what a weekend!
Sectionals this weekend was awesome! I really surprised myself, and learned a lot about what I can accomplish. Going into it I was not sure where I would end up, just wanted to make top 30 and move onto regionals.
First WOD: 2k row, then max deads at 185lbs. each dead would take off 5 seconds on the row time. I have never rowed a 2k, but I did it in under 9 minutes so I was happy. I was hoping for at least 10 deads, and got 10. I could have done more, I wanted to do more. My grip went south and it just rolled right out of my hands. WOW was I mad. Crystal and I were both members of the short person club and still made out with a great row time.
Second WOD: bad ass. I knew I had this one, it had my name written all over it. I lOVE doing hand stand push-ups, thankfully. I bagged the #1 time for this workout and needed that one point that I earned. It was a fun workout, smiling while doing it. I enjoyed it because I had the confidence in myself to execute all of the movements. I wish I could feel this way before all workouts.
Third WOD: goal was to get through...fast. we had to wait around until 12noon to go, so I got some sun. It went well, the snatches were the best part.
My goal was top 10- and I placed 7th. That is HUGE for me. WOW, I was really excited and looking forward to getting even stronger and faster for regionals!!
CC ladies dominated just like I knew we would. We all train together and push each other. We know each others weaknesses and strengths. The best part of my day is heading up to the gym to get with Jessica, Alex, Megan, Lisa, Crystal, Crystal, Carey, and Heather to workout. Knowing these ladies are cheering me on, not letting me crap out, and waiting there for me is the only confidence I need! Here is a video of crystal nelson and I destroying the 2nd WOD.
