Update on my L2...

Went as I expected - I prepared properly and was ready....

But I choked. This was something I had worked towards for over a year and it meant everything to me. When I got in the middle...the gravity of the situation hit me and I bombed. No two ways about it.

Still -
Learned a lot, and as always with CrossFit met a lot of great people including Tommy H. who finished 2nd in the CF games. Nice guy.

All in all - The test is exactly what I do every day and love it. I'm comfortable with it but when the lights were on I just came up short.

P.S. Matt passed so at least we have 1 L2 at our Box...

Did a WOD on Saturday

[B]10/31/09[/B]

AMRAP in 20 minutes
5 thruster
7 Hang power clean
10 SDLHP

10 rounds + 7 HPC (Not a PR I don't think but I also may have missed count)
Was tough doing this while Annie and Adrian were doing Helen but I wanted to work out so I did.

[B]11/01/09[/B]

Active rest
Did the MCCF warmup and worked on weighted pistols (Did a couple with 1.5 pood KB and they actually didn't feel too bad).

Yesterday was a rest day because I flew the red eye and had no sleep.

Today's WOD was
30 Muscle-ups for time

My time
9:49

Not a PR but I kind of screwed up. I thought I would try to do 1 muscle up every 10 secs the first minute, then every 12 etc...that didn't work and because of it I started 'missing' them...that's never good (and it hurts like hell) so I added a little time to my PR...

Owell...Bad couple of days for me, I'll get over it.

Sorry to hear. Do you know how close you were or why you didnt pass or anything like that?

I got 50 points...and needed 54. I know exactly why I failed and knew everything I was doing wrong as it happened - it was weird. It was like an out of body experience. I wasn't myself.

Jason-
Don't be down buddy!
That is a tough mother, as you know.

Good job on getting those 50 points.
Keep it up!

I hope to see you in 6 months at a L2 cert myself!

AMRAP in 20 minutes

Row 250 m
95# Sumo Deadlift High-pull, 21 reps

Ugh...tough one. Right before I started I thought WOW! this is going to be tough on the grip!

Felt like crap today - Mental note...cookies and pizza do not make for great WOD performance...:)

Run 5K

My time 28:56*

*Here's the thing. I've been hurting my calf a lot lately, it tightens up to a point where it is painful to walk sometimes - My guess is that it's from running pose improperly - although I like Pose, and it has done a lot for my running times, I wanted to get through today without an injury so I did a few things differently.

1. Didn't Pose
2. Didn't go 100% - probably 85%. (Also went a bit too far on the way out)
3. Wore squishy shoes

It was a nice day out and I looked forward to a nice jog and didn't want to hurt myself...

Have my first oly meet on sunday anyway...don't want to be injured for that!

Had a good time at the oly meet today in Ann Arbor. Definitely a learning experience and I'll do it again for sure.

Snatch

1 - 135 (62 Kg)
2 - 145 (66 Kg)
3 - 156 (71 Kg) Miss - But counts as a CF PR!!

I ended up doing a power snatch on all reps...Just happened like that. the 71 Kg didn't count because of a little press out.

C&J
1 - 175 (79 Kg)
2 - 189 (86 Kg) MESS!! (Instead of miss) didn't adjust my grip before the jerk and almost died as a result (I couldn't because i was already at the top before I realized what had happened then I panicked). I can't jerk weight from a loose fingertip grip from the shoulders for some reason. I have to almost have a partial death grip on the bar. Gotta work on that. The clean felt really light but the video is hilarious - I mean it almost came down on my head!!
3. 192 (87Kg) Got this and it felt pretty light. If I would've made my #2 attempt, I would've gone for a PR of like 205 but owell. It was still fun anyway.
