I Made The Team!

crossfit Despite being completely sick all week and having shingles, I still managed to perform well enough yesterday to take one of the three female spots on Flatirons Crossfit’s Affiliate Cup Team! I am so excited! We had to do three grueling workouts within 2.5 hours. It was brutal.

Workout 1:
As many rounds as possible in 10 minutes of:
6 pullups (kipping allowed)
4 deadlifts @ 180 lbs
150 meter run

Result: I almost made it 8 rounds, tying with Rosanne for the top score.

Workout 2: Ironically named “Karen”
For time: 150 wall balls at an 8 ft target with a 14 lb ball.
It looks like this:

Result: I was 2nd behind Lucinda who smoked all of us. After all those dead lifts it was really hard to get out of the squat.

Workout 3: The one I feared would keep me off the team:
3 overhead squats at the heaviest weight we could get up to.
3 rounds of as many pull ups as we could do in a row.

Result: I was okay with the pull ups but I am TERRIBLE at overhead squat. I mean worthless. My shoulders don’t have that range of motion so I keep avoiding them. But luckily I did well enough in the first two to make up for my 4th place finish in this one and edge by Elizabeth.

The team is made up of 3 girls and 3 guys. At the end of April, we will compete against 38 other teams for only 8 spots in the competition in California in July. We have our work cut out for us!
