Yup for those that don’t know, good old coach Jeff is now responsible for raising another human being. Yeah, you need to take a test to get your L1 in Crossfit but no test is required to have a baby?? With this being my second time around, I know what to expect (I think) with the challenges that are coming up with balancing my time with my growing family, work, and getting into the gym.
With my first son, I tried my best to be in the gym 4-5 times a week. As a coach I thought that NOT showing up would set a bad example. I push athletes to show up and put in work and to overcome their excuses and if I don’t come in then I’m being hypocritical. Now, I look at training in a different way. If you’ve read any of my previous posts, I am a big advocate of having balance in your life.
When this baby comes in March, I want to be there for him, my wife, and my soon to be oldest son. Spending time with all of them is priority one and getting to the box will drop down the list. Does that mean I plan to stop all together? Not at all. I just know that I need to maximize the hour I have to train. Hitting the WoD with intensity 3 times a week is more effective than coming in 5 days straight and just going through the motions.
Wish me luck CFOx fam! I’m gonna need it.
