6 OHS @ 65#
6 Pull-ups
3 minutes to complete 2 rounds of:
8 OHS @ 65#
8 Pull-ups
3 minutes to complete 2 rounds of:

10 Pull-ups
3 minutes to complete 2 rounds of:
12 OHS @ 65#
12 Pull-ups
I finished 12 OHS, 12 Pull-ups, and 12 more OHS. Finished with a score of 132.
This workout had me thinking I would do very poorly because I really have not had pull-ups since my shoulder surgery. The great thing about the Opens and the large group of athletes competing together and having a judge is how much adrenaline gets pumping at 3-2-1-Go! I was able to get 2 rounds of 6 pull-ups unbroken, then I did the 8's as 2 sets of 4 each. 10's were harder, but I got 7, then 3 for the first set, then 5, 4 and 1 for the second. The last set of 12 was sets of 3. I was completely gassed by then and ran out of time. The OHS were light for me and I did all of those unbroken.

I had grand plans about going to CrossFit Boston on Sunday for a partnered version of Filthy 50, but by Sunday morning, my whole upper body was sore, and I knew I needed a rest day.
