Whoops, this ended up being a really wordy post! 14.2 announcement: lololololololololololololol. Dave Castro is such a troll. 14.2? More like 14.gof*ckyourself. Suchhhhh a bummer of a workout, for so many of us. They wanted to “break up the leaderboard” with this WOD, so they did this weird mashup of time cutoff & ascending reps (a bummer lovechild of 13.4 and 13.5) with a not-so-heavy OHS and chest-to-bar pull-ups. I wish it had been regular pull-ups for the first 2, 3 minute sets, and then climbed to C2B. Even though I did them in sets of 2s and a couple 1s, they just took forever. I’m really proud though, because I’ve definitely never consistently hit C2B pull-ups before so that’s a small win, I guess!! And on my 8th OHS (really my 9th, since I got a no-rep, ugh) my shoulder started rattling as I almost lost the weight backwards. I regained control, but man, that was a scary feeling. I am not trying to bring back DisloKatie with another dislocated joint!! I cleaned the barbell both rounds, and then hopped it over onto my back to pop it up into the top position. It took an extra couple of seconds, but the exertion it would have cost me snatching it to overhead just wasn’t worth it.
Anyway, after sleeping like complete crap last night and with my hands still being sore from Wedneday’s toes-to-bars, I set a goal to just make it though one round of 10 OHS and 10 C2B. I did that, and then got 4 more reps of OHS. Seems like nothing for 3 minutes of work, but man, I was going as fast as I possibly could. Pretty sure I don’t want to redo this one. I regret not trying 14.1 again, but I don’t think I’d make an improvement on this in the next couple days. Bummerpocalypse, CrossFit HQ.
