Crossfit Open 2014!

This is my before photo. I weighed 15 pounds more, was exhausted all of the time and wasn't getting better at crossfit, running or life. It was time for a change.

Working towards goals

Today's WOD was tough.  It was a 15min AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible) of:

800m run
20 power cleans-105#
30 burpees
40 walking lunges
50 double unders

I only got through one round plus a 525m run on the 2nd round.  Whatever.  I was okay with the WOD as a whole.  I didn't quite hit competitor weight at 115#, but I did more than regular rx'd at 65#, so all was good.

Decided to work on my bar muscle ups afterwards.  It's on my 2014 goals list and I'm not going to get it if I don't work on them at least twice a week.  So I started warming up with red/purple bands.  I did a set of six on these and they felt good. Last week I'd hit 3 reps on red alone after my 10 reps on red/purple so I decided to drop down to just red after 6 reps today.  I was surprised at how much easier they seemed today.  I hit 7 reps on just the red band, then decided to try two purple bands just for kicks.  I got 3 more reps on the two purple bands!  What?!  I did try twice with just one purple after that but I think I was too fatigued at that point.  But I can see it.  I think that maybe, sometime this year I might just get one!  Progress feels good.  What are your goals?  What are you doing to get there?
