Last Open WOD Of The Mohicans

Finally. The end of the 6-week (ehh- I mean 7 week) sectionals road is here. And it ends with a final event that is an evil spin-off of "Fran": 100lb Thrusters & Chest to bar Pull Ups til you fall over and die or seven minutes runs out- whichever comes first. Rather than use the traditional 21-15-9 rep scheme, CrossFit HQ opted to stick with the AMRAP format and make this one a 7 minute rodeo. Your objective is to reach as high as possible into the following sequence 3,6,9,12,15,18,21, etc... The awkward part about this workout is that your larger worksets (12, 15, 18, etc) aren't at the beginning when you're fresh- they're at the end when you're out of mojo. Brilliant. I, being both less than brilliant and eager to get a test run at WOD 11.6, decided to do the workout on Monday at around noon, less than 24hrs after having gone full tilt on Sectionals WOD 11.5 for the second time. As the saying goes: "Shoot first, ask questions later."

I felt it went very well minus the round of 18 when Grant briefly lost count of where I was at with my thrusters. For a second, the wheels almost came off- but I trudged onward and managed to get 9 reps into the 21 thrusters. My score was 135 reps. I haven't submitted it yet because, honestly, I'm hoping to better it here in the next day or two. At least that's the plan.
