I survived the first WOD of the Crossfit Open, although just barely. My chest is still burning and I’m so dang tired.
17 minute AMRAP of:
30 Snatch, 75 / 45 lbs
30 Snatch, 135 / 75 lbs
30 Snatch, 165 / 100 lbs
Max rep Snatch, 210 / 120 lbs
I was nervous going into it because my max snatch was only 65#. I told myself I would just do what I could and try my hardest. I had hoped to maybe get at least one snatch at 75, but I just couldn’t make it happen. Those burpees were killer!
My final score was 100 reps. I’ll take it. I am not doing this in hopes of getting a good standing, I’m just trying to survive and say I’ve done it, see what I am capable of when I really push myself.
I’m anxious to find out what next week’s WOD is going to be!!
Have you ever competed in anything before? I was not into sports or anything as a kid so this is my first competition like this.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the pumpkin cranberry muffins I made yesterday were delicious. So delicious in fact, I made another double batch this afternoon.
