The 2018 CrossFit Open: 18.Done!

The 2018 CrossFit Open is Over!

Fridays (Guam time) are going to be boring but at least Dave Castro is not jerking us around with mystery workouts. We are back to our regular programming but I have a lot of takeaways from this years open.

Movements

Surprisingly, we didn’t do two movements that were in the Open since 2011. Snatch and wall balls were not featured in a workout this year. They will more than likely be in next years Open.

My Placement

My goal was to be on the first page (for Guam) but that didn’t happen. I placed 62nd, my lowest placement in the open. Either I’m getting worse or everyone else is getting more fit.

My Takeaway

I placed 62nd because I didn’t do the work. I can’t blame anyone or anything except myself. It sucks but I do have a plan. My conditioning needs a lot of work. This past year, I have been doing a lot of Olympic lifting and not much cardio. I need to find a balance between these two and I need to work in more gymnastics work as well. I want that muscle up! I have a full year to work on these things and hopefully I can get back to the front page of the leader board. I hope you hit some goals in this years Open and if you didn’t, we have a lot of time to work on it.

Lift Heavy and Level Up
