How To Win The CrossFit OPEN: Looking Back

      Comments Off on How To Win The CrossFit OPEN: Looking Back

This was my first year competing in the CrossFit Open. Honestly, I didn’t quite know what to expect. Obviously, I had my reasons for signing up for the Open but at the same time, I wasn’t going to be competing at my home box.

The End of the Open…This Is 15.5

      1 Comment on The End of the Open…This Is 15.5

I’ll be honest with you, I was petrified of 15.5. I saw the WOD and knew it would be hard but what got to me most was the blow up of social media.

On Saturday, I completed CrossFit Open WOD 15.2. Once again, I completed it per the scaled option and quite unfortunately, ended up with a score of 6. Honestly, I was quite devastated. With the RX version of the workout, you had 3 minutes to complete 2 rounds of the following: -10 overhead squats (65#) -10 chest to bar pull-ups If… Read more »

      6 Comments on Fitness Friday #10

This past week marked the kick off of the CrossFit Open (read why I signed up HERE) and I got to do my first Open WOD at an event for 50 States In A Year. To be expected it was definitely a rough one, made worse by the fact that my hands tore pretty bad after the first part but… Read more »

If you’re not into CrossFit, I’m sure you’re already sick of hearing about the Open but hopefully not because today I want to talk about why I decided to sign up. I started CrossFit in May of 2014.
