So I had my CrossFit Competition yesterday…. there were about 6 teams in the women’s scaled division. So Joscelyn and I had to beat at least 2 teams to get into the 4th wod, which only the top 4 teams in each division go to get to. When all the teams were there and we were having the athlete meeting the people running the event told us that the 4th wod would be double Isabel. Isabel is 30 snatches for time, in order to do it the first person on the team had to do all 30 and then the next person had to do all 30. You couldn’t switch off and you had to do it as fast as you could.
So the first wod came; it was a 3 RM front squat. We both had to hit our 3 RM in 10 minutes and guess what? We both PR’d! I hit 130 lbs. for 3- 5 lb. higher than I’ve ever hit before and Joseclyn hit 160 lb.! So we were feeling pretty good after that… Then came the second wod. During practice it was a 14 minute wod of wall balls and jumping pull ups. Now when we first heard about it it was only up to 50, but on the day of the event they changed it to 50+ in essence, you just kept going until the time ran out. So Joscelyn and I made it through the 50 and we got around 25 wall balls of the 60. So again we were feeling pretty good after that because well we were on our way to 60 and we weren’t sure how many other teams had made it that far. When we finished some of the guys from our box told us they didn’t think they had gotten as far as we did and when we checked the leaderboard we were tied for 2nd place!
So we were super nervous going into the 3rd wod pretty psyched and nervous al at the same time. The last wod was a 2,000 m row, 30 power cleans, and as many burpees as possible. We got through it and did 65 burpees. When we finished our judge said “have fun in the 4th wod!” So we go super pumped and nervous- yet again!
Ok so final wod, we had to do our 30 snatches each as fast as we possibly could. I thought my arms were going to fall off but I finished and then it was Joscelyn’s turn. And it literally came down to like 1 snatch. We were neck and neck with another team and were about to finish but the girl couldn’t finish it so her and Joscelyn each had one left. And with literally only a few seconds to spare she got it before the other girl! It was so exciting.
So we got to the end and the places on the podium were announced. And guess what? We got 2nd place in the women’s scaled division! It was so exciting and if I wasn’t already addicted to CrossFit then I would be now! I told Brandon that I wanted to do a bunch more competitions. And he said only do 4 a year.. to which I said so what I’m hearing is that since I started to late… I should do 3 more competitions by the end of January… And he was like yeah…no. Worth a shot!
