150131 Saturday 1000 Sisyphus

Athletes,

We will be moving on 2 February. We really need your support on that day at 1300 to start get all the equipment out of the Natalus room and into the Cardio Studio and viva-versa with our equipment. There will be free pats on the back given out by Dean, Cheyenne and Lisa. They may even chalk their hands first for a bonus.

The body challenge is still alive and well. I have heard good news from many people about their progress. Congrats! Remember the 7th will be a pot luck where we can put a good dent in those gains we made. That week I will be available to make another weigh-in so if you can’t make it on Wed-Thurs-Fri please let me know and we can do something for you.

This Saturday will be a Fight Tonight CrossFit administered Weightlifting Seminar at Reebok CrossFit Sentinel One in Hannam. Please come out. If you attempted the Olympic Lifting total you probably see where your weaknesses are!

Sisyphus

One sees merely the whole effort of a body
straining to raise the huge stone, to roll it
and push it up a slope a hundred times over;
one sees the face screwed up, the cheek tight
against the stone, the shoulder bracing the
clay-covered mass … . At the very end of his
long effort measured by sky-less space and
time-without-depth, the purpose is achieved.
Then Sisyphus watches the stone rush down
in a few moments toward that lower world
whence he will have to push it back up again
towards the summit. He goes back down to
the plain.

Rather, in that pained
expression and wearied walk,
You see the face of freedom,
triumph and agency.

Even in those darkest moments when we feel that “our whole being
is exerted towards accomplishing nothing,” we are still
agents in our world. Even “Sisyphus is happy.”

And so it will be. Happiness will ensue in the ending of effort…but it does not end, your day simply stops until you walk back down the hill to roll that boulder back up.
