Earlier today I spoke to Jeremy Thiel and he called me out on two separate facets of my life. One, I have completely neglected my CrossFit blog. I plan to rectify this situation by updating more often considering the increased fervor created by the impending CrossFit Games. Two, Jeremy enlightened me with his infinite wisdom that my problem in preparing for the Games is that I have very little patience.

With that being said, I have decided that I rush too many aspects of my life. Education, adulthood and CrossFit are all subjects of my life that I have little patience for. At barely 22 year old I have my whole life ahead of me and there is no reason to rush my development. The topic of CrossFit has not left my mind for the 2 years and 9 months immersed my life in it. Last year all I wanted to do is make the Games on and individual ticket. Missing the cut by a few seconds at the regional last year only increased my persistence towards my goal to be one of the new generation hot shot CrossFitters. Today, Jeremy Thiel clarified my thoughts; I have little patience. Recently, I came to the conclusion that the best CrossFitters have invested their time in CrossFit before aking it to the top.

I have Games quality strength, speed and mental capacity. The piece of the puzzle missing is the time invested. So what’s my plan? Continue on the track that I am on, but have the patience to let the necessities of the CrossFit elite come to me in due time.

“Patience is waiting. Not passively waiting. That is laziness. But to keep going when the going is hard and slow - that is patience.”

you can be an elite crossfitter Andy, you just need to know when to turn it on and off.
