On a snowy day in Colorado, today was Day 1 of the 2018 Turkey Challenge in Superior, CO, at the Sport Stable arena. I competed in the Masters competition and my daughter competed in the Teens Division.
I could have done better but tomorrow is Day 2, and I’m hoping to improve. I definitely need a break as I’m feeling burnt out on CrossFit competitions, and it’s showing.
It was fun to do with my daughter (this is her first CrossFit competition). It’s a popular one in Colorado, so it was packed. Lots of vendors, lots of excitement, and Matt Chan. What more could one ask for?
Tips for Multi-Day CrossFit Competitions
- Pace yourself. Two days is a lot, and you want to save some in the tank for Day 2 of the CrossFit Competition.
- Realize there are people better than you. I win some CrossFit competitions, but I lose many as well. It all depends on who shows up, and if the workouts play to your strengths.
- Bring lots of food, water, and energy drinks. You’ll be hungrier than you think you’ll be.
- Show up early to find out where the workouts will be held. With such a big venue, it’s easy to get lost. Take the stress out of your CrossFit competition, and be early to find your way around.
