Ten months down, a lifetime to go

wfs

A few quick thoughts on my ten-month Crossfit anniversary.

Re: Ten months down, a lifetime to go

Thanks, y'all. I'm really looking forward to giving a more comprehensive update in two months. By then, I figure that I will have gotten my body composition more or less where I want it and can start working harder on my strength. After 25+ years of being a fat former athlete, my priority during my first year of CF has been in knocking the fat off. Come November, the priority shifts to not getting my azz kicked so badly on strength.

- Mark

November 14, three weeks into CF. That's me in the middle in the white t-shirt.

Wow, Anne. That's very kind of you. I worry about being a little abrasive at times. It's nice to know that something that I have said has been helpful. I appreciate the kind words.

Cheers,

Mark
