I was caught in the kind of perfect storm that sends your New Year’s resolution crashing down.
It was around 2pm, and I could feel my throat starting to get sore and dry. The kind of “you’re definitely going to have a cold tomorrow” type of feeling. What’s worse, the WOD was a fran-style workout and I’d just committed to spending 2014 working on my Fran.
It’d been a long week of WODs and I was sore and tired; but despite this perfect storm destined to crash my resolve, I had to go.
And now I AM SO SORE.

If you don’t know what a cluster is, watch this video.
That’s a pretty gnarly movement.
Like Fran, the cluster involves a thurster, except that it start with a squat clean. What makes this WOD even more challenging is that while Fran has a total of 45 thursters, this WOD has 55 clusters.
Ladies and gentleman, I made the best decision of my life to show up. I’m sick, just like I knew I would be. But I did a great job. I didn’t finish, but I showed myself how much I’d improved.
Happy hunting in 2014. Go get ’em!
