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 😉
