For Those Worried about 12.4..

I wrote this last year when the Open unveiled 11.4 (60 bar facing burpees, 30 OHS at 120#, & 10 MUs). Still has a lot of relevance this week for anyone who saw 12.4 and thought "Oh crap, Im screwed..."

Your rank and the number of reps you finish of 11.4 in the 2011 Games won’t really matter 20 years from now. Your attitude and willingness to fight through the workout will.

What really matters is that if we head into it with the right attitude and desire to compete with everything we’ve got, we will all walk away better people for fighting to the final second.

We improve ourselves and our lives.

That’s what CrossFit is about.

    "And it hit me – everyone is feeling this way."

    I've found this to be incredibly true for triathlon. No matter how fast or slow you are, it hurts by the time you get to the run.
    Instead of listening to the negative voices in my head, my mantra has become "If it's hurting me, it's killing them!"
    If your goal is to go hard then you've got to become friends with the hurt.

    Nothing worth earning was ever easy.

    Great way to think about it.
