Accomplishment-220x153  Each of you have an assignment. I want you to think about and choose one skill/goal/time/etc. that you would like to  improve on. I can be anything. Improve your strength. Get a faster 500 M row time. Get the wall ball to the target. This is not optional. I will be approaching each of you. We will offer advice and work with you on accomplishing your goal. By consistenly challenging yourself, you will keep  moving forward and you will tap into much needed motivation. Improve always, physically, mentally, and spiritually.

We have all heard this before but it helps to be reminded. You will gain more fitness by focusing your energy on your weaknesses. Fearing and avoiding what we are not good at is a huge mistake. Get focused, be aggressive, and turn what you hate into what you love.

    Interesting post…at my cert last weekend, they stressed the importance of this. Working outside of your comfort zone is critical. "You fail in the margins of your experience." Expanding these margins creates more confidence as well as better overall fitness. My tasks: overhead squat and 500 M Row time

    Put me down for a 7:30 2K row by the end of 2008. I've missed you, Tabatas…

    I'm trying to complete CrossFit Seattle's Skill Level II. Here's what I have left:

    24kg KB snatch, 30 reps each arm
    400 meter run, 1:34
    1/2 x bodyweight thrusters, 45 reps
    800 meter run, 3:20
    2K row, 7:30
    "Helen," 11:30 (missed it by 2 seconds last time)
    1 mile run, 7:00
    And I've done the one minute handstand hold but would love to do it without a wall.

    It's tempting to go after all of them right away, but it's probably better to take it one step at a time, so I'm starting with the row.

    Good luck to all of you, whatever you do.

    Jon, Very good you have so many goals. I certainly think you can tackle more than 1 at a time. If you want to improve those runs, join us at the track Sunday!
