To be honest I was pretty apprehensive, there were nerves all week, an upset stomach, and some mad wide-awake periods in the night… this was all in leading up to my first CrossFit Open experience.
I was coming up to my first year anniversary at CCW, and I was vaguely aware of the hype that the CrossFit Open pertained. I didn’t initially sign up but I had a continuous stream of experienced CrossFitters and coaches encouraging me to participate, stressing that I would have the best time, that I will achieve new goals (that may have seemed unattainable), and that I would push past my comfort zone. So finally a week out from the Open I did it. Scaled workouts were an option, so I really had no excuse.
