Kayam got a bunch of great photos of Sofia F. attacking Open Workout 12.2, the ascending snatch ladder. I asked her to let us know how it went for her. Here’s what she had to say:

“I was very nervous about this WOD because my previous 1rm snatch was 73#.”

“I spent an hour before starting the WOD just watching people who I think are really talented and trying to get motivated.”

“Going in I had a goal of 38 reps but because of all the adrenaline and nerves I was able to get 57.”

“Immediately after I was upset that I didn’t reach 60. I plan to dream big on 12.3…”
