Every time you drop the bar or rest the clock moves on.
Just a few quick breaths you tell yourself. 15-20 seconds float on by.
Will you find a way to will yourself to continue the workout, pay attention to form and adhere to your pre-game WOD plan?
You don’t have to go all out 100% of the time, often that will just cause you to burn out and waste precious time clicking away on the clock while you try to recover. Make a plan and stick to it. If you are going to do your thrusters in sets of 5, don’t settle for just hitting out 1 rep and then taking a few breaths, get through all five, then take your few breaths.
Find your pace, you want to finish as fast as possible. That is not the same as starting as fast as possible.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
