Nightmare on Mill Street

Team competition

image

CF Division had 3 teams in this one 🙂  For me, it was my 2nd time ever competing in a team competition, and 1st time competing at a different box.  Crossfit Kitchener was our host and my team was made up of two guys and one other girl, all of whom were great fun to compete with. 🙂  Santos was our rockstar.  Many of the WODs MB and I decided that the best plan of attack what to get through the nitty gritty bits so Santos could flex his awesomeness with the hard stuff.  When I saw “hard stuff” I’m referring to the 2 min max reps rope climb, 2 min max reps 30″ box jumps, and of course…. the 100 pull-ups!!  Like seriously, 30/24 box jumps in the scaled division!!  Eeek!!  You should have seen the boxes too!  I almost held my breath every time Santos jumped in fear that he may crash right through the thing.  After popping out 3 ribs on Monday, I spent an hour of torture (massage) Tuesday and a visit to chiro Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to sort things out to be able to play along.  While my muscles were still a bit angry in general and downright opposed to some of the movements, my team was super supportive and we worked around the strengths of each athlete.  All in all, I really enjoyed the experience and was really happy with how we performed as a team.  Didn’t even come last 😉  I’ll be looking forward to the next opportunity to do something like this again, hopefully at a time where I can say I was in top form.

Event 1, I was only able to step up to the plate for the row sprint.  Originally the plan was for me to do the rope climb too, but jumping from the rope was near fatal.  Event 2, thrusters were not something my ribs were a fan of either, but I needed to get at least 1 in before I could jump on the rig. I didn’t pound out monster strings of pull-ups, but I did better than I thought I would! Woot Woot!  🙂 Event 3, Only movement that held me back was the KB snatch. So I made up for it by getting through all 200 single unders (is that even a thing?) and a large chunk of the sit-ups. Oh!! And a handful of two person clean and jerks. AWKWARD!!  But thankfully MB and I are nearly the same height :p lol  All in all, super fun day and so glad I was able to participate 🙂
