Did I mention I signed up for the Open? Did I mention I did it this morning? Did I mention that I’m disappointed in my score?
Did I also mention I’ve been having inflamed knee issue that has creeped it’s ugly head for the past two weeks?
About the last 3 minutes of the hellish 7 minutes it starts to ache. More than likely because I’m exhausted and start to jump more on the balls of my feet rather than flat like I’m supposed to. I tried to be very mindful of Carl Paoili’s video about a great burpee.
I would do another attempt tomorrow for a better score but I don’t want to further aggravate my knee. I should listen to my body.
I am 1 abmat + 1 pad away from a strict HSPU! I need to not fear getting my head onto the pad.

My knee has been acting up again so this wod was hard on my gimpy knee but I am glad I got to finish in decent time. I went down in weight bc my first round felt off and wobbly. Not that it was too heavy but more so that my form didn’t feel right. Better to have good form. Took me a while to surrender to that.
My Koach is pretty amazing. He has this way about him that is never over bearing, over aggressive, and can explain movements, mobility and skills like no other. Extremely proud to call him my coach for nearing two years now.
You know what I love about CrossFit? I love that we are constantly under the microscope. I love the transparency of our weaknesses. I love that the difficulty of the movements, and the variety of exercises will inevitably distill whatever weaknesses you have. I love that the…
