When the 14.2 WOD came out last Friday my heart sank a little. Overhead squats (OHS) & chest to bar (C2B) … I can’t do either movement and because I was away when the box normally holds the open WODs I knew I’d have to do it on my own come Monday morning.

Last night I tossed and turned thinking about this WOD. I knew I wasn’t going to get a score on the board… OHS are hard and my rheumatoid arthritis (RA) had been playing up in my wrist. But I thought maybe I’d give it a go. I also knew that as I haven’t mastered Kipling pull-ups C2B wouldn’t be happening either.

When I got to the box this morning I watched my gorgeous friend Claire kill this WOD. She got 81 reps – she’s so strong & has been competing in a few local crossfit comps. She trains 2-3 times a day!

My coach asked me if I wanted to do the WOD scaled as she knew my technique for OHS is not good at all & didn’t want me to harm myself … Or as scaling meant a zero score did I want to do today’s WOD instead to get a better workout ? After all I’d be doing 15kg (sorry overseas blog-mates I work in kilograms not pounds) OHS. I was pretty bummed as I woulda liked a go but she was being fair & honest. So I submitted my zero score & committed myself to the Monday WOD instead.

Rest assured though this weekend I’ll be at the box ready to complete 14.3 to the best I can no matter what!
