I Know You.

I know you. I know you're bigger, faster, and stronger than me. I know your Fran time is lower, your 5k is quicker, and your deadlift is heavier. I know you have 1,000 views on YouTube. I know you're a "WOD" Warrior. I know you.... but you don't know me. You don't know what's in my head, what's in my heart, and what's in my soul. You don't know that pain is my ally. You don't know that sweat and blood are my training partners. You don't know that I'm unbreakable. I know you train in your temperature controlled gym with the tough sounding name while I'm training in a garage exposed to the elements. In the heat and in the cold, in the humidity, rain and snow, I'm forging mental toughness. I'm tempering my resolve. I'm fueling my passion. I'm getting ready for the day we meet. I know your 1,000 YouTube views won't mean jack in front of 1,000 spectators. I know when the pressure is on, I'm goin' BIG. I know you don't know me....But you will.

Ok, ok, so it's a little on the dramatic side...but it's still pretty cool. Today I did 10 x 5 Bench Press at 225lb and then 10 Rounds for time of: 10 Ring Push Ups and 20 Double Unders. Time was 9:32. Muh-bubbies-is-gonna-b-sore.
