    You can find Open WOD 12.1 on Beyond The Whiteboard here:

  • Naveen

    I submitted my score on Sunday, but it still doesn’t show up. Did I do it wrong?

    • Hari


      I see your score, submitted on Friday, but I didn’t see anything on the judging sheets at the Box. Did you and your judge log your results?

      • Naveen

        I told sully my score. He just said to remember to post it online.

  • Dallace NYC

    What is the cut-off for this week’s open WOD? Christian and I are in LA and likely won’t have time to get to a box before we return home late on Monday.

    • Hari

      You need to do it by Sunday evening. You can do it at any affiliate and have them verify it.

      • Court

        That’s by 8pm, EST.

        • Christian

          Can’t see us making it by then… Any feasible alternatives?

    Regrettably my schedule has not allowed me to make Friday’s or today’s Open workout. Will there be any opportunities to do it tomorrow, Sunday?

      You can do it at any of our classes tomorrow, Ray.

      • Ray Levitt

    I need to complete the first workout tomorrow as well. Where will that take place, the 26th street location or 28th st space?

    Dare I say it? That was fun. 12.1 – 86
    I looked back over my notebook and on December 7 of 2010 I did 75 burpees for time and it took me 11:08. I’ve made a slight improvement over the last year and three months I’d say. 🙂
