cloud nine, in 14.1

After the longest 10 minutes of my life, countless times catching the rope in my feet, a decent number of lasting whip lashes on my legs and forearms, I finished this bitch of a WOD.  6 double unders 😀  Many of my fellow CF Division athletes posted 5, 6, even 7 rounds yet I’m still walking around on cloud nine 😀  Last night when I read the WOD, I wanted to cry.  I’ve been working on double unders for months without success.  But in my darkest hour I realized something.  I didn’t need to stress over 30 reps unbroken.  So I decided to just do the best I could and refuse to give up until the clock ran out.  I went to the box this morning for Friday coffee day, but I didn’t do the WOD.  Instead I spent an hour alone with the rope and practiced.  Coach Sharon eased my nerves when she told me “you only need 1 rep” to make it to next week!  YES!  So that became my goal.  I would not give up till I got my one legit rep!  Determination paid off 🙂  I got 6.  It was a brutal 10 minutes I will admit.  My lungs were on fire and my head was pounding, but I didn’t stop.

In classic CF Division style, the community was right there with me every step of the way 🙂 As was I with every other athlete who worked out today.  It’s such an amazing feeling to be a part of something so awesome 🙂

and post WOD, while everyone was helping clean up the bars and plates… I got in 15 power snatches, just for good measure.  I just wanted the chance to pick up the bar 😉
