The Crossfit Open Competition has begun. The last year of training has been filled with peaks and valleys, but I will say that I feel better than I ever have about competing. I believe it comes down to preparation. I have prepared for this competition for years. Every time I came in to workout, I was training for this moment. I prepared with functional movements, moving large loads as fast as possible. I did some strength training, endurance training and pain threshhold training. I train for the unknown, so I train everything.
I train to minimize my weaknesses. I train to maintain and grow my strengths. I train so I will be prepared for things that are outside my comfort zone. I know I am better today than I was yesterday, and I have made those improvements daily. Crossfit makes me better for the Open and for all of the things that this unpredictable life may throw at me on a daily basis.
I will continue to train. I will continue to make steady progress forward. I may not know what is coming, but I will be ready for anything. I train for the unknown, and I know I am prepared.
