Consistency is key.  Have a strategy when tackling this and every other workout.  Always think about what you want to complete before you stop for a rest and DO IT!  Imagine that in each workout you are actually trying to have your best performance.  Imagine you are in a real competition against the clock and against yourself.  I’ve been doing a ton of self talk lately during workouts, especially when i’m alone.  it’s tough to do a workout alone.  So I imagine tons of stuff.  If it’s a HERO wod, I picture the actual soldiers/fire fighters/Seals and what they went through on daily basis.  Or I picture that I’m on a team and in a competition and they need me to get all the points.  Anything really works,as long as it’s gets you moving and not just stopping because you have a  tiny bit of discomfit. Have the Consistency in each workout, not only of body, pace, intensity but of mind too.

Some workouts/days you will need to approach differently.  Say you’ve had a few tough days, whether it’s workout related, sleep, work or just crap.   They you’ve shown up to move.  Lower your weights, work on form, modify the movements and be glad that you are there moving!  Don’t worry so much about your score, or what your neighbour is doing. Focus on what you need.  Again be consistent in this approach too. Allow yourself that freedom to scale back and know you are going to do that before you arrive for the workout.
