Every year the CrossFit OPEN challenges us and pushes us past our comfort zone. This is where the magic happens and we really saw that this week at ODIN!
18.3 was a real challenge physically and mentally for most. This workout included so many high level skills that it required you to be good at everything. For most, there was at least one movement that you were saying "I can't do that". It would have been so easy for you to give up right there, BUT you didn't! You showed and gave it your all. And for so many of you you surprised yourself and accomplished way more than you thought you would. Whether it was your first pull up, muscle up, double under...or just making it farther in the workout than you thought; everyone proved to themselves that you are stronger and faster than you give yourself credit for.
This is what I love so much about the OPEN. You push yourself and try things you normally wouldn't. And boy did we see some amazing performances this week!
Keep up all your hard work and stay consistent. Progress takes time and consistency. But with a little patience, image what you will accomplish next year!
Cheers to the 2018 OPEN!
