Hardest workout ever, maybe

Wednesday morning.  5:00AM Alarm goes off.  Flash back....

Last week 4 days of crossfit, 3 hours of tennis, 2 weight lifting classes, 9 hours of running.
Crappy sleep Friday, Worse sleep Saturday, Crappy sleep Sunday, Sleep in Monday but try to work out Monday afternoon but no energy and suffer through coughing and wheezing.
Tuesday 2 mile jog and 1 mile sprint with burpees ever half mile.  Can't hardly breath for next hour.

Back to the present:

Now I wake, feel like crap but what do you do.  Do you go back to sleep?  Do you make up excuses? No, you remember the video from Mat Fraser.  "I am going to do today what other people are not willing to.  So tomorrow, I can do what you can't"

No energy while doing back squats but I do what I can.
Then, lucky for me the metcon was just a 30 pushups, 30 air squats, 30 sit ups every 5 minutes with running for distance in between.  I really thought I was going to die for the next 2 hours.  I could hardly stand up.

Ask your self, what are you doing today that makes you stronger, faster, smarter, fitter or healthier than you competition, tomorrow.

Sometimes competition is not a person but just life.  Every day we do nothing to get better, we die twice as much.
