Progress Not Perfection

I struggle with comparing myself to others (in the gym and in life). Lately, as I have been working specifically to decrease pain in my knee and hip, I have learned to focus on my own gains as they affect me (without looking at others for comparison). It’s still a work in progress, but my own physical limitations are teaching me that it is pointless to compare. Everyone has their own unique strengths, goals, and limitations. Now, I am finding joy in the process as well as in my own progress (even if that progress is slower than I would like).

My top 6 reasons for training right now:

  1. Doing unassisted pushups! (could not do 1 when I joined)
  2. Decreased knee and hip pain (which I've struggled with for 20 years!)
  3. Completed both kettebell courses
  4. Improved mood helping manage mental health
  5. Completed first 2 OCR races and loved it!
  6. In best shape of my life in 10 years (and that's after having 2 kids)

My Goals

  • To complete a triathlon sprint in summer 2016
  • To improve my time at Mud Hero
  • To be able to do 1 unassisted pistol squat by year end
