      i feel you. i timed out at the 15 min cap with 5 reps to go at 155#.

      • reisbaron

        Perhaps not up to your standard, but admirable that you did that weight and came close to finishing.

        • BenS

          Patrick did it rx’d and came within 1 rep up finishing – that is admirable

          • Patrick

            Definitely found my breaking point this morning. Frustrating and humbling to miss that last rep. Would love to give this one another go in the future.

          • reisbaron

            So what was going to happen if you did the last rep and your time was 15:05 or something? Did your coach have a bucket of slime hanging above your head in case you went over?

          • Patrick

            Last rep wasn’t happening today. Failed on the final squat clean before the time cap and once after the time cap. Fortunately, coach had the sympathy to throw in the towel for me.

          • reisbaron

            Fair enough…nice work!

  • Eric

    That was horrible. I felt a pull in my back 2nd or 3rd round. 135# in 13:11 – was a struggle to finish.

    • Kyle J Smith

      with all due respect- “felt a pull in my back” may warrant tapping out. i hope you’re feeling better now.

      we do our best to provide adequate warm ups for as many people as possible, but if certain movements/rep ranges/WODs require that you spend a little bit more time on your trouble spots (lower back, shoulders, hips, etc) come in a few minutes early if possible and spend some time mobilizing or warming up (within bounds, of course.)

      if you have specific questions, let me know: kyle@crossfitnyc.com

      • Eric

        Totally understand your point/concern. I definitely wasn’t destroying myself, I’ve learned to listen to my body. If it was something I couldn’t keep doing, I would stop. Appreciate it Kyle.
