How quickly you can forget.
I remember when I just started Crossfit, 2005, everything was new and exciting, you woke up each day anticipating the daily W.O.D from .com and you let it rip. Slowly as you grow and learn the Crossfit moves you start picking what you like don't like what your good at what your not good at. This is a huge enabler that will keep you stuck. Also I could remember watching people getting caught up in flawless form that their times were slow as molasses. I would just grip and rip and let it ride. This allowed amazing times and personal records to stack up. Slowly as you learn the technique and get bogged down in what's right what's wrong you begin to slow down and manage movement and speed.
Competition lesson #1- Flawless technique in a met-con will hold you back. Explained: Weightlifting technique and etiquette are good for Olympic-lifts and Power lifting but don't always translate to Crossfit Sport.
