************************************************************************************************************
If you have registered for the Open and completed the first WOD of double unders and snatches, YOU must login to the Games site, and you will enter your result by the number of completed rounds, plus the number of successful double-unders, plus the number of power snatches in the final round (if incomplete).

Once your score is entered, Ryan will then validate your score. You can submit your scores here.

You now have an extra week to register and nail the Week 1 workout. All the rules are the same, but HQ is now allowing you until Sunday, March 27 at 17:00 PDT, a full extra week, to perform your workout and submit your results. As always, you are welcome to repeat the workout any time before the deadline if you think you can do better. The Week 2 workout will be announced on Tuesday, March 29 at 17:00 PDT, with the submission deadline Sunday, April 3 at 17:00 PDT (again, this is Week 2).

    Just returned from Spring Break cruise….think this will be my run day – YIKES. Ship had a great workout room, BUT, needed some good barbells….did get some interesting looks though when I did crossfit in the corner while everyone was on those little weights and pullie things. One minor set back….all the free yogurt and pizza you could eat 24/7 – ugh.

    31:40 w/ clapping push ups. I’m convinced that a 50ft HSW would have been easier.

    AMRAP – 1 cup of yogurt + 1 slice of pizza
