Imagine for a moment that you've just walked in to see your dream WOD on the whiteboard. That combination of movements that you rock, at reps that are easily in your range, and weights that you're the boss of. Perhaps you don't even need to imagine it- maybe it's happened.
Upon completing of this dream WOD, your time goes on the board and you're so far ahead of everyone that you're certain not even Aaron will catch you. You check the facebook page when you get home and find that this is true.
You were perfect, right?
Was there one teeny-weenie little thing you could have done better? One smoother transition, one rep clearly performed better than "the grey area', one less breath before you picked up the bar. Sure there was.
So even though you kicked this dream WOD's ass, you coukld have done it **better**.
We can always DO BETTER.
It's what we strive for every day- that "better". Better than before, better than yesterday, better than last time.
We DON'T strive for "better than Abcdef" because each day during training we're not comparing ourself to her. We're comparing to ourselves and ourselves only.
There's always room for improvement. Even when it's in your wheelhouse there is room for better.
Work to get there.
