hero wod

Im new to this so sorry if this isnt the right thread to post. Ive been performing the wod's for 2 months now (just started my third) how often can i try to beat my times and loads for the girls and hero wod's? Ive done numerous ones once but dont know how long to wait before attempting them again. I have improved drastically already and love this but I dont want to burn out on them by doing them too often.

Re: hero wod

Not often at all? In my 3.5 years of crossfitting, I haven't hit all of the girls. I only did Isabel for the first time during the Open. Not as impressive as my Grace, but at least it's something I can put into my books. Most I've done for a single girl is probably 3. There's likely a lot of them I haven't even attempted. Hero wods aren't something you should do often either.

Just don't focus on them too much.

Give it time. Your improvement visibility will come in the form of WOD's that make you think: "oh damn...", because that's what your body USED to not be capable of. Then you crush it.

Those small realizations each day are the biggest motivator for me. Doing feats that I used to not be able to do. Sheer motivation.

Re: hero wod

You can hit benchmarks every 12 weeks or so. My recommendation is to document EVERYTHING - 1RM, 3RM, 5RM, etc. loads, times. So you have good data to compare to. I even keep an online journal of how I felt during the WOD, document injuries, rep schemes, etc.
