So many times we try to improve ourselves by making good habits when life throws us a curveball. When it comes to working out things like injury, or time constraints can derail progress. The physical aspect of the struggle can be profound by itself, but the mental aspect of not being able to continue something that was working can be even worse.
When something comes up whether it is injury or a life changing event it can feel like everything is lost. But often times these events are a chance to change perspective. They give us an opportunity to work on something that we might have missed going full throttle. In both cases going back to fundamentals is usually the best bet. Whether the problem is a broken leg, or a job that has become overwhelming taking a step back and simplifying can give enormous insight to move forward.
Instead of showing up to the doors of CrossFit Banshee expecting to set a PR on the next workout, the goal becomes showing up and working through a weakness or focusing on doing a movement perfectly. Even just taking the time to connect with people that have the right mental state and can offer support can help break the chains of pain and mental anguish.
If you do find yourself in a place that something doesn’t feel right or has you down and you’re contemplating not coming into Banshee, reconsider. Even the act of coming in and working on rowing, or core movements can take you a long way towards coming back sooner.
