My workout was a min Helen. It was two rounds of a 300 meter run, 14 kettlebell swings (35lb) and 8 pull ups. I was surprised at how young and fit the other three women were in my heat and was even more surprised at how dang fast they took off for the first run. I did my best to not fall behind and we all four entered the door together. Two pulled ahead at the pull ups and were out the door before me, but I had a good lead on the fourth. I ended up finishing in 5:04, which was okay. There was an 8 minute time cap, so at least I finished well ahead of that. But overall that put me in 16th place of 24. I guess considering many of those girls were half my age, I should be pleased.
So all in all I had a great time seeing such amazing competitors out there, and being there to cheer on my friends. Watching the advanced division just brought it to a whole new level. So impressive!
And now Monday morning, I get to go hit a full Helen! What?! Yep that's our WOD today. I'm still sore from Saturday, but it'll be interesting to see how it goes.
Have any of you ever participated in any other crossfit events besides the Open? How did it go, and how did you do personally?
