We weren’t even close to winning but we did the best we could and I’m proud of our performance.
The first workout we came in 16th out of 36. It was an 80 calorie row, 60 Shoulder to Overhead at 65 lbs, and 40 burpees in 10 minutes. We were able to finish a complete round plus 8 additional calories. It was slightly less than we practiced but I’m pretty sure I rowed faster than I ever have before.
This was taken right afterwards.
I was finished!
The second was a Full Squat Clean ladder and we may not have been able to finish BUT I completed 2 at 125 lbs! That’s a 7 lb personal best!
Oh! And my friend got them both on video! (albeit pretty low quality)
I was on cloud 9 after that. I’ve been working on full squat cleans with the Olympic lifting coach and apparently it’s paying off!
I felt like the last workout was our best but there was some kind of issue with the scoring so I don’t know where we placed. I also don’t have any photos. We lost most of our spectators (at least the ones who were taking pictures) by this point.
Overall it was an amazing experience. I’m exhausted, of course, but for some reason I’m looking forward to the next time I can compete. I can’t explain why, I just love it!
