“The Combine” (WOD1)
When people asked me how I did after the 1st WOD...I responded with "silly and very white". LOL! Athletes literally ran, threw and jumped. Little did I know, I did pretty darn well in my shuttle run...placed 1st!
“Log Jam” (WOD2)
“The Muster” (WOD3)
How this WOD went is you did 1 muscle up, then 5 thrusters, 2 muscle ups and 4 thrusters, 3 muscle ups, 3 thrusters...you get the drill. In the past, if I would have looked at this WOD I would have flipped because of the Muscle Ups! This time I looked at it said, "They are mine! I'm NOT looking at the rings any more, I will and I can get at least one today". I cannot tell you how many times I said that to myself that day, over and over and over. I was determined. I have spend way to many competitions looking at those rings and not getting a single muscle up. TODAY WAS DIFFERENT! I waited in the stands next to check in and watched the 1st heat. Some women got them, some didn't. I decided in my head I didn't want the end rings because there were 2 rings next to each other. When I lined up for my heat (heat 2), what do you know, I got put on the end...I think that was God's little joke, he knew I was going to do well...haha! Jeremy said "3-2-1 GO"! I grabbed the rings and HOLY COW I DID A MUSCLE UP! After a quick celebration, I ran over to my bar knocked out all 5 of my thrusters quickly because I wanted to get back to muscle ups...where in the world did that feeling come from? I have never wanted to face MUs in a comp before. I always avoided them. NOT THIS TIME! I got 2 muscle ups, then 4 thrusters...I was on a high, on cloud 9! I know I wasn't moving as fast as the other girls but I was getting muscle ups in a competition...I didn't care!! No joke I did a "happy dance" after every single one...and the happy dance started out when I locked out at the top of the rings! I will NEVER forget this moment...this is accomplishment from hard work, dedication both physically and mentally. It brings good tears to my eyes just to write about it. I made it all the way to the last set of muscles ups. Did I finish the WOD, no...do I care, no...I GOT 1o MUSCLE UPS IN A COMPETITION!! THAT IS A 10 REP PR!!!! The video below is from a stranger in the stands who filmed it for me. What a GREAT community!
