It’s been a while, but This Is How I Feel is back for Vol. 4: CrossFit Edition.

Vol. 1, Vol. 2, Vol. 3

 * * * * *

After doing A HUNDRED FUCKING THRUSTERS

leg day

* * * * *

When I try to string together more than 1 1/2 butterfly pull-ups

kipping

* * * * *

During Tabata push-ups

tabata pushups

 * * * * *

When the RX weight for a WOD is twice my PR

when rx weight in a wod is double your pr

* * * * *

When a coach asks me what rep/round I’m on in the middle of the WOD

someone asks question during wod

* * * * *

When there’s an outdoor WOD on a day it’s 90+ fucking degrees out

what is this fuckery

* * * * *

When the box is closed

when box is closed

* * * * *

When I walk into the box wearing new gear 

walk into box wearing new wod gear

* * * * *

When I’m talking to anyone outside of the box about CrossFit and they’re like

surrounded by globo gymers

And I’m like

when talking to non CF about CF

* * * * *

When I checked out the Lululemon online shop for the first time:

lululemon

* * * * *  

When the Whole Life Challenge ended

when WLC ended

* * * * *

The day after 400m of walking lunges

when trying to get up from tabata squats or walk day after

* * * * *

When I see one of Coach Lloyd’s Chipper WODs on the board

hurt like a mofo

And then I look at him and think

hate you

And in the middle of it I’m convinced

what went through mind furing

* * * * *

When the coach yells “10 SECONDS”:

clock countdown to WOD

* * * * *

When I walk into the box after more than a day or two off

walk into box after hiatus

* * * * *

When I first heard of burpee box jumps

when first heard of inverted burpees

* * * * *

When I FINALLY string together more than 3 pull-ups or double unders

find out some1 does cf

And then can’t string them together the next day

when you cant string double unders or lift a weight

when you can't finish

* * * * *

When the coach goes over a tough WOD and then asks if we “have a plan” for completing it

plan for wod

* * * * *

When there’s surprise coach led core work after a WOD

let me die

* * * * *

When I look at Leaderboard times at my box

look at leaderboard times

* * * * *

When the WOD has wallballs, pistols, or burpees

when the wod is

* * * * *

And, finally, what people think I do when I tell them I do CrossFit

nail the weight
