Feeling Alive

February 18, 2013

The last few days have been all about working together for me. ML and I attacked Love em or Leave em as a pair on Saturday and today at the gym we had a partner rowing WOD. It is so important in a CF box that we all know how to work together, but I really dont think its something that is hard to do. At CF the community is so social and empowering it is hard to not let those around you not influence your workouts. The positive energy and push that comes from even the newest of faces makes for an experience that you cant get anywhere else.

No exception today. JM and I paired up and crushed the 4K partner row, alternating every 500m. She has been really kicking butt lately at rowing and was a perfect pairing for my recovering legs from this weekend. One thing is for sure, we know how to push each other. There was no lack of cheering for each other and once we were done we were right over to the remaining athletes to help get them through the WOD.

I love the feeling that I have in my body when I am sore. Recovering from a competition is such a different feeling than a weekly WOD. Same muscles, different level of soreness. That feeling just fuels my fire, gets me amped up and makes me ready to face the next challenge!!
