Well… I am officially “Opened” out. At first the prospect of a 6 week crossfit challenge sounded exciting and fun, but I have to be honest: I’m sick of it. This last workout was the most creative and intriguing in my estimation, yet I still found myself lacking the drive to get up for it. Maybe this is all part of the master plan, to test people’s mental endurance as well as their physical, but I think it’s more of a miscalculation of interest. This topic has been a pretty popular one of late in many of the gym communities I frequent, and no one seems to be arguing the contrary. Everyone is talking about how the last month has altered their training, sucked them into a competition only mentality, and psychologically drained them. Luckily I have still been training as I otherwise would have, but I feel the psychological drain for sure. My score this WOD was 143 and I hated every single burpee of the second round. Can’t wait for this to be over.
In happier news, we have another Storyline submission, this time from Dael in Israel. Check it out below.
