and finally, it was wednesday - the day we'd all been waiting for - the announcement of wod 13.1 for the 2013 crossfit games. i dashed up to my computer at 8pm and just about shit when i read what we had to do - burpees - fuck - are you kidding me - didn't we do them LAST year - and snatches - fuck - are you kidding me - my weakest lift - in the same format as last year. seriously guys, a little originality would be nice. regardless, it had to be done, but not until saturday ...
so thursday i went for a run in palgrave. trails were in great shape ...
and i even stretched out my snatch muscles a bit ...
friday night club was super fun! katie, recently a mississauga member, moved to newmarket and is now hanging out with us! check out her little girl madison ...
good group as always!
17 minute AMRAP of:
30 snatch @ 45lbs
30 snatch @ 75lbs
30 snatch @ 100lbs
well, i don't need to go any further, as my max snatch is only 80lbs. but you get the idea! my goal - to finish the round of 20 burpees. the energy in the gym was insane! everyone was so nervous! it was krazy! and as the mighty one counted us down, 3,2,1 ... i did my first burpee and all nerves were gone. get the job done! i got through the first 40 in under 3 minutes i think, and then on to the 45lb snatches - not too bad. back to the burpees - fuck these were getting hard, especially on the legs! okay, done, adjust the weight on the bar and start my 75lb snatches. these were heavy but i tried to keep moving. ted, who was counting for me, kept encouraging me to keep going and push through it! (thanks ted). i finally finished these in 15:10. with what energy i had left, i got through the 20 burpees with about 10 seconds to spare. good gawd! my score - 150! exactly what i was hoping for. as i looked around, i saw just about everyone lying on the ground in a heap - that was EVIL ! i can't remember the scores, but we all did amazing! so after the first wod, in the female 50-54 age group, i am ranked 10th in canada east and 88th worldwide. i'm okay with that !! bring on 13.2 !!
oh ya - my friend kathy scored an insane 193 points! what a beast! she is my hero!! she ranked 4th worldwide in the 40-44 age group. keep rolling sister!
sunday, after a big feed of paleo pancakes, i headed into the forest for a sweet 2+ hour run.
despite the snow, trails were in pretty good shape, only getting a bit spongy towards the end ...
i felt GREAT!
finished off the evening watching miss lilian stalk a bunch of wild turkeys up by the house.
she almost got them ...
and now, we get to wait until wednesday, and do it all over again !!!
