Happy hump day! We love celebrating our athletes’ victories (both big and small) here at the Cove and today we applaud Angela D.! She leads an incredibly busy life and finds that one hour for herself every day (while many of us are still in dreamland USA). She is a 5:30am devotee and her consistency and focus is paying off BIG TIME. She’s quite humble so you’d never know the trajectory she’s been on unless you like to wake up at an ungodly hour, so we are going to brag FOR HER!
She does another REALLY important thing for herself: she sets GOALS! Some are stretch goals and some are more near term, but she’s constantly working towards what she wants to accomplish. We recently talked about them and after spending some time looking at the goal board she realized a few important things:
Double-unders were down a goal of hers. And only recently it struck her “OMG! I have them! They’re not pretty, or unbroken, but I can do them’!”. And as she so beautifully said, “We spend so much time thinking about how far we have to go… That we don’t think about how far we’ve come. Aside from my numbers going up on my lifts, my knee injuries seem to be a thing of the past! I am running again in every WOD! (I still hate it). I am doing box jumps again, I can do double-unders (when even attempting them before would hurt my knees) and I can do full GHD sit-ups.”
She admittedly has many goals on her list… But that’s one of the things she loves so much about CrossFit. “There’s always something new to work towards.” Well said, Angela! And huge congratulations on your amazing accomplishments!
