Grind. Intensity. Play.
I am entered in the 2019 CrossFit Open. I am not ready for it. In fact it will probably be my worst effort yet. But I’m in, as much as it’s a crazy circus, it’s our CrossFit Circus and I must give myself to the wild ride.
Every year I witness moderately sane people become anxious obsessive sober the course of 5 weeks. Anticipation. Expectation. Fear. Denial. Frustration. Excitement. Exhaustion. Relief. Every week the same emotional cycle.
I have no intention of qualifying for the @crossfitgames this year. I do intend to video each workout live to share with you all. My gift to you is my strategy, experience, mistakes and successes. There will be the full tapestry of learning opportunities. I’ll review what I did, what worked, where I could have improved, what I loved and hated...all the nitty gritty to help you improve your own experience of each Open workout. I don’t ever plan to repeat a workout. That’s become my philosophy for the Open, otherwise you end up spending a whole week preparing and tapering for on workout...it’s becomes a vicious cycle that wastes life, fitness, energy and sanity. When you do your Open workouts this year, I say commit to doing them once, giving them your all, then getting on with your life. Otherwise the experience will devour you and spit you out the other end, exhausted, frustrated and disenchanted. That is not the point of the Open...1 sleep til first wod announcement. Before the circus begins, set your own goals for the Open, make sure they’re qualitative goals, experiential goals, not just outcome orientated goals! Then go play full-out, give your best, surrender the results, be a happy grown-up! Good luck!
