“Do something everyday that scares you”
– A little saying I try to follow, and defiantly fulfilled last night as I ventured South-west to meet up with Harri, her intern Marlo and a blooming group of pregnant ladies all keen to keep up crossfitting during their pregnancy’s.
I have delivered workshops before but they have either been exercise and movement driven and or with the help of Andrew, Kate or Steven.
This was the first time for me sitting in front of an audience discussing the benefits of continued training, how to look at adaptions and scales and what special consideration would be needed. All by myself.
If I said I was cool calm and collected I would be a cheat, as in fact I was a total bag of nerves.
Despite having an order and plan, under the spotlight it all went a bit freestyle-e. I think my brain had a bit of a panic so my mouth took over for a while. Once I had relaxed though, things started to feel a bit more chilled and into my mo-jo.
I still have a bit of work to do! No matter I know now that I need to work on speaking under pressure and keeping to the plan.
It’s all a learning curve.
I hope the ladies found the information useful. It was a great help for me to sit in front of them and has given me tones of food for thought and things I need to work on and develop.
Thanks again Crossfit Bold.
