I have been doing Crossfit for 4 years and I've noticed over this last year I have not improved very much.
Today I figured out why. When I am doing the workout and I feel I am too tired to continue, I stop and rest for a few seconds. This is not how one gets better.
What I should do, of course, is do at least one more rep. Always push myself to go one further or for a few more seconds.

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how to accomplish this. Christine thinks I should get involved in politics, which is a very interesting thought. Civil elections are next November.
Other options are creating either a health - or education-based business that involves my community.
I have a few ideas, but nothing concrete yet. It’s a big discussion but I feel a change coming on.
