This last weekend was amazing.......a HUGE learning experience. Something I will never forget. I went in WANTING to win the CrossFit Games and left knowing how to win. Disappointment can be viewed many different ways.....the way I viewed this was more as a step in the right direction. I made it to the largest stage in CrossFit and in front of more people then have ever seen the sport. To be a part of this was unreal.
Mentally I looked at this like an event that I should win. Once it started I began realizing what I need to do to win. I have walked into many competitions knowing what can be thrown at me and how to train for it.....because I can in my box. Hear i was thrown curve balls. I assumed what we would be lifting long and heavy, and thought there was no way that we would be moving light weight around so I trained heavy. Unfortunately, I was wrong, and heavy weight did not come up until after I was eliminated. Making me realize I need to be ready for everything, not just what I THINK will happen. I need to make it all the way.
I also will come into the comp with more confidence. This happens by being prepared, I felt as prepared as I could be and now learned how wrong I was. I would not have changed anything I did but now know that i will train smarter, therefore allowing me to be confident in everything and prepared for anything.
I will have more insights to come on the comp. For now those are my thoughts. I will get better and be ready for 2012. I will be ready!!!!!!
