Holy CANNOLI. The Live OPEN was amaze-balls. I was really hoping that Camille would have won the Live OPEN. She is a BAMF on CTB! So graceful and beautiful. I was honestly mesmerized watching her. She inspires me to be able to do CTB. Her poor little hands though. I can only imagine her pain. I wait for the day that my hands rip. Isn’t that awful?! Even though she didn’t win the Live OPEN, she redid her workout and won with 404 reps. Only 394 reps better than me. Werk honey, werk.
So, the day came and went when I had to complete 14.2. My goal was 10. I got 10. HOLLAAAAA. I really tried to get CTB, but God didn’t want me to get them. My arms just stopped moving and wouldn’t bend to pull myself up. I was awesome at swinging though! If that was a movement, I’d be #1 on the leaderboard. Stupid me forgot to post my score on the site. I could kick myself.
This week I’m looking forward to 14.3. I’ll be doing it on Friday morning. Maybe it will be something I’ll actually be able to do. Give us your $20 they said, the OPEN is for everyone, they said.
Let me know how you guys did on 14.2, I’d love to hear your results!
I actually love this CrossFit tumblr. Everything on here is so accurate and hilarious! http://whatshouldcrossfitterscallme.tumblr.com/post/78958349307/when-someone-says-theyll-only-get-a-10-in-14-2
So I’ve been slacking a little bit on my blog this week. I have had exams and lots of school work to do. Thank GOD that my spring break started today. I need it.
Anywho- 14.1 HOTLANTA. I watched the Live OPEN while taking my Eucalyptus Spearmint/Epsom salt bath. My muscles were craving that type of relaxation. I was rooting for Fisher and was glad that he won. It was amazing to see both competitor’s form and strategies. As I continued to watch, I fell in love with CrossFit a little more.
I didn’t sign up for the open until after I watched it. After seeing the Open, I figured, what the hell, it’s only $20 and I can see how I rank in the world. After 14.1 was over, I signed up immediately and prayed to The Lord above that I would be able to do SOME double unders. Double unders are one of my weaknesses, so I knew I was doomed from the get-go. I can’t string them totally together yet and I break often because I get too excited, but I’m practicing them! I was dreading the WOD the entire time. I knew I wasn’t going to do that well. The Doubles KILLED ME. I wasted a lot of time by doing, “single, single, double”. I mean A LOT OF TIME. It probably took me about 3-4 minutes with those. Then I moved on to the Power Snatch. I never realized how ugly I do them. I focused too much on having the perfect form that I wasn’t moving fast or efficient. When time was up, I only had 90 reps. I was pretty disappointed, but I wasn’t redoing the WOD. My forearms were on fire from the previous WOD (listed in the blog before this), and they were starting to kill me during the Power Snatches. Ultimately, I’m glad I signed up for the Open and am excited, but dreading the unknown WODS…
10 Minute AMRAP
3o Double Unders
15 Power Snatch 75/55
And now 14.2. It’s over for me too since I can’t do Chest To Bar. Cool. Time to kick it up another notch.
