CrossFit Open 16.1

I loved every second of 16.1. All 72,000 of them.

the overhead walking lunges were so much better than I was expecting. They finally got hard as I got into the 5th round, and on my very last set I ended up losing the bar 2/3 of the way down. This was much more fun than I was expecting.

I was able to pretty easily PSN the bar up in a clean grip and go. I tested several grip widths until I found the most comfortable to be that clean width.

The chest to bar were done pretty much all singles. The fact that I’ve gained about 15 pounds in the past year is certainly making the bodyweight stuff interesting :)

Overall, this was a fantastic workout, so glad I was able to get it done (5.5 rounds). I’ve got some work to do, but I’m happy with the result.

Side note, I have been struggling with a neck injury I got back at the end of January, which has had a major impact on my February, and sadly the open. It’s been very hard to do much of anything other than rowing since the incident.
