CrossFit Progress: 14.5 Can Suck It!

14.5 was the first workout where I gave up, I let myself quit. You had to finish or quit, the clock wasn't going to save you . I finished the round of twelve reps and started on the round of nine reps. I could barely lift the barbel. I manged to clean the weight but couldn't finish the thruster. I dropped the barbel and stared at the clock, twenty six minutes. I looked over at my judge, said I'm done and dropped to the floor. My coach and fellow members were trying to get me back up, they wanted me to finish. I waved them off, I was done.

A year later my coaches decided to program 14.5 since many members hit PR's on their 14.2 scores. I was a little nervous but 15.5 made me more confident in my thrusters. My goal was to finish under twenty six minutes and I was determined not to quit. I finished the workout in 25:43, my new PR. It has been a long year but the training paid off. CrossFit works.

Hello, my name is Nick and I'm from Guam. I'm an avid gamer and functional fitness exerciser. I'm not great at either but I do my best. I would describe myself as a huge nerd since I love most things you would find in typical nerd culture. I started doing CrossFit at CrossFit Gof Metgot in 2013 as a way to get my weight under control. I decided to change my exercise habits to lose that excess weight and be more fit. Hopefully my story inspires people to try out CrossFit.
