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. Hearing everyone talk about how brutal it was, how they had no intent to move for days after and seeing crazy meme after meme fill Instagram. Repost:… Read more »

That’s me on a rest day…I don’t usually handle them too well. I know their purpose, I understand their purpose, I take them and I take more of them when needed.

I feel like I’m constantly saying “it’s been another busy week”…which I probably am because it feels like just when we think the weeks can’t get busier, they do. Does anyone else have that problem? Please tell me I’m not alone! The good news is that I’ve been able to get in several workouts to really kick my butt and… Read more »

The Battle Of 15.2

      5 Comments on The Battle Of 15.2

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 »
