You've Got What it Takes

January 3, 2012

I thought this was a pretty appropriate phrase for today. As I have talked about the last two days, I am really pushing myself towards my goals this year... not that I really started to slack, but its time to amp it up. A few weeks ago I talked to M and K about the things that I really need to work on and how I could go about fitting everything in with my training... AND continue to do he daily workouts. Basically we wound up talking about the things that I can work on at the same time as continuing with the programming... and just a few extra things post WOD and on my skill days.

A few Saturdays have past now and I have been working a lot on my oly technique. I have the strength, but as M said, I am going to get stuck at a certain weight and go nowhere with it if I dont fix my technique. So, the time is here to slow down... reduce the weight a bit and really break down every lift I am doing, to get the max power I am capable of. In addition to that, I know I have had issues with my "speed" on some lifts, pausing at the top during a WOD with multiple reps... and of course my pullups, HSPUs and muscle ups. These are all the things I am working on daily.

Finally, the mind game of the workout... thats the icing on the cake. I must do all that I can to push through the workouts and limit my rest. However, while I am working on "all of the above" there are going to be days where I can not worry about the clock. I have to push that out of my mind, focus on form and technique and completing each WOD with all the standards that would be looked for at a comp.

I understand that there will be lots of agravation and frustration involved in changing the way I have been doing things. It is just another challenge that I have to face to reach my goals. I am willing and I am ready. I am hungry to learn and get better... I will give it everything I've got.
