🚨Warning: Cliche' post-CrossFit Open post🚨 Now that the open is over, I literally took all day yesterday to reflect on the last year - my first year actually training for the open. Most training sessions I never felt truly satisfied with where I was at. Always wanting more, bigger PRs, better times, etc. Even after a great training session the word "but..." would always makes its way into conversations with my coach because I always thought I should be better than where I was at. Never taking into consideration that I've only been doing CrossFit for under two years and only truly training for around 10 months. I have learned so much about training properly, programming, and myself as an athlete.
In the 2016 CrossFit Open I placed 501 in the North Central region. My goal this year was top 250, and I was able to exceed that goal by over 100 spots. I can actually say for what seems the first time in the last year that I'm proud of what I've done through training and the 2017 CrossFit Open.
All the bad days, failed lifts, slow times, sweat, sore muscles, achy joints, ripped & bloody hands, and tears were worth it. I do this for me and nobody else. I'm excited to see what this next training year will bring and how much more I can push myself physically and mentally 👌🏼💪🏼 #crossfitrestoration #theopenisover #2017crossfitopen #boxstar #greaterthanyesterday #competeeveryday #builttowin #ontonextyear #backtothegrind #holdthevision #trusttheprocess
