15.2 is... 14.2!
They do it every year: put one WOD from last year into the Open again. I'm glad it was this one. It was a lot of fun because everyone was able to increase their score the second (or third, or fourth) time doing this workout. Carla actually tried it scaled, then re-did it five minutes later as RXed and got a better score! (You'll have to ask her about that one.)
Overhead squats and pull-ups go back to the basic elements of CrossFit, and they're two skills we hope to help everyone master. It just so happens that they're the focus of a lot of our work this month. The WOD itself breaks out of the typical task-priority or time-priority (AMRAP) mold of most CrossFit WODs. This one is about energy management, knowing when to pace yourself so you can save some juice for the next 3 minutes, then knowing when to sprint in order to move on to another 3-minute round. We also plan to train these skills with the interval workouts we're practicing more often this month.
