Thursday: DNF!

Thursday: DNF!

Thursday: DNF!

Three letters that no CrossFitter wants to write on the whiteboard.

ChipperWODDNF stands for “Did not finish”. It is the score that one writes on the board when you’re charged with a task based workout such as a chipper and you run into a hard time cap. A perfect example is yesterday’s chipper WOD.

Most people will associate a ‘DNF’ with a huge failure but it can have a positive side to it. Think of it like this. Any time that you have to put up the dreaded ‘DNF’ that means that you’ve tried something that you were unable to accomplish. It also means that there is still room for growth. You know that with CrossFit there’s always more to achieve preventing it from getting stale :). That knowledge should put a fire in your belly and make you hungry for goat work. So the next time that you DNF (and we’ve all done it). Make sure you come out of that experience with the right frame of mind. Don’t focus on feeling ashamed. Focus on feeling motivated to improve. That’s what growth is all about.
