I went to CrossFit last night for a super cardio-based WOD. It was awesome and painful at the same time. I was the fastest of all the girls (just barely!) and afterwards, as we were stretching (or lying on the floor trying to recover), talk turned to who was going to participate in the Open this coming week. All of the girls said yes except me. I hadn't decided yet, I told them.
It's just for fun! You'll get to see where you're at and where you stack up next to everyone else. You may even surprise yourself. You did great today. You'll probably do better than the rest of us, they continued.
I admitted that I'd gotten 3/4 of the way through the Online Registration. Apparently, I wasn't the only one. They'd all done that at first too. They offered a few more words of encouragement before I headed home to register.
So I guess that's it. I guess I'm doing the open this year. I really don't expect to advance past the first workout (13.1), but it'll be fun to be part of it. I'm pretty sure the gym is going to be packed on Thursday night. The WOD gets announced tomorrow so my box is doing it Thursday and Sunday. You have until Sunday night at 5 pm PST to submit your score. It should be interesting. I created a profile online and convinced a friend to do it as well. So it's happening. It should be fun!
I've been catching up on CrossFit news and videos. This one is pretty awesome. Check it out.
