Fear is the mind killer

"The Hardest CrossFit workout I've ever done" - John after today's wod

Workout of the Day

“20-Minute Work Capacity Test”
(aka, “Sage at 20″)
As many rounds and reps as possible in 20 minutes of:
20 Thrusters (135/95)
20 Pull-ups
20 Burpees

Want inspiration? Josh Bridges completes 6 rounds of this in 20 minutes. A female Games athlete  has completed four rounds plus 17 thrusters. For most male mortals, anything over 3 rounds is good, and anything over 4 rounds is extremely impressive. For females, anything over 2 rounds is worth bragging about, and anything over 3 rounds is really impressive. Reflect on these numbers when you are done for a true appreciation of the levels of fitness/athleticism demonstrated by some of the elite CrossFit athletes.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.”

-The Litany against Fear, Dune
