20.2

Another complete rest day yesterday and my legs were still pretty tight. At the 4pm class for the workout.

Warm-up

  • 2:00 Echo Bike
  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Dead Hang
  • Various DB Thrusters
  • 2:00 Echo Bike
  • Various DB Thrusters
  • 1:00 Echo Bike

CrossFit Games Open Workout 20.2

20:00 AMRAP

  • 4 DB Thrusters (50# DBs)
  • 6 Toes to Bars
  • 24 Double Unders

It’s a big surprise to see thrusters in week 2, but I’m so glad for the small sets if we have to use dumbbells. I feel like picking a good starting pace is important this week as well, so was hoping to do better than 20.1. Last night, 16 rounds seemed like a good goal, which would require a pace of 1:15 per round. Today, after seeing the leaderboards I decided to shoot for 18 rounds.

I did my early rounds and rested until 1:06 had passed for that round. I was feeling pretty good and doing 3-3 for all of my T2B. Then I missed some dubs, lost my rest, missed more dubs, was resting all over the place, and really fell off pace over the second half of the workout. Ended up with 15 + 32. Like week 1, it felt like the weight was affecting me more than it should have, making my T2B and double unders more tiring. I think I only did 3-4 rounds of dubs unbroken, which is not good for only 24 reps. It’s a good thing I broke the T2B too because the second set of three in my last two rounds turned into one of those where I had to reset and stopped my feet at the bottom.

My back was getting tight throughout the workout and I can really feel it afterwards. Definitely not doing it again. Less happy about my effort in this one because I started resting all over the place.
