    Press – 5 x 60/65/67.5kg 12/7/4 x 50kg

    WOD – 75 x 25kg OHS

    5 sets not sure of time

    Had to laugh when Peter G racked the bar after a hard set and Stef asked him “How many reps?” “74” came the reply..FFS!!

    While this hasn’t diminished my love of overhead squats in the slightest, I’m pretty bummed out at not getting the reps out in 3 sets – my weakness was keeping the bar locked overhead, which I suspected it would be and who knows what happened on the second set! I’m looking forward to trying this one again soon 🙂

    A few thoughts on training from the last couple of days…

    At the risk of stereotyping, the typical Crossfitter is by nature competitive. We want to win, we want to beat our previous best effort, the person next to us, the person doing the same workout on the other side of the planet. At first glance this is great- a catalyst for achieving things that may not have been achieved without the drive to win. However there is a dark side to this approach that needs to be addressed and overcome.

    Children are also notoriously competitive. I see tears daily over board games, running races or who can brush their teeth the fastest. I also see kids avoid a competition if it is unlikely they will win. This is the darkside to competitiveness.

    On Wednesday night I was faced with a WOD that suited me and I looked forward to doing it. Despite it’s difficulty my mindset meant that I was able to push hard and come away with a fast time. I felt strong and fast and couldnt wait to train again.

    Fast forward 24 hours and it was the complete opposite. Faced with a WOD full of my weaknesses, I knew it was unlikely I would do that well (ie beat Stef). Self-doubt crept in, the suck factor went up, and I felt slow and awkward. It was not until the last 2 rounds of an 8 round wod that I came to the realisation that the real competition was with myself, and all I had to do to win was keep going.

    There are a few lessons I took out of these two days of training.

    1. You are going to have good workouts and bad workouts. Your true character is revealed in the bad workouts.

    2. Being competitive is great if it means you try to win everything, not if you avoid something for fear of losing or not doing well.

    3. CrossFit is a f##king bitch. One day you love it, the next day you swear you are never going to put yourself through that much pain again. F##K you sandbag get ups.

    4. Train your weaknesses. After the 2010 CF games showed him up, Mikko Salo did 30 mins of double unders every day for 4 months. No longer a weakness.

    5. You can always improve your strengths. Research shows to be elite at anything takes 10 000 hours deliberate practice. That’s 3 hours a day for 10 years.

    6. If you are not nervous before you train you do not train hard enough.

    Strength – Press 5-5-5 @ 30-32.5-35
    then 10-7-4 @ 25kg

    OHS 75 reps @ 20kg
    6.55 mins (20-10-10-10-10-10-5)

    Awesome effort Michelle – you ripped up todays wod and strength!! 😀
    Steve – still s**t scared before every WOD but the difference now is that I have developed more confidence in myself and my abilities to at least have the best go I can.
