Crossfit 13.1 Oh My....

So I haven't written in ages. I don't plan on writting much more. But I had to login today to discontinue comments because I get no less than 30 spam comments every day. Check out my comments, especially on the My Feet are Hot or My Grandma posts. I mean if you need Louis Vittons or Viagra or Oxycotin for free, the comments can help you find them.

Today I did something I CAN GAURANTEE I wouldn't have done last year. I did the first workout for qualifying for Crossfit Games 2013.

The workout...

Proceed through the sequence below completing as many reps as possible in 17 minutes of:
40 Burpees
45 pound Snatch, 30 reps
30 Burpees

I stopeed here. No need to kill myself for goodness sakes....

135 pound Snatch, 30 reps
20 Burpees
165 pound Snatch, 30 reps
10 burpees
210 pound Snatch, as many reps as possible

Here's a video of a woman doing the workout... Enjoy or cry, whichever....

Here is me during the burpee section of my workout...

(and she is FABULOUS)
I never thought I could do any of this. I almost cried at one point, but my people, my community carried me through to what I wanted. I managed to get 100 points but my time between is sure to mean I am THE LAST PERSON ON PLANET OF CROSSFIT OPEN PEOPLE.

I am ok with this. I did it. One year ago I would have laughed in your face if you said I would be able to snatch 45 pounds over my head in between doing 70 burpees.

Finshing this post with a copy of what I wrote on the discussion board of my gym because I have no feeling in my arms and I am being forced to parent by taking the kids to our school's caberet.

"So this was really hard for me. Turns out I have guerrilla arms and had to jump to the ceiling after each burpee. Took me forever and once I got to the snatch I was so upset I almost stopped and started crying. Allison saw me and talked me out of my panic. I am not an athlete and this used to be so far out of my comfort zone. I finished my snatches and the next round of burpees and then pr'd one snatch at 50#. Without all the cheering, my wonderful judge Binay and the great community in the background I would have walked out the door. I have never been prouder of myself. This is why I signed up for this. TJs continues to change my life.
I was in awe of all of the competitors this morning! Good luck to everyone tomorrow!"
And *mic down*
That is all...happymommy
