Jogged to the box for the Saturday noon class and did some DROMs to get loose for another crack at seven minutes of heaven.
Crossfit Open Workout 12.1: complete as many burpees as possible in 7 minutes.
Score: 102. Fucking hell. Tried a more complicated strategy of 20 OTM for the first 2 minutes, then 16 the rest of the way. Didn’t work out. I don’t think I would’ve even hit 100 without everyone screaming at me. Some dude paced it out at 16/min and ended up with 118. I think this was much smarter and better paced. I can’t believe I did this one again for 1 measly point. I really thought I could get about 115.
What I learned from this is that the simplest strategy is usually the best. My plans were too complicated and once I was in the fog of war mid-WOD, I couldn’t even remember where I was supposed to be anyway. Probably not worth it to do this one again for the third day in a row.
