I DID IT!!

I completed my first CrossFit Open WOD. And I’m really happy with my score. When I watched the live announcement, I was super bummed at first. I knew there was no way I could snatch 100# even once, much less 30 times. My one rep max snatch was done just a month ago & I got 85#. But as I watched Dan Bailey and Scott Panchik go head-to-head I started to realize that I wasn’t even going to make it to the 100# snatches, so I didn’t need to worry about it.

I set my goal for 101 reps. I knew I could snatch 75# at least once. I wanted to make it through the first two sets of burpees and get as many as I could of the second set of snatches and that’s exactly what I did. Those burpees SUCKED. SUCKED!!! The first oh, twenty or so were ok but man, it didn’t take long for me to lose the bounce in my step. I no-repped on 3-5 snatch attempts in the last round and my form was just awful throughout (it was very awkward doing snatches with just the 5lb plates, totally threw me off) but I exceeded my goal and for that I am happy and proud.
