I wasn’t going to blog about this, but I feel like I need to get it in writing or else I will chicken out. Remember when I mentioned that I wanted to do a crossfit competition in the new year? If you are friends with me on facebook you might remember that I publicly announced that I had signed up for one in January. It happens to be that the competition is this Sunday. BIG GULP.
I signed up for the novice division because I really have no clue what I am doing or what I am getting myself into. According to the website I should be able to complete all of the possible movements and weight suggestions. I have done them numerous times since joining Farmgirlfit in October.
Clean & jerk to a max load
Squat clean (115/75)
KB swing (53/35)
Should to OH (95/65)
Pull ups (chin over bar-men/ring rows-women)
In writing this all seems so simple. However, I know that there will be some serious competition! Crossfit peeps do not mess around. Now that it is crunch time I am absolutely terrified to go. What was I thinking when I registered?! Obviously I wasn’t thinking. I am not fit like all those other crossfit chicks, I don’t have perfect lifting form, and I have teeny weeny little runner muscles! Even the name of the event sounds intimidating. The WOD Warrior. I am terrified just thinking about it. This whole event could go south rather quickly, but I am hoping it doesn’t go that way……Now that I officially have this in writing, I have to hold myself accountable. I cannot chicken out.
If you happen to be awake around 9 am PST please say a prayer for me J
