My First Individual Comp…

I had high hopes.

And I finished in the middle of the pack.

The 3rd Annual Monster Mash Competition at CrossFit Sanitas was at a much higher level than my previous comps.

And I had to do all the work myself–totally different story than when you can play off of others’ strengths and get rests in the middle of a WOD.

Also, your weaknesses are more pronounced.

I could only power clean 125 lbs on the ladder. The winner did 155 lbs.

My rowing (another weakness) is terrible and the WOD was so short I couldn’t make it up.

I got no-repped a couple times. And 2 of my judges miscounted. That sucked. And I was in Heat 1 every time so I had the disadvantage of not being able to watch others.

I had to throw an 80 lb ball over my shoulder, and I struggled. I’ve never done that before and it was heavy and by the time I figured out the technique the 3 minute WOD was over.

Overall, I had fun. It was a learning experience. I’m exhausted. Majorly. Big difference between doing all the work yourself versus sharing the load with a partner. I’m disappointed in my performance, but I gotta give it to the other gals–they’re good.

The best part: a cool Halloween-themed tank!
