The following “Saturday Stolen Post” comes from CrossFit Medina. It’s a great read that I may have missed if one of you awesome souls had not sent it my way, so thank you. In the future, if you find something you dig, or you did something you dig, send it.

My daughter scraped her knee last summer and, of course, we ran to her rescue with Band-Aids… you know, the Princess kind.
The boo-boo healed up nicely, but then even the most benign incident required the same level of stat care. There was something comforting to her about that Band-Aid. It helped her. Even though she didn’t really need it.
I see something similar happening at the gym now. We’re using band aids when we may not need them anymore. No, I’m not talking about the magical adhesive bandages from Johnson & Johnson. I’m talking about those bands we all contort ourselves into daily to aid in our pull-ups.
Maybe you need the bands. Many of you do.
But I suspect that many of you are healed but find comfort in the band…or are dressing a minor paper cut as though it’s a deep flesh wound. Maybe you’re afraid of the pain of tearing the band aid off. Trust me, the quicker you do it the less painful it is.
