"The way my relationship has evolved since motherhood- Training to compete in the sport of CrossFit is no longer a major priority but I still aspire to find balance between work, family and health and set a good example for Kye as he grows up. More so than ever before, strength training is vital; that 90mins or so to focus on myself keep me sane and obviously that has carry over to being the best mother I can be both physically and mentally”.

Those that work with me know how excited I get when it comes to programming. I sometimes think that sitting down to programme is like preparing for battle with your internal dialogue. It's important to remember that there is no 'right' or 'wrong', and that there is always more than one way to skin the cat

Keep it simple: Establish Priorities -> Create a Goal -> Build a Plan.

FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED
---
Just one more week of the 2017 @crossfitgames Open to go. Every year it baffles me when I see so called 'competitors' throw in the towel so close to the end. The list of excuses continues to grow by the day...'I'm not good enough', 'I'm not happy with my place on the leaderboard', 'this workout is stupid', 'I haven't practiced this movement enough so what's the point'. If you've read this far, I'm sure you've heard it too
---
The realism is this: no other sport allows you to do 'the test' as many times as you want until you get the best score possible. There are no opponents, so essentially you are in complete control of all the variables. Statistical data from past years pretty much tells us which movement are going to come up, and what capacities needs to be developed if you want to make it to the next stage. Understand that this is a TEST, and a test is designed to provide an indication of where you are at NOW
---
To be a competitor, you need to OBSESS about what you do. Seek to understand WHY you got the score that you did, and put the measures in place to make sure it DOES NOT HAPPEN again.
---
Be strong, develop capacity and learn how to deal with pain. More importantly, MOVE WELL and develop EFFICIENCY with each and every movement in as many combinations as possible. Do not throw more volume and intensity at the problem, because the likelihood is that you will only get worse (same or worse score on 17.4??)
---
Be a champion, stay the course and FINISH what you started!
