You're not done til you're done....

When was the last time you finished a WOD and collapsed to the ground?  How about finished a WOD, then gone outside in hopes that you might get so lucky as to purge?  Dumb questions, I know.  Maybe a better question is when haven't you felt like collapsing or purging after you just got done crushing yourself??   I've been there, may a time and I know for me that when I get near the end of a workout, sometimes weakness tries to creep in there telling me that I should slow down.  It's almost like I set my own limit and when I get close to that limit, my mind tells me that I've given all I have. I'm almost out of gas and I have to fight so that I don't sputter into the gas station.  Thing is, my body has more left.  My heart has more left.  Our minds need tune-ups.

After you get done with your WOD, I would encourage you to not be done.  Make up your mind before hand that you're gonna do a little extra afterward.  Whether it's a few pull ups, push ups, double unders, a short loop, whatever.  Better yet, if you get done and someone else is still crushing themselves, bring 'em home!  Then, when they're finished, do your little bit extra together!
