So I’d like to take a mulligan on yesterday’s CF Level 1 test. why? Because I failed. A passing score is 35, what did I get? 34 One stupid point!
For me the crazy part is that I got certified 2 years ago, have been to 7 competitions, the gymnastics, olympic lifting and kids cert oh and I just got home from the 2010 CrossFit Games I couldn’t pass the Level 1 cert test. WHAT!?!?!
I thought I should feel embarrassed, shamed, like a big failure. But I didn’t. I realized that the cert is taught to the test, and I hadn’t taken the cert in 2 years. Over time I have developed my own ‘style’ towards training, and while I embody CrossFit, I don’t use 100% perfect CrossFit talk/terms. I’m a GREAT trainer, I just use my own style.
The good news is that I have til December 2011 to pass before I lose my level 1 certification. What will I do next time? I’m going to retake the level 1 cert 1) it’s been two years so it’s probably not a bad idea to refresh and relearn 2)I’ll get back into speaking CF speak and pass the test.
The point of the story…..I may get knocked down, but I’m getting back up!
Today’s WOD: REST DAY!
