If you did not complete your "After" photos for the Nutrition Competition, then we will extend picture taking till Monday. That is absolutely the last chance so get it done!
Amber, Brad, Brooke, Chanda, Charlotte, Erica, Holly, Kayla, Kevin H., Riz, and Ryan S., still need to enter their scores. Get that done by 5pm today or your scores will not be counted for any of the workouts left in the Open.
The Open is fun and pushes you farther than you think. This week, I've seen people get Snatches at heavier weight than they thought they could. Instead of scaling, they worked hard at 75#, 100#, 135# or 165# and got one or two more reps than they believed they would. That is awesome!
A few of us did workout 13.1 twice. I "took it easy" one day after work just to see what the workout would feel like. I did the workout, went home and went to bed and felt fine. I did the workout again a day or two later. I got only 5 reps more, but I was destroyed. Others completed it twice because they failed at Snatches that they knew they could get. Others just saw other people doing well, became even more competitive, and gave themselves a goal to do better.
Whatever reason, you had for doing it twice, if it paid off for you then great! If it didn't, then now you know that instead you will hit workouts 13.2 to 13.5 as hard as you can the first time. Then you can relax and be done knowing you did your best. That's what I plan on doing from here on out. I learn after the first workout every year that doing one of these workouts once is enough for me!
