So The 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games Open has come to and end, and now being a week from the last announcement you may be thinking what now?
Reflect on the moments and the experiences of the open, celebrate your achievements and learn from your failures. If you got further than you thought in a wod celebrate it and if you hit a PR or got your first bar muscle up/pull up/handstand push up/double under celebrate it! If you think they are small achievements not worthy of celebration you are wrong, every achievement is worth celebrating because you are enjoying the process of becoming healthy, fit, and working towards your goals. Enjoy the process.
And as I said before, learn from your failure, it’s important to fail because it means you are attempting things that are challenging and when you learn you overcome challenges and become a better you.
You’ve just spent the past 5 weeks stressing about what awful workout Dave Castro was going to announce on Thursday. And then you likely were stressed out all day until you got to do the workout. Now it’s time to relax, decompress, and have some fun. Do some fun workouts with things you like and most importantly workout with friends! Do this for the next few weeks and enjoy the point of CrossFit, getting healthy and enjoying it with friends.
Set a goal for next years open and begin your journey to accomplish the goal. Maybe you want to RX every open wod next year, and that might mean you have to learn muscle-ups and handstand push-ups, well good news you have just under a year left to start learning and working on those movements. Setting a goal NOW will prevent you from going into a post new years resolution type funk where you were on point for the first month and then dropped off, don’t let the open be a failed new years resolution.
