Question embrace the suck?

What suck do I embrace? I read that a lot and do not want to use it improperly, but I am not sure what suck. Is it the fact that I am sucking wind trying to get my breath so that I can continue my workout? Or is it embracing the thing that sucks about whatever? Probably the latter.
Anybody?

It means accepting that every WOD is going to kick your *** but you do it anyway.

It's the latter, i.e. this post sucks which rhymes with schmuck, think about it.

As in, "This is the most horrific 11 minutes I've ever endured. And... loving it."

Now spot all the obscure jokes in there.

Re: embrace the suck?

to me, it's a quick way of saying, yeah, this hurts, but I know it's good for me ultimately to push through it and I'm doing it anyway, so rather than fight the discomfort, accept it.
This requires enough common sense so that you're not, you know, pounding your thumb with a hammer hollering "embrace the suck!"...know your limits.
