and finally some food for thought from CrossFit Lisbeth.

Go at Your Own Pace

Sometimes you want to wait for your friends, but you can’t. Not in CrossFit, not in life.

You love them but their pace is slower than yours, and you can’t stay at that pace. Just can’t do it. It feels wrong to go at that rate. So, you know what you have to do?

Leave them behind. Go at your own pace.

Just do it. Don’t feel bad. Don’t hang your head with shame. You’re stronger at this. Press on.

Finish first. That’s okay. It’s more than okay: it’s the right thing to do.

You weren’t put on this Earth to go at someone else’s pace, to be less than you can be. So don’t be less. Don’t cheat your own strength.

Finish when you can — and then go back and get the others. Help them finish also. In cycling, we call this “picking up” the last rider. In CrossFit, we call it “Not being a d***.” Toni Morrison has some other (more eloquent) words for it in life: “When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else.”

Finish, and then go back for the others.
