I started this blog a few years ago to share some of my thoughts, feelings and life achievements. I initially started as I was getting asked a lot about what do I do? How did you get ‘good’ at CrossFit? What do you eat? What programme do you follow? Etc So I thought I would write down in the form of a blog/diary so you guys could follow my journey.
I haven’t always been the sporty one in the family, in fact I was probably the laziest of me and my two sisters yet when I discovered CrossFit my whole World changed. I quickly changed from being not interested in sport to wanting to become the best. I would spend every second I could in the box asking people to show me how to do things and then not leaving until I had achieved it.
People always joked saying “Lucy has a bed out the back, she never leaves”. But every second I spent in that box has paid off as now I can say I have been to the CrossFit Meridian Regionals 3 time, 2 individual and 1 team! I am so proud of this!
At the same time as competing as a CrossFit athlete I was also luckily enough to compete in powerlifting taking 4 World Records with the British Powerlifting Crew. Again, something I am so proud of.
Over the last few years I have learnt that to be a successful CrossFit athlete you have to have the Desire, Drive, and Determination, alongside the will to make sacrifices to become one of the best. And above all realise it will not happen overnight… Success takes time! This is what I have tried to discuss in my blogs!
I hope you enjoy my blog and enjoy taking my journey with me!
