Day 26

CrossFit Games

Anything interesting happen?

I was feeling pretty average this morning – I had taken a migraine tablet last night and it always makes me feel very lethargic the following day. So I was glad I could scale the WOD down easily this morning.

Today’s workout was actually a try out for a new ‘elite’ class that starts next month at the new CrossFit AKA box. I really like the idea – it is a class that focuses on advancing the best guys and girls. Because this really is ‘social’ training (it doesn’t always feel like it of course!) It needs to be set up in a way that even the weakest person in the class can do a workout – we go over technique, we practice lifting and talk about what to focus on, but if you have been doing this for awhile and are already pretty good, I understand that you will, and should, want more. It sounds like this class will deliver this.

This new elite class will also be set up to train people for the CrossFit Games: 

“The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth™. They are world-renowned as a grueling test for the world’s toughest athletes and a thrilling experience for spectators. Since its inception in 2007, the CrossFit Games have become “one of the fastest growing sports in America,” according to Forbes.”

Now, the CrossFit Games are something that I will never, in this lifetime at least, compete in! But it is a pretty interesting watch, and if you think you might have what it takes to compete, you can find all the info you need here.

WOD results

20 unbroken Double Unders (Still can’t even do 1 so I did 60 single)
Then, 9, 15, 21 reps of:
G2O (Ground to Overhead)

Time: 11:28 SU / 17.5KGs

How are you feeling?

The workout woke me up from my sleepy state this morning, which was great because I’m sure my working day was far more productive having had done training this morning. I was insanely thirsty all day today and it feels like I have drunk at least 3 liters of water and coconut water!
