15-15-15-15One of the things I enjoy about CrossFit is the satisfaction I feel after a workout — like I DID something. Because of the way we measure everything, it’s easy to see your progress. Did you jump on a box two inches higher than last time? Did you lift ten more pounds? Did you use a thinner assistance band for the pullups? Those days, when you DO those things, are supremely satisfying. That sense of satisfaction leads to a sense of accomplishment, and the energy carries out into the rest of your day. I remember clearly the day I beat my deadlift personal record, after a year of trying – I was happier than the day I graduated from grad school! Sometimes the little pleasures are actually more fun than the big ones.
