Taking a Step Back
I chose on Friday to reduce the number of rounds. I know that I most probably would have been able to get through 10 rounds but I also knew that we had a humdinger of a workout on Saturday. Personally, I would rather smash a hero workout than a normal WOD purely because it's a benchmark one that we will repeat sometime down the track. I made the choice to only do 5 rounds. It was a hard decision to make as I felt like I was cherry picking but, in all honesty, I was sore and tired and wasn't up for it mentally.
I was glad that I made that choice during Saturday's sesson. A lot of people didn't complete the workout in the alloted time. In saying that, I scaled so I was challenged but I never doubted I wouldn't make it (apart from a little nausea in some parts). I guess it is important to learn the days you can step back and the days you can step up and hopefully it will make me a better athlete in the long run.
