Today was the day I attempted to smash 13.2 of the Reebok Crossfit Games. Smash it I did not. I did however give it all I got.
On my practice run I managed 122 reps, not this time!
This what we were up against. I have never ever lifted 75lbs overhead so I knew this was my challenge. Yes the bar fell many a times and yes I go “no repped” quite a bit!
Here’s how it started
Assume the position
Now clean that bar and press it up overhead! Sounds easy right! NOPE
After managing 5 of those I deadlifted the hell outta that bar for 10 reps
Now onto 15 reps of box jumps, which I chose to step up to rather than jump!
And back down
That was 1 round , round 2 I needed Coach in there to advise
I managed 3 rounds plus 4 reps for a total rep count of 94.. Urgh ! Here I am signing my scorecard
Not great but when I think back to 2010 when I was 284lbs, the only thing I was lifting then were cheeseburgers! I’m proud of what I have accomplished in the 3 short months I have been Crossfitting! I will only get stronger,better and faster!
Now if you want to see real WOD killing check out Coac
I love this kid!
He killed it today
This was all that was left of him
Today was a great day for all us athletes at Crossfit Belleville, we are a family and we support each other! I can rest now till Wednesday , when they announce 13.3! Oh dear lord!
