I got this from CrossFit Dublin, and it's got some really great points. CrossFit is not just a workout to a lot of us, it's a way of life. CrossFit requires a lot of mental toughness; in order to get better you have to identify and work on your weaknesses rather then avoid them. You have to leave your ego at the door, listen to your coaches and strive to get better each day. If you always find yourself skipping heavy days, 5k Run days, or Olympic Lifting and you only enjoy the longer met-cons that leave you laying on the floor... you are missing the point of CrossFit. A huge part of CrossFit is VARIANCE. If you skip heavy days you are missing an entire metabolic pathway and a large part of the results that come with the program.
To the untrained eye our workouts look random and unplanned, but I'm here to tell you there is nothing random about what we do at CFBT. These workouts are programmed weeks in advance with a long term goal in mind. We hit various elements, movements, time domains, priority workouts, couplets, triplets, chippers, single modality while also varying the implements. We go short, we go long, we go heavy, we go light and we go everywhere in between. If you routinely find yourself not wanting to come unless it's a "long cardio" style workout, force yourself to come in on a heavy day. Train your weaknesses if you have extra time in your warm-up or cool-down; and never underestimate the power of good technique.
