CrossFit Fittest Games Challenge

This morning was the Fittest Games Challenge, and my first Cross Fit competition. The people that showed up for the workout were athletes... Today was a rough and rewarding workout. The first workout was 155lb. dead lift, 10 push-ups, and 15 pull-ups. Four rounds! It went by pretty slowly. 155 pounds is heavier than I thought! It was tough but with so many bad ass athletes around me kicking my butt, I had to preform. I finished in 1030. I loved being able to do pull-ups on my own, it makes it such a difference in motivation and confidence. I was happy with it and glad that it was over!!

The final workout was seven 95lb overhead press and a 400 meter run, 5 rounds. Obviously I was not worried about the run. I only got through the first round with 95 pounds. I finished the 7 reps and people were already done with the run, so I had to scale the weight to 85 pounds. No matter what I was saying to myself in my head, and what Randall and Zach were yelling, I just could not push that bar up another time. I was pretty pissed, but happy at the same time because that was the first time I have EVER pushed 95 pounds over my head. I'm pretty proud that I actually pushed that weight, being that it was within 25 pounds of my body weight.

With all the struggle I went through with the last workout, I still made the qualifier!
