Happy Lundi Gras y’all!

Leave a comment

I’m sitting here, Lundi Gras day, watching Magic Mike and munching on a lil piece of king cake (because why not and it’s Mardi Gras, duh) and I couldn’t help but notice that I hadn’t updated y’all on my first CrossFit Open experience.

For those who don’t know, 14.1 was a 10 min AMRAP of 30 DUs and 15 snatches #55.

I was terrified. I had never gotten DUs before.

Actually, I think I got one once. On accident.

Well, I went in on Friday and was going to do it. I wasn’t going to tell myself no.

I  wasn’t going to give in. And I sure as hell wasn’t going to give up.

So I watched my boxmates do their set. And then I thought to myself, why am I not getting a DU?

Well it turns out it wasn’t me. It was my rope.

I traded my RX rope in for a friends’ simple Rogue rope and I was getting them I developed a pattern and was finally getting double unders!

I was so excited.

Well, now that I had figured out how to get them, and had finished 14.1 at least once, I wanted to try it again. Unfortunately, I couldn’t.

Silly Mardi Gras threw me off my groove and I wasn’t able to take another chance and the workout.

Oh well. That doesn’t mean I can’t try it again on my own, right?
