If you were at the gym yesterday, you got to experience the “Real Life” WOD.
For those that weren’t, it was a workout that you didn’t know the movements or the length until 5 seconds before we said “GO”.
How would you pace that? Did you have time to come up with a strategy? Was it frustrating at all?
In life, you never know what will be thrown your way. Are you going to come across a car accident and have to pull someone from an overturned car? Maybe you’ll be hiking and have to outrun a bear.
Workouts like “Real Life” help you prepare for the unknown and unknowable. Quick thinking on your feet. Able to manage energy resources and still leave some for the next thing (whatever that next thing may be).
I hope you got some mental training from yesterday.
