Katrin Davidsdottir: Give the CrossFit Open all you’ve got, and finish strong
Weekend warriors and even working mums have been grinding their way through the 2016 CrossFit Games Open in the last 5 weeks. How does reigning Fittest Woman on Earth Katrin Davidsdottir push herself through after already attainting such high levels?
In this final week of the Open, she focused the conversation on finishing strong.
“You never want to leave any regrets. It’s the final kick so you have to go strong,” said Davidsdottir on completing the CrossFit Open 16.5 Workout.
“When I think of my final event of the Games, I couldn’t even feel my body, but knowing it was the last workout gave me this extra adrenaline kicky,” she continued.
Davidsdottir stresses that if you gave all five WODs your best effort, you should feel proud and have no regrets. However, Davidsdottir admitted that she still goes through a learning curve over the last few weeks.
She looked back at 16.3 as a workout that taught her about strategy, recognizing in hindsight that even though she gave her all, had she attacked the WOD with a different strategy, she may have seen different results.
When recounting 16.4, though, she got more introspective.
“I felt that the first time I did the workout (in 16.1) I was a little bit cautious, and I don’t like that. I like to be fearless. So I went and did the workout again, giving it everything I had that time, and when I ended on the floor, I was that much happier.”
And although the Open is coming to a close, you can still keep up with her training and Regionals preparations by following her on Instagram and Twitter.
