This year my goal for the 2017 @crossfitgames Open was to complete every workout and to enjoy it. Sounds simple but is exactly what I needed.
I have participated in the open every year since 2012 and every year prior to this I've failed to achieve that. I got injured and/or fell out of love with the sport and finished saying I wouldn't enter the following year... and still did.
This year, I loved every second of it and cannot wait for next year. My training and performance was no better (probably worse) and the same things that held me back continue to hold me back but this year it didn't matter. In 2017 it was my mindset that made the difference - the focus on the unmeasurable and unseen.
Yeah I still care about my score, I take pride in my performance and yeah I still want to win but ultimately it was about me and how I felt, not how I did.
Going into the Open I knew what I could do, I know my body and I knew where I was at and I owned it. There was no need to berate myself or worry about anything. I just took each one in my stride, reflected and took the lessons that went with it.
I did exactly what I encourage my team to do. I practiced what I preached and it bloody worked.
