Nevertheless, I paid the $20 and signed up. Then I paid another $20 to buy the t-shirt...

13.1 - No, not a half marathon. As many reps as possible (AMRAP) in 17 minutes of:
30 snatches (45 lbs for women)
30 snatches (75 lbs for women)
30 snatches (100 lbs for women)
AMRAP snatches in time remaining (120 lbs for women)
My score: 2 (burpees)
I was smart and didn't push it. Technically I could have gotten at least 100 reps but loading up my glute/hammy in all those burpees and snatches would not have been wise.
In the days following I was envious of my friends who got to fully attempt the workout and see their ranking. (Insert suspenseful music) When the next workout was announced I was ecstatic - the first exercise was upper-body (the rest was stuff I shouldn't be doing). You can probably guess what happened next...
13.2 - AMRAP in 10 minutes of:
5 shoulder to overhead (75 lbs for women)
10 deadlift (75 lbs)
15 box jumps (step ups were allowed thanks to one of the top competitors breaking her foot)
My score: 209 (not smart)

Here's hoping there are upper body moves in the three workouts to come!
I know Kovas and Bob Harper are also trying their hand at the Games, anyone else?
