|That face though…|
Well, folks week 2 of the CrossFit open didn’t disappoint. It was a lung burner with a max lift. Oh, Joy – said no one ever. But seriously I wasn’t too excited about the workout because of the 1 rep max clean. I’m just not there, yet. But that’s what the open is about pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.
So let’s get to the nitty gritty…
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 reps for time of:
Dumbbell squats 25-lb. dumbbells
Workout 18.2a 1-rep-max clean
Time cap: 12 minutes to complete 18.2 AND 18.2a
Honestly, I didn’t think this WOD was very exciting. Probably because it’s not in my wheelhouse. When there’s a movement you’re super good at you are more likely to be excited about it.
UGH — this is one of those workouts I thought I was going fast, but that was not the case. Also, I don’t recommend pushing that hard when you’re super congested and can’t breathe. With that said, I redid it and well I only did it 12 seconds faster! You could say I was a bit disappointed. My final time/score: 8:16 /135 lbs.
Although I’m disappointed I have to reflect and remind myself how far I’ve come. I don’t know if I would have finished in the 12-minute time cap this time last year… So there’s that.
Whew, while I’m glad I redid it I’m also glad that it’s over. Ready to move on.
Did you do 18.2? What did you think? How do you feel about redos?
