It would probably be a shorter conversation today if you were to ask me “what doesn’t hurt?” Yesterday was the team Showdown Throwdown at CF Division and my team Shrug Life killed it 🙂 Well… we didn’t win, but had so much fun and did really quite well. Tied for 2nd place in the last workout too!
WOD # 1 – Thruster Ladder
2:00 for each athlete to work as far up the ladder as possible:
Complete 2 thrusters at each weight
WOD # 2 – The Girls
18:00 time cap, 1 athlete working at a time:
males – 30 snatches
females – 30 clean & jerks
remaining time – max reps unbroken wallballs
Score – 325 (205 wallballs)
WOD # 3 – Bambi
7:00 time cap, 1 athlete working at a time:
males – 20 calories Airdyne
females – 15 calories Airdyne
Once first athlete completes calories on airdyne, move on to sled pull relay. Trade off on sled pulls with second athlete once airdyne is complete, and third/fourth until 7 minutes is complete.
Score – 180 <- don’t know what that means… but I think we came 6th in this one 🙂
WOD # 4 – The Hundreds
100 calorie row – 25 cal per athlete
100 synchronized kettlebell swings #35
100 synchronized burpee-box-jump-overs
100 synchronized deadlifts #105
Score – 425 reps <- ONLY team in first 2 heats to get back to the row!!
In terms of personal performance, not too often I say this after a comp, but I was really pretty happy with how I did 🙂 Had hoped to get a little farther on the thruster ladder, but decided I was ok with being average there. Made up for it in the other WODs too! Got through my 30 clean & jerks in 2 smooth sets of 10 and an 8+2 (not perfectly touch’n’go, but close). Also killed the row and deadlifts in the last WOD. Like, kept my split about 1500 cal/hour 🙂 and crushed 2 sets of 25 reps unbroken deads. The burpee-box-jump-overs kicked my butt HARD. Ryan and I kept the synchro thing going really well! I suggested before the WOD started that we were never going to win this dance if we both tried to lead… “You lead! I’ll just pick up your rythym!” 🙂 It worked great, except his pace was more than I could handle in the burpee bit :p I cut our sets shorter than planned when I was struggling to get myself up on the box haha!! Strategy worked none the less. Tied for 2nd in the workout felt pretty great! Would love to do another comp with this crew 🙂
Another note from yesterday… I need to plan the fueling portion better. Got home later Friday night after our final playoff ball hockey game in Hamilton, which yes we lost and yes I was one penalty away from getting kicked out of, and didn’t take the time to figure out a food plan for Saturday. By the time I got home from the comp after 4pm, I’d eaten some watermelon, 2 aussie bites… I think a few blueberries… yeah. Fail. Went out for dinner cause I was totally lacking the desire to cook anything and had the most delicious burger complete with bacon, although anything probably would have been the most delicious thing at that point. At least I drank lots of water I suppose 🙂 and today has been better on the planning front. Ball hockey happening again tonight, so we’ll see what my legs think about that!
