This weekend I participated in Women’s Wod Jam at CrossFit Omnia. I love this CrossFit gym, and they always put on such great competitions. Plus, they have plenty of room to warm up before the WOD, so I feel better prepared.
I partnered with a gal named Brianne. We did fairly well considering we’ve never worked out together before. It was a fun CrossFit comp, and I highly recommend it.

None of the workouts played to my strengths. It was all heavy weights with moves I’m not good at (pistols (one-legged squats), ring dips, bench press, and GHD sit-ups). Throw in an upset stomach and bloatedness, and I felt not the best. Plus, I was the oldest athlete in the bunch.
If I had known the workouts ahead of time, I probably wouldn’t have signed up.
Lessons You Learn from Finishing Last at a CrossFit Competition
You are stronger than you think. I did heavy lunges today I didn’t think I could do and ring dips I didn’t think I could do and pistols.
You are forced to do workouts and moves you’d never do otherwise. All of these workouts sucked. But I did them. Not happily, but I did them.
The best part about finishing last is you don’t have to stick around for awards. I left early and got home early, so my day wasn’t completely gone. I got home and took a nap. Heavenly
