Crossfit Open 2013

Thoughts?  No?  Well, you're going to get mine anyway.

We've been doing the open workouts, but haven't registered.  It would have just been a pain in the ass to either try to get into a box every week, or attempt to videotape to send it in.

Either way, we've been having a blast with the WODs! (kind of)

I mentioned 13.1, but the rest have been just as FUN.

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:
Shoulder to overhead, 5 reps (115/75)

Deadlift, 10 reps  (115/75)
15 Box jumps, 24/20" box  

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 12 minutes of:
150 Wall balls (14 lbs to 9' target)/
(20 lbs to 10' target)
90 Double-unders
30 Muscle-ups

135/95 pound Clean and jerk, 3 reps 
3 Toes-to-bar
135/95 pound Clean and jerk, 6 reps
6 Toes-to-bar
135/95 pound Clean and jerk, 9 reps
9 Toes-to-bar
135/95 pound Clean and jerk, 12 reps
12 Toes-to-bar
135/95 pound Clean and jerk, 15 reps
15 Toes-to-bar
135/95 pound Clean and jerk, 18 reps
18 Toes-to-bar...
This is a timed workout. If you complete the round of 18, go on to 21. If you complete 21, go on to 24, etc.

Not gonna lie, I've been pretty impressed with myself.  I'm not putting out any top of the line scores or anything (not even close), but we have been completing every workout as prescribed.

And we're onto Reebok Crossfit One.  Every week they've posted a WOD on Tues/Wed with something to do with the Open workout of that week.  At first I thought it was coincidence, but it does NOT appear that way.  Jerks.  I was mad for 13.2, we had just done a shitton of deadlifts on Thurs, and had to wait til Sat to recover enough for the Open WOD.  However, for the C&J, I totally PR'd the day before, and it really boosted my confidence for 13.4.  I was kind of scared of the 95#, but once I got 110 (and felt like I had more!) I was totally ready for it.  So I guess their programming isn't so mischevious after all ;)

 This week so far we've done running and power cleans.  And burpee pullups.  And thrusters.  I have a feeling some kind of jacked up Fran workout is coming for 13.5.  According to Dave Castro, "They're going to have to feel pain that they've never felt before ... It's going to be a bloodbath."


They are having Camille Leblanc-Bazinet (vs Sam Briggs) and Rich Froning (vs Jason Khalipa) do the workout after the announcement.  The only two people I'd want to actually tune in for the live stream, but we'll be at a Green Day concert tonight.  Maybe if they aren't on yet, I'll stream from my phone :D

Are you participating in the Open?  How'd you do?
