Friday 3/14 OPEN WOD 14.3 at CFC

Deadlifts!!14.3!!!!! Three down, two to go!! And this workout was the first of them so far that when I finished I was stoked with my score and my performance. I absolutely freaking LOVED this workout. It just felt right. I liked the dynamic of adding reps and weights. I read the coaches’ tips for 14.3 on Tabata Times Friday morning, and based my strategy around that. I am definitely going to be doing that for the last two as well, because there was a ton of good insight. I decided early on that I would do step-ups/downs, because I’m fast at them and I knew that full box jumps would be nearly impossible after the deadlifts. I also knew that I’d have to take rest in the sets of 15 towards the end if I did full box jumps, and there just wasn’t time for that. My goal going into it was to make it to the 185lb round. And I did that! And then I got 3 reps at 185! Considering that is more than 90% of my 1RM deadlift, I am totally freaking stoked.
