Put Yourself Out There

Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet, just put yourself out there and compete.  You can easily get scared about the unknown.  It’s also difficult to think that you might not do well, you might lose.  You might even place last.  But you can do this, you can compete and you can learn.  You …

And Then There Was Two

Usually when I compete in Crossfit competitions, I compete alone.  Other people come from my gym to compete and watch, but we compete as individuals, sometimes even competing against eachother.  Recently, I had a chance to sign up for a team event.  I had some reservations about competing with someone else.  I always felt like …

Last weekend, I competed for the third time this season.  The last two competitions were successful for different reasons.  This third one was different.  I really felt like I could have done more had I not been injured.  As athletes, we learn to tolerate a fair amount of aches and pains along the way, but …

Competing Calmly

I just finished my first Crossfit competition with my emotions and nerves under control.  I feel so much better about my performances.  I did not even come close to winning and although I have been in that position before in smaller competitions, I feel better overall this time.  There was no worrying before the events, and …

I’m getting ready for a few competitions this season and one of the things that has haunted me in the past was feeling prepared.  There was always something that was missing in my skill set to leave me with some anxiety.  Although I have many weaknesses and things to improve, I still feel more prepared …
