Necessary to work skills – Mon 1.08.18

 In W.O.D.

It’s a hard thing to do, not all WODs can be like Coach Phil’s Saturday WOD, but sometimes it’s necessary to slow down.  Slow your intensity, sweat a little less, and work skills a little bit more to improve your fitness.  Scaling is not a problem (heck, I scaled today’s WOD to the intermediate version), we all need to slow down at times, work skills and movements were not looking forward to, so we can become fitter, stronger, faster, etc.
