It's All About Accountability
If you're a regular down here at SFCF and haven't claimed a space on the board yet, make sure to do so. Keeping a public record of your efforts not only gives you a quick reference for your next Fran attempt (should I use 65# or 75#? Well I used 65 last time, let's shoot for 75# this time) but it keeps you accountable.
It's easy to hide in your 'safe place' when you don't have 20 others ogling your latest deadlift. It's easy to loaf the next time Grace comes up when you're pretty sure you're under 10 minutes. It's uncomfortable knowing that there are others faster, fitter, stronger but it's that discomfort that drives personal improvement.
So, get on the board. Own your scores and be proud of them! We all start in different places on our path to greater fitness. It's not the ones with the highest scores that are to be commended, but those that put the work in to continually achieve and improve. In other words, it's not where you finish (there is no finish), but where you started, where you've gotten to and where you're going.
See you at 6,
