With my competitors cherry popped last week with 12.1, it was time to do the 12.2 WOD last night, and I was slightly LESS nervous than last week, simply because I already had one under my belt.
I literally spent all day yesterday trying to come up with a goal, but for some reason I couldn't decide. I didn't want to say 61 and then only be able to do 40, but I didn't want to say 40 and blow past it. So I basically didn't decide on a goal. Fine, no big deal.
We got to the gym and there was a bar set up for 75lbs, so I figured I'd do a couple test Snatches. 75lbs is the 2nd round of 30 in the WOD and I knew that I had done a previous Snatch WOD with a weight of 70lbs. I tried to Snatch, and I failed. Talk about an ego blow. Granted I wasn't warmed up, but still, 75lbs was heavier than I had expected and I suddenly became very afraid of the WOD.
