The Real Deal Crossfit Open Games WOD #1
My plan landed this morning around 6:30am and I reckon I got about 4 hours of sleep. Not bad but certainly not good considering this was the day I had to get a score for WOD1. I walked into the gym just as the noon class was ending. Susie and the entire class was flying high after hitting a good wod. John and Bill were both there with 6 rounds plus 30 reps under their belt. The doubt crept in right away - "this isnt going to be your day" your double unders are sketchy lately, the jerk isnt your movement, I pushed those aside and focused on doing what I could do. John gave me some game planning and I hit it. Great first round 1:09 if I could stay under 2 I was in great shape. That plan went to hell when i was doing double unders 5-7 at a time. I managed 5 rounds and got the sympathy encouragement all around but felt hollow. I was just not cutting it. I would have been satisfied with 6. 5 has left me down.
