I cried once for an entire WOD- doing pushups and sprints.
Do you ever have one of those days or weeks where you feel like nothing is clicking? You couldn’t string together your toes to bar, the overhead squat felt more wobbly than usual and you just couldn’t get rid of that nasty early pull on your clean…. Yea, me too. We all have them. Maybe it’s an off-day, maybe an entire week is feeling not quite right. Sometimes it’ll be like that. Yes, there are ways to remedy—maybe your sleep was not good quality or you were off track with your nutrition, maybe you broke your tibia or even had a fight with your cat. You all know how to brush it off and suck it up and move on. But I'm going to share with you my favorite remedy to wash those blues away...
The next time one of these bad days happen what I want you to do is find 15 minutes of peace, where nobody will interrupt you. That may mean no computer, tv, phone, or people for a short period of time. All you need is yourself and your Success Journal (or whatever notebook you use to keep track of progress). I want you to cozy up and start back at day 1. Look at your WODs day by day. Spend some time reminiscing about your accomplishments and failures. Some of them will be so memorable you’ll remember every moment before during and after the workout. Sometimes you’ll remember them because of who else was in your class or what the weather was like or maybe because of your score.
And then once you have noticed how far you’ve come in the time you’ve been working on your fitness, I want you to watch this video because its rad.

I’m curious, what’s your most memorable WOD?
24 October 2014
Skill/Strength: We’ll get into a clean complex. If you need to clean up your clean, get your butt in to the box! Fridays are usually quieter, so take advantage of more coach time in the small classes!
1. Baseline WOD
Rest 5 Minutes
2. The very first WOD that 7VCF ever did -- on 21 November 2013.
