Another Comp in the Books…

Today was an individual comp at CrossFit DNR in Fort Collins, CO. I entered the Open class because I don’t have ring muscle ups yet.

After the first WOD (which consisted of pull ups, wall balls, hand release push-ups, and a row), I was in third place.

After the second WOD (which was 30 sec max effort on assault bike with 7 1/2 minutes to accumulate back squat reps at 105 lbs in one set) I was tied for sixth. Basically, I was last in the bike but first in the back squats (I got 81 reps).

The third WOD is always the hardest cause I’m tired. It was 15 burpees over box and 30 snatches which climbed in weight with 17 min time cap.

I finished fifth overall. Not bad but not what I was hoping for.

Still, it was fun.  Community was great.  Free coffee all day long courtesy of NoCo Coffee Company.  Snow as a backdrop.  Now that’s a great day!

All I Think About is CrossFit…Is that Normal?

I’m on vacation in Steamboat Springs, CO, one of the most beautiful places on earth.

And all I can think about is getting back to the box.

I’m checking my app to see the workout for today.

I’m re-doing my CrossFit blog (and my Christian blog as well).

I’m planning my workout schedule this week.  Seeing what I need to work on.

I’m focused on the Open, trying to string together longer and longer moves.  Praying I get my handstand walks before the Open but knowing I have a long way to go.

I’m researching Comps (I have one in January and one in February, but I want to squeeze one more in in-between before the Open).

I’m writing up my 2018 goals and the most complete and specific are my CrossFit goals.

And in between I’m watching it snow!

But I have problems.

I readily admit them.

Happy New Year!
