1st Goal in 6 yrs.

Its only been close to 2 half ass months of crossfit (for me) but I credit my success to the gains Ive made in this time. Its a short story - sort of. As you may or may not know I still play soccer and this past Tuesday I scored the 1st outdoor goal Ive scored in the last 6 years since college ( I play defense in the back). It went like this, Monday we had to run a 5k. In my genious I show up with a new pair of shoes that happen to be to small and totally devastate my right foot to raw bleeding meat. Tuesday, after some heavey wrapping I suck it up and play our first outdoor game of the new season. I came into crossfit with a few goals and they included gaining endurance and speed. Late in the game I made a run from the very back and was able to receive a pass in front of goal and still have the legs to blast a shot upper 90. That may not seem tough, but if youre as out of shape as Ive been its progress. Anyhow, I just thought Id share a success and give some love to what helped me get there. As I continue to transform I look forward to wrecking it on the pitch and in the box. Gracias!

    Seems like there are a lot of soccer players around here. Where does everyone play? I think someone needs to organize a CFS soccer game.

    Awesome! But really...raw bleeding meat? j/k  it is just the start, wait two more months and then two never gets old and you always get faster.
