That I have officially set a record for how long a crossfit athlete can be THIS close to a muscle up and keep missing it. Everyone in the gym (including me) knows I am physically able to do it, but for some reason there is a subconscious mental block that won’t go away.
I’ve been a competitive athlete since I was 4 or 5, how the heck can I not deal with this mental block? I’m pretty dang frustrated. I have been working towards one for so long it seems and heck, I’ve even DREAMED (yes, dreamed) of muscle ups before. Like straight up in my sleep. How’s that for wanting something badly? Where this subconscious mental block is coming from I don’t know.
Maybe by London 2012 they will make “Missing Muscle Ups Consecutively Like a Little Pansy” an Olympic category because, my friends, I would win the gold medal.
(sigh). The Lord as my witness, I will keep fighting until it happens. And then when it happens? I’ll keep fighting some more to master it. But right now, the frustration is marinating and it’s no fun at all.
