Day 16: Excuses are like....well you know

"An excuse becomes an obstacle in your journey to success when it is made in place of your best effort or when it is used as the object of the blame."

I straight up sucked at the WOD today.  During the first round, I felt a tinge of pain in my groin. Then it became a sharp pain and I could feel some tightness.  So I tried stretching it out and it continued to hurt, but I told myself I would never quit a WOD so I tried to continue.  I made adjustments of course and didn't give 100% but I did finish the workout.  To say I was disappointed in myself is an understatement, I was pissed.   
From Monday's WOD

As I drove home I started to rationalize with myself.  Had I continued to go 100% I could have pulled my groin which would sideline me for a few weeks, meaning no patriots triathlon, little CrossFit, and prolly some weight gain.  So, I prolly did the right thing and as I write this I can feel some soreness in the groin.  I'll try to stretch it out tomorrow and make sure I can go strong.  

So I guess the quote I should have written is "Better a bad excuse, than none at all. "
