Don’t be bigger than the moment.

Whatever craziness is going on in your life right now, no matter how big and scary, never let it take over. If you find yourself unable to take that deep breath and look up into the nothing that is surely bigger than you and your craziness . . . well then, you’ve lost right there. 

Do your best to always be able to step outside of your own head and see the moment you’re inside of. We’re never bigger than the moment. If we can grasp the bigger ‘what’ around us and be able to be ‘out of body’, not to mention realize the gravity of that (talk for another day), we’ll live in a greater space and have ultimate peace in the moment. 

Too many are failing to find peace. Failing to find happiness. What they’re missing is that the peace they’re after is in the moment they’re in. They’re leaving the moment far outside of themselves rather than being inside of it. 

Do yourself a favor and recognize the moment. It’s much bigger than you.

Recovery Day

A. Maintenance
* Choose 2 Thoracic Mobility Drills from Kelly Starrett’s Mobility WOD and spend 10 minutes with them (5 each).
* Choose 2 Upper Extremity Mobility Drills from Kelly Starrett’s Mobility WOD and spend 10 minutes with them (5 each).
* Choose 3 Lower Extremity Mobility Drills from Kelly Starrett’s Mobility WOD and spend 15 minutes with them (5 each).

B. Food Prep
* Ensure that you have quality foods prepared in the appropriate quantities to fuel your efforts for the week ahead. Get with a coach asap for a nutritional consult if you are yet to be aware of what those foods and quantities are. 

C. Athlete Journal
* Review last week’s entries in your journal. Look for discrepancies in your attendance and performance that you can focus on this week. That could mean you didn’t show up enough, you logged your workouts poorly (rushed or vague notes), or you physically had an off week and could perform better in the week to follow. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EVERY OPPORTUNITY IN FRONT OF YOU!
