There is a good thread on Facebook started by Forrest. He posed a few questions/ opinions that got me thinking, and I would now like to know your thoughts.

1) How was the programming for the Open? A good test of fitness? Unfair?

2) How was the camaraderie in Ktown?

3) Would you participate in the Open again?

4) Did you have fun?

A penny for your thoughts,
<3 Coach Miss J

P.S. Samantha has brought to our attention there is an on sale pair of Rogue O-lifting shoes, Wmns size 9/ Mens size 7 on the Rogue website.

    I have mixed feelings on the Open programming. I felt that it lacked some creativity at times, but involved some good movements. Camaraderie at Ktown is a different story, that ROCKED. I have loved cheering others on and being cheered on. For that reason I would do it again.

    Also, the shoes are marked down from $115 to $69.

    Not on FB as a trivial sacrifice during Lent, so I’ll weigh in here.

    1) How was the programming for the Open? A good test of fitness? Unfair?
    I liked the programming from the POV of a lower/third CF athlete. Every WOD allowed me to compete for the duration of the WOD, challenged me mentally and physically, forced me to be conscious of proper form/efficiency, and yet, were also WODs that allowed the higher/third CF athlete to easily separate themselves from the crowd. I think the WODs used accessible movements and placed the toughest ones (MUs) at the end of the WOD where upper atletes could multi-rep them, niddle athletes could get one or two and lower third are on the sidelines. think the “games-masters” are a little biased towards the Masters 55+. The fact that 52 year old has to compete on an equal scale with a 22 year old seems kind of counter-intuitive but what do I know?

    2) How was the camaraderie in Ktown?
    The Open 2012 was, IMHAWIO, the best cameraderie-building event ever. Even more than DD, I think these WODs broughtus together. I salute G/Miss J for making it so financially do-able for everyone by removing the $20 fee. Brilliant “sale price” on something that has surely deepened the bonds of shared suffering. These WOD were like a drug for me, in that I wanted so badly to be there for anyone who was doing them, to do what I could to encourage and even coach, sharing my faults and things I had erred in with others so they could do better. The fact that so many K-towners were like me, coming back time after time on WOD days says a LOT about the “more than a gym” culture we share at CFKT.

    3) Would you participate in the Open again?
    Hell yes. I like the “Competitor” t-shirts given at a lot of events. maybe a CFKT “Open Competitor” t-shirt to mark the ones who tried. Note, not an exclusive club the way we do it, so anyone can earn it.

    4) Did you have fun?
    Hell yes.

    I would add that a Post-Open social gathering, like we did after DD2011 would be a lot of fun, a great place to share, etc.

    Braers, DEFINITELY have better hair. Thank you for noticing.

    Loved the open! Workouts weren’t in my wheelhouse, but they were good, I believe. Besides, at the end of the day, they’re just another workout. I loved everyone’s enthusiasm.
