So despite a week off due to a good course of antibiotics to stave off a "massive bacterial infection" and the fact that I cant string together more than a one double under at a time and my regular jump rope died during my warmup so I had to use this fat rope, I managed to complete all 440 reps of #17point5 in 38:35
Considering the fact that 48 hours before the start of #opens2017 I was still of the mindset not to partake this year as I thought that, in the light of my general health condition, it would be the wisest decision to give it a miss until 2018, I am extremely happy with the way my 5 weeks played out. I was lying 3rd in Africa and South Africa after #17point4 and this snail paced #wod will undoubtedly drop me way down the leaderboard however, I am #overthemoon that I threw caution to the wind and entered regardless, I would have regretted it endlessly had I not!
Thank you to all my @cftv_rsa peeps and coaches and all those of you that have supported in any way durimg this last 5 weeks. I could never have pushed as myself as far without you all. A special shout out to my #cancerbuddy @heikekotze your continued effort inspired me to keep on going in many wods that I would otherwise have stopped.
