The athletes at this year’s CrossFit Games were suprised with an extra day of workout 2 days earlier than expected. The first WOD was a grueling 2 hour triathalon that involved an ocean swim, a bike (half of the ride was through sand and the bike had to be carried) and a grueling run up and down a scorching course nicknamed “microwave mountain” due to the effect of the heat off of the hot rock.

This was awesome. We train for the unknown and the unknowable, we prepare ourselves for anything that life might throw at us. It is more than physical¬†preparation, it is¬†preparation for being able to maintain our mental composure through tough obstacles that we can’t expect, training for life.
