Do I chose open rx weights for daily WODs now? Of course not, but I do feel that I am more prepared to chose an appropriate weight – one that pushes me and makes me better.
In the end I wouldn’t claim that I was good at any of the open workouts, but I would say that I was successful. I discovered that sometimes when I think my body isn’t strong enough it is my mind and I rediscovered the joy of competition and having my “team” behind me.
Proudest moment – 11 reps of 95# clean and jerk (and no missed jerks)
Most frustrating moment – missing every 2nd or 3rd wall ball throw
Favorite part about the open – the awesome pictures taken each week! …Many compliments of Shaughnessy Photography
