Out of Your Comfort Zone

Out of Your Comfort Zone

So I had an interesting and rather cool experience yesterday morning. I visited CrossFit Extreme Fitness in Rockville, MD and hung out with Judd Borakove, it’s owner. I arrived at 7am after getting up at 6:15 – and felt a bit out of sorts. Oh yeah, they’re 3 hours ahead, so actually, I got up at 3:15am for a 4am workout! Now that is definitely not my normal routine! We began to discuss what we were going to do for our workout (rather than writing about the whole thing here – check my workout journal for Wednesday – 7/2/08. And I started to think about the last time I worked out in a gym other than my home gym, Petranek Fitness… it’s been a LONG time! And that got me thinking – how good it is to test and experiment – to do things out of the ordinary in strange places, where you don’t have the comforts of home and the habits that go along with them. Was I uncomfortable? You betcha! My whole “mojo” was thrown off being in a different space. But here’s the thing, the true test of your skills is being able to perform them at a strange times, at a different location, when your mind and body may not be ready or willing… and yet you do it anyway.
