Tuesday Gets Epic

So the other day Kermit asked the 7pm class, "what they are irrationally afraid of?" I replied something stupid like enclosed spaces, then as I walked away after the workout I thought about it a little more and what I came up with was the Fall guy. To give you a frame of reference when I first started doing Crossfit I was pretty fat and slow but when it came down to it I felt like I was willing to work harder for that 5 to 25 minutes than almost everyone else in the gym to be the best at any given workout. That is everyone except for a guy we used to train with at the old barn called the Fall guy. Every time he showed up at a workout I was afraid to go up against him because I lost my one advantage. All of a sudden there was someone in the room that was willing to endure more pain than I was willing to endure. I once saw him do a Chest to Bar pull up ladder and the guy turned his hand to meat but would not stop until there was absolutely no way his body could possibly physically do a pull up. Many of us stood around and watched this and thought this guy is totally crazy. I realized that I wasn't going to be the toughest guy in the gym anymore as long as this guy was around. I also realized that I was using that identity as an excuse to not work on my weakness and become a better athlete. Thanks to the Fall guy I realized I had to do things like figure out how to do Double Unders. So I would really love to hear from everyone about your personal experiences of who motivates you? Who or what are you afraid of? What or who makes you want to be better? In the name of fear here is one of the baddest workouts on the planet. .image Warm up: Quadra pedal basics Workout: Murph 1 Mile run 100 pull ups 200 push ups 300 squats 1 mile run Break up the reps anyway you like but the runs are the bookends.
