Don't quote me on this

     Good Day to all you hard-hitting people out there in internet-land! It's a great motivating day today... just like everyday should be. Today we take a break from the coaching tips (don't worry, I haven't run out of blog topics). Today I want to talk about motivation again. Specifically I'd like to hear some motivating quotes or saying that you live by, or makes you dig deep in that dark WOD. Here's a little collection I have for you:

"The only good thing about zombies, is that they all eat Paleo."
     -Frosh (yours truly)

"The greatest anabolic is water...anyone who tells you different is dehydrated."
     - Dave Lipson

"It's hard, to to step back up and dust the dirt off and keep on going. But that's where you learn who you are inside."
     - Kyle Maynard

"Yes, if you squat wrong it fucks things up. If you squat correctly, those same fucked-up things will unfuck themselves."
     - Coach Mark Rippetoe

"Fall seven times, stand up eight." 
     - Japanese Proverb

"I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'"
     - Muhammad Ali

     So what do you have for me and for everyone else? I want to hear them! Post your favorite(s) to the comments. I leave you with a little extra motivation:

  1. Teddy Roosevelt from 1910:

    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.


    Anyone doing CrossFit is in the arena, competing through sweat, tears and torn hands, battling against the weight and the clock, victorious in finishing the WOD to your own best ability.


  2. You waste twice as much energy doing it wrong the first time...just do it right.
