Tonight was the big announcement for 14.2. Like everyone else competing in the games, I was anxious to see what this week’s Open WOD would be.
Tonight was also my hockey night, so I didn’t get to watch the announcement live, or watch Camille Leblanc-Bazinet and Talayna Fortunato go head to head with the workout. But, as soon as I walked in the door, I headed straight to my laptop to see what the 14.2 WOD would be..and here’s what I found:
I have to say…this is not a good WOD for me. I should be able to do the overhead squats, but it won’t be easy. 65lb is the max OHS I have ever done and I’ve only done 10 of them in total at that weight. I’m hopeful that tomorrow I will be able to do 10 in a row. And that might be the end of my workout. I have never done a chest to bar pull-up without a band. The only pull-up I can do unassisted is a kipping pull-up, but I don’t get my chest to the bar. I guess tomorrow will be an interesting WOD…if I can get just one C2B pull-up I will be thrilled. I guess I will spend some time tomorrow searching for YouTube videos about how to do a C2B pull-up.
Aside from tomorrow being the day I will do 14.2, it will also be the last day of my Whole Life Challenge. Since I will be away when the group is doing the finale WOD on Saturday, I will be doing mine tomorrow morning. I was a bit worried that doing the WLC finale WOD might impact my performance on the Open WOD that I will do later in the afternoon. Now that I’ve seen the Open WOD, I won’t have to worry about that being a problem. I’m pretty sure I will be taking a 10 as my score for the Open WOD, and the WLC WOD in the morning isn’t going to change that.
Are you looking forward to 14.2?
Can you do C2B pull-ups?
