Masters 40 – 45
Last year I was booted out in Week 4 and I didn't realise that I could still see my rankings via the Custom Leaderboard feature. Unfortunately this means I have no statistics for Week 4 and 5 of last year's Open and can't compare against this year. Instead I have graphed my rankings for this year. It is such a shame that I had a crappy week 2 because all my other weeks have been fairly consistent.
I have to say that I have really enjoyed the Open this year. There are more people around my level doing it this year as opposed to 'the guns' and 1 or 2 others. Last year was great and I'm so incredibly proud of myself for doing it but there were times when I thought that I was out of my element. This year has been fun and it has been a blast to judge and cheer everyone on.
For me, it is a big deal to sign up and have everyone see my score and how I compare to other people in my box as well as in Australia and the world. I could have easily not registered and still attempt the WODs as RXD or even scaled ... there would have been less pressure but it has been good for me to move out of my comfort zone.
The funny thing for me is that my proudest moment in this Open has been Week 2. It's odd that a WOD I got 0 reps for in 3 attempts is what I'm most proud of but it made me realise that when things are tough I don't give up even if it means failing over and over again.
