The 2013 CrossFit Games Open is done and over. I have to admit...I am a little bit sad that it's over :( The weekly workouts, the anticipation, the pain, the competition, the camaraderie...these are all things that I love and will miss...onto training for next year.
All in all I am competing with myself....where I was last year in my physical fitness and abilities...and hoping that I've made some gains since then. It is clear that I still need to get those darn double-unders...and can certainly be stronger...but to be perfectly honest...although I would have liked to have done better...I am pleased...and here's why: I spent the last year and a half working on strength and Olympic lifting technique, and I don't regret it one bit...all of the knowledge and skills that I have aquired are irreplaceable and have given me the opportunity to be a better coach, crossfitter, and training partner.
Now with that being said, I did compromise my metabolic conditioning, but I am okay with that. Now I am ready to get back at it and maybe keep a more balanced approach when it comes to strength and conditioning...and crossfitting. I figure by next year, I will certainly be in better shape physically and even mentally...because all in all crossfitting pushes me to be better. It's me against me.
