Re: The Chronicles of Brady

What a great weekend! I placed 3rd out of 11 in the Level 2 competition. First workout went mostly as planned:

WOD1 - Level 2
For time:
3 rounds of:
5 Deadlift, 45 / 30 kg
5 Hang Power Clean
5 Jerk
400 meter run
2 rounds of:
5 Deadlift, 45 / 30 kg
5 Hang Power Clean
5 Jerk
400 meter run
1 round of:
5 Deadlift, 45 / 30 kg
5 Hang Power Clean
5 Jerk
400 meter run
50 Double-unders

I totally stumbled on my double-unders at the end. Everything else was good. One of my direct competitors was right in front of me on the last run. I picked up the pace and passed him. Confidence booster. Managed 2nd place on the first workout, but I believe it's because another guy accidentally cut a run short. They penalized him by a minute.

WOD2 - Level 2
3 rounds, for time of:
20 Wall ball to 10 ft target, 14 / 10 pounds
10 Pull-ups OR 20 Pull-ups with blue band

This was a personal victory. I had planned on using the band. During warm-up, I jumped on the bar and hit a few pull-ups. I decided to just forego the band. Nailed them. I hit my last 5 as singles, but the rest went pretty well in large sets. Wall-ball was smooth and easy. Every rep counted.

I was fourth on the workout but managed to hold on to 3rd place overall. Just have to get those pull-ups faster.

Overall, awesome competition. I'm itching for more!
