Mental Toughness

'My first reaction is that labor was different this time.  Specifically, the 'mental toughness' that cross fit brings was such a big help during labor.  When I first came to observe a WOD my first reaction was how those women appeared to be struggling and suffering, and I thought it looked like the beginning of labor.

As to the pregnancy, I certainly felt more limber during the pregnancy because I normally don't do anything in the form of exercise the last three months or so.  It certainly helped emotionally, because staying in CF gave me a chance to get out and be with the fun group.   The days that I had CF I ate better and was in a better mood, for sure.

Tuesday nights just aren't the same anymore…'
