The play itself is not horribad but your thoughts are rather incoherent. Check-shoving a marginal hand to get you out of an "awful spot" is something I'd rarely recommend.

So, without reads I think getting it in OTF one way or the other can't be that bad. Against someone who'd only bet A2+ when checked to you could also just c/f.

This hand looks familiar!

I think with 32 bb effective we are too deep to just commit blindly. This is really a pretty poor flop for our hand. I'm not sure if I like check fold much though it seems kind of weak. Probably one of those spots where reads matter.

flop chk raise is pretty wtf are u doin really clickin all they buttons. Reminds me of plays that onmydonkeycyle likes to make actually.

An advanced play if I may boldly suggest would be to bet/fold flop and move onto next hand...
