Crossfit Games Open for the first time… here’s my thoughts so far:

14.1 – I wish I could have done better.  But wishing won’t get double unders for me, so practice I will.

14.2 – I know I could have done better.  A good lesson in heading into each WOD with a strategy.

14.3 – I DID my BEST!  No regrets with this one.  I gained a better appreciation of the benefit of mixed grip when the weight gets heavy!  Tried a deadlift with strict grip (if that’s what you’d call it) and just… couldn’t… hold… on!!  “NO REP!” has got to be one of the worst things anyone can ever say to you :p  No hard feelings Coach Sharon 😉

dkfocus-14.3 WOD-59

STILL – Very happy with my 95 reps 😀 A box mate asked after I finished “what’s your 1RM deadlift?”  “#225” I responded.  “Not anymore!!” he said!  This may be true 🙂

Anyone else find that this WOD completely kicked their BUTT??  I was yawning incessantly while cheering on my CFD family, and falling asleep on my couch before 8:30.  Also, frozen solid.  Crawled into bed in socks, pj pants, a t-shirt and a hoodie!  Say what??  Strange.  Thankfully after a solid 9 hours of sleep I woke up feeling my usual awesome self 🙂

Downside to my post-WOD uselessness – didn’t cook anything for my Henry’s/Sport Chek double header today.  So breakfast was the usual egg whites & sweet potato, but lunch is meatballs w/salad, dinner is meatballs with eggplant, and if I need a snack?  A meatball?  Can you tell what was the only protein I had left in my fridge?  Here’s hoping inventory doesn’t run till tomorrow… I don’t have enough meatballs for that.



Comments on: "get a grip" (2)

  1. Nice work! I probably would have said, “F***” after I heard, “No Rep” 🙂

  2. Well done! I’m doing it tomorrow. I will have to keep the reverse grip in mind when the weight gets higher.
