I’m writing this now that the open is over YAY ITS OVER!
10 rounds for time of:
9 thrusters, 95/65 lb.
Unlike the other workouts, this one was super simple. It was definitely the type of workout that I would lose count in the middle of and be like “wait what round am I even on?” lol! So thankfully the judges with their scorecards were the best at keeping track of all of that. Which was good!
Friday night! 3-2-1 GO!
This one was interesting… I was afraid of pushing too hard because I didn’t want to redline myself into a place where I wouldn’t be able to breathe and keep a decent pace going. Ten rounds is a lot! 90 thrusters, yo. And 350 dubs.
10:14 was my time.
Better than I thought I was going to do! I hate couplets, but I much prefer double unders being paired with thrusters rather than rowing or burpees like in the past.
After round 7 on Friday, my back was really tight and not moving so well. So for my second attempt on Monday night I wore my weight belt:
Ended up being a great choice! I was able to breathe with it on, and my back felt much more… uh… sturdy? The thrusters felt so much better! And my time was 9:43 which is actually quite a bit faster. 30 seconds is a lot of time!
I don’t know what’s going on in this picture. But at least I’m HAPPY!
Now that I think about it, I was either stretching or saying hello to Beefy. 😛
I really want to learn to like crossfit again. It’s so hard not to get burned out with it. Especially after the open making me feel like a crappy athlete.
I still ended up being top 12 in Arkansas, though, which was a nice surprise. I didn’t think I could come back after being so sick during the first few weeks. Part of me wants to redo that first workout and see how much faster I can be. But then I’m like “75 box over burpees voluntarily? Nah.”
It’s so hard to be mentally strong during the open. I feel like I’ve had a big, ugly raincloud over my head for five weeks and it’s finally parted and the sun has come out! Except that the actual sun is nowhere to be seen… April showers.
