I have said it before and I know I will say it again (and again). A couple that sweats together, stays together.
I met up with my main squeeze today for my first 1:1 coaching session with him at his local CrossFit Box. I have been breathing and flowing on my blue yoga mat for the past 3-4 months - so needless to say, hardest.workout.ever.
But amidst the sweat + heart beating out of my throat + hating with sheer force jump roping double unders + wanting to be done after round 1 and having 7 more to go... what really happened was we sweat together, we spent quality time together, he was my coach and I got to enjoy the loving-his-life-boyfriend of mine, when he is smack dab in his passion meets best life zone. And, as I came to my last round of the workout (Chris finished over 9 minutes before me but stood there cheering me on), I did two of these special jump rope styles in a row. We both paused, I looked up smiling and he was so proud of me. Made it all worth while. Sweet love in a sweat.
