If there’s any interest… my Wahls Diary will be on this blog: https://battleworthfighting.wordpress.com/2017/04/26/my-wahls-diary-prequel/
We survived Festivus Games his past weekend 🙂 Amanda as a competitor and myself as photographer. Still digging myself out after more than 1,500 images were captured, but I’m excited to share these soon! Only a handful of the 130 competitors were from CFC and while it was kinda nice to shoot some different people, I’m always most concerned with capturing “family”. Especially when things are crazy intense like they were at this one with 14 lanes per heat!
First WOD in another country!!! Not that I’ve tried many places other than CFD, but it was neat to hit a local box while on vacation. Crossfit Bradenton was pretty similar to what I’m used to and they were welcoming to drop-ins. The coach was great, we warmed up as a group and everyone was very supportive of each other. 🙂 Great to see a similar amazing atmosphere exists outside of CFD as well. Plus the WOD sounded pretty great so on our last day in Florida, my awesome girl encouraged me to check it out 🙂
Tues. May 17:
Part 1 – 3 rounds of: 10 reps of sumo deadlift #145
Part 2 – For time: 21-15-9
24/20 in burpee box jump over
front squat at 115/85 lb (no racks)
Result – 9:13 Rx
LOVED this one! And Amanda took a ton of pics 🙂 One WOD and I think I at least doubled the number of good crossfit pics I have of myself. Score! Anyways… the WOD. My goal going in to part 2 was unbroken sets since the weight wasn’t huge. Near the end of the 21 reps I was shaking… but didn’t want to clean the bar again so I paused at the top and kept moving. A wicked humid day meant a sweaty mess and my legs were toast by the end but still pretty pumped. Sandbagged the deadlifts a little, but knowing the day also had hours of sitting in a car and an airplane I made that choice with a clear conscience. Today is the dreaded “day 2”. My legs are not overly impressed and stairs are the enemy.
