You all know I’m a sucker for inspirational essays and thankfully someone writes them better than I ever could.  Due to a computer mishap involving a certain someone named Charlie, my planned post will have to wait.  The gist of it addresses some of the common “issues” (tendonitis, sprains, strains, etc) athletes like yourself might be experiencing, and what you should be doing about it.  Seriously, ice and rest do wonders.  Until next time, enjoy this gem from Lisbeth Darsh:

“Everything changes, or it dies out. Nature is pretty brutal that way. Adapters survive. People love to reminisce about the early days of anything. That’s human nature. “Remember back when . . .” “It was better when we used to . . .” And that’s okay. Things always seem simpler and better in retrospect. Present day is hard. Challenges are hard. Changing is hard. Life is hard. CrossFit is hard. Thinking about glories of the past is an easier task. Fun. You’d much rather talk about the first time that you did “Fran” than actually do “Fran”, right? Good things don’t usually stay small, or quiet, for long. We love to share what we love. And that’s okay too. Just because something isn’t new anymore doesn’t mean it isn’t still awesome. But awesome isn’t an end state anyhow. You just got to work hard for awesomeness every single day.”
