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

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.
