CF Open – 14.4 and Spring Break Starts Now!

Workout numero cuatro is done! This was the first one that I watched the live broadcast of and my stomach kept dropping as Castro kept listing all the things we had to complete in 14 minutes. 60 cals on the rower (about 1000 meters), 50 toes to bar, 40 wall balls, 30 cleans and 20 muscle ups. They call these workouts  “chippers” because you just have to keep chipping away at the vast number of reps.  Toes to bar is another movement I’m not so great at. Unlike these ladies:

ImageIn order for the rep to count you have to have both feet hit the bar at the same time. I finished rowing  under 4 minutes, and spent the remaining 10+ minutes on that damn bar (again…sounds like 14.2). I probably attempted abut 70 times, often time with one foot hitting first or, towards the end, getting about an inch away. I was not happy. So after the 14 minutes was done, I decided I was going to finish the rest of it anyway. 40 wall balls and 30 95lb cleans felt like a breeze after the toes to bar. Then came the muscle ups, which I can’t do either. So I decided to do 20 strict ring pull ups in their place.

In other news, it’s spring break!! The boyfriend and I are going on a mini road/camping trip down to southern colorado and Canyonlands, Utah. Can’t wait to spend some carefree days in this beautiful land. See you in a  week 🙂

  1. Dude, kudos to you for getting as much done as possible in that workout. God it just makes me cringe to hear about what you did – I can’t even imagine the people who are actually doing it like perfectly to a T – damn. 🙂
    You have earned your vacation! RELAX! See you when you get back! HAVE FUN!!!
