This is a great lesson, in many ways, for all of us. A lot of things get in our way in training and in life. Shoot for it all "as RX," but be ready to scale as appropriate. For most of us, CF is about improving ourselves, seeing what we're made of and making the rest of life that much better. Push yourself when you can, back off when you need to. It's all about sustainability for us. Everything has a cost/benefit ratio, let's maximize the benefit, and having the right attitude will carry you a long way.
