CrossFit Open 16.2

Everyone was surprised how sore our upper backs were from the snatch and overhead squat workout Wednesday. I thought my quads might be really sore due to how much they were burning through the second half of that workout.

Got to the gym around 5 to get warmed up. Was excited for this one after watching the announcement last night.

A couple of keys to remember for scoring:

  • When finishing each set of double unders, mark the time on the clock, which is used as a tiebreaker.
  • If you happen to be one of the small percentage of people in the world that can finish everything, your score is your total time. Otherwise, score is number of reps completed for the rest of us mortals.


OMG! Got done with round 1 at about 3:00. Went 11-8-6 T2B, unbroken DU, and fast clean singles. Started 5-5 and then I don’t even know what after that. Some 3s and 4s I think. Tripped once or twice on DU. Pretty quick on the single cleans again. I was somewhere under a minute left I think, so that gave me 5:00 to work on round 3. At this point I couldn’t breathe. I jumped up on the bar and holy fuck! I did a lot of singles with way too long of breaks. I was shot. Managed to get in some triples at the end. Those T2B took me forever. Had about a minute left for the DU and finished with 6 seconds on the clock (11:54 tiebreak). Didn’t even touch 225#. I really wanted to get at least one because it would have been a nice jump on the leaderboard over all the tiebreaks that couldn’t lift that weight. No way in hell I’m doing it again though. I’d rather do 16.1 over.

I was absolutely wrecked! Every time I got up and walked around I got light-headed for the next hour.

I'm searching for the perfect golf swing and my first hole-in-one. I'm addicted to CrossFit. I work for Automattic.
