stride length

How long are the steps that you are taking?
Do you prefer baby steps or taking two stairs at a time?
Do you keep the same suicide pace from the get go or ramp up into the final 50m?
Do you ignore taking any steps at all and take the elevator to the top?
Do you take two steps forward, one step back, one to the side, three in a circle, and then two steps forward?
Or do you constantly vary your work rate and keep everyone guessing?

I would say, "It depends."

I recently cut 6 inches of length and buzzed a 6 square inch patch from the side of my hair.
I did it on a Tuesday, after talking about it for maybe a week.
I went all in- took it to a whole new level and jumped a whole flight of stairs.

September- I verbally committed to being a professional level CrossFitter and training towards competing as an individual.
Two weeks later- I told Jeremy Thiel that I couldn't make it to the required WOD time because of school and work commitments.
October 1st- I started consistently going to the 1PM Coaches Only/Dot Com workout 4 times a week.
October 8th- I formed a pact with Lisa Thiel "HDCP2012."
October 14th- I refilled my vitamin case for the first time since Regionals.
October 26th- I restocked on fish oil and post workout product from Stronger, Faster, Healthier.
November 7th- I joined Travis Holley's Strictly Strength class on Mondays and Wednesdays and joined the Coaches SWOD on Fridays.
November 20th- I returned to Next Level Chiropractic and Rehab to get treatment for put some muscles and joints into functioning order.
I took some interesting steps to getting fully into training again. I had to ease into it and ramp up accordingly. I'm stoked by the strides I've taken towards being a full time CrossFitter again.
