Phobos and Deimos

The sons of Ares (the god of war) they were representations of fear and terror.

Phobos is the root of phobia.

Given that during this time many are filled with fear and terror this reference is important.

Courage is not the absence of fear, it is action in the presence of fear.

It also brings to mind a quote from our current book club book “If It Bleeds”

“Fascination is fears twin brother.”

So very true in CrossFit, competition, anything that pushes usto the edge.

I experience fear in every single workout. I know what I have to do in order to achieve the goal and it’s a fearful endeavor, Everytime.

Thats probably why I keep going back to the well for more and more.

I am fearful of doing it, being successful, embarrassing myself but at the same time it’s balanced the desire for the knowledge.

The knowledge of can I? Can I do this? Am I good enough?

That’s CrossFit, that’s life.


Phobos and Deimos

Simple but brutal
Push ups
Sit ups
Step ups
