So yea this picture is pretty dead on to how I felt last night you just have to add in thrusters to the mix. 14.5 was BRUTAL! I had to go in last night and just knock it out because I just could not stop thinking about this one and it was driving me crazy. I knew I had to finish it had no time limit so it was finish or quit. You don’t quit. Not if you can get that bar up over your head. Well it ended up taking me 24:35 so under 30 I was really happy with my time. Well I was really happy I finished. Around the set of 9 I started feeling very sick. :/ The set of 9 and 6 were so hard and I’m pretty sure If my coach was not in my face pushing me and coaching me on what to do every last step of the way I don’t know if I could have finished it. I’m very grateful for him. When the last set of 3 came I was able to push out the last 3 Fast and the last 3 burpees fast! I think I amazed ppl that were watching me about to pass out that I all of a sudden got that push to finish that fast. But its 3 the faster I finished the faster I was done with this horrible workout! If you have not done it yet. Good luck. It really might not be as bad if 65 is a lighter weight for you. For me it was not. I had never even done one thruster at 65! And I still don’t think I’m ready for 65. 55 for now. But on a happy note I’m not very sore today. Last night I could hardly move so I was thinking this morning might not be so much fun but I feel pretty great. So hello Garage gym today! 😀 Please let me know how y’all did at 14.5! And If you still have not did it good luck!!!!



I would be lost without these girls!


Well hello 14.5! We all knew it was going to be thrusters and burpees so really no surprise there. But now the no time limit. That’s a whole different story. 14.5 is for time. That means if you don’t finish it’s because you quit. I will not quit. Now that being said I wonder how long it will take me to do this wod! I did thursters not very long ago at 55 and they were not easy so… I guess we will see.. How do y’all feel about it? I would say my favorite thing is the burpees only because I feel like they are more mental and I’ll be able to keep throwing myself down. Now throwing that weight up over my head 80 plus times. I’m more concerned about that and I really hope I don’t run into a road block were I just can’t get it up. Fingers crossed. I’m hoping that I will be able to do this wod Sunday that way I can give my hands today and tomorrow still to heal as much as they are going to. If I am able to do that I think I will do Karen again today (150 Wallballs) Maybe that will be my Friday Wod. I’m determined to get my time under 10 minutes 😀 So until that happens it will be a regular wod. I ordered a 16lb wall ball over two weeks ago from Amazon but as of a few day’s ago it still had not shipped so we just canceled the order and I have to find a different one to order. It should not take that long to ship a idem. I think. Okay I have to get stuff done around the house and play with the baby before nap time. I would love to hear what y’all think of 14.5!!! 🙂
