This morning was my fourth Crossfit class. I know I am way out of my league. But, the people there are constantly going with their “Way to go Jack!” or “You can do it Jack!”
And, honestly, I think it is sincere. Today it was some bench pressing. I think I may have gotten to 95/100 pounds. I think the least I saw on others was 150/160 and I think some had 3 45 pound weight on either side. Yet, they are encouraging me. And, some jump roping. I have no coordination, so after a while I drop the rope and pretend. But, I did get up to 26 in a row. Meanwhile, some of them are swinging twice in one jump. But they are still fist bumping me.
I hope I can get to the point where I can give that kind of encouragement.
What that little encouragement does is make me want to go back.
