It's 2 1/2 hours until the CrossFit Open WOD gets announced. I have no patience so I can see that I will be unbearable leading up to the announcement. LOL!
I remember doing a training course a few years ago and the presenter had a saying, "don't argue scenarios."
With regard to these workouts, I have had a case of the 'what ifs'. What if the first workout is something like burpee box jumps? I wouldn't be able to score in the very first workout of the open which would be a disaster (sorry, I love all those reality TV shows like Masterchef etc where every little thing that goes wrong is a disaster. Is it ever that bad?) There is no point in arguing the scenarios as they haven't happened yet. Why worry about something that I have no control over? 'What ifs' are a waste of energy. I will treat it like a normal workout and do the best I possibly can; if I have to scale, I have to scale. Afterall, it's me against me.
