I laid my arm over my face, I tried to steady my breathing, the sweat was pouring off me... and I couldn't have been happier.
