Re: 21 MARCH: National Capital Region Military Affiliate Throwdown
Due to bad timing we had to contend with the National Marathon and we all had great difficulty getting there, as the highway off ramps put us all within the run route and the location was right outside of it. AT least one of ours from Ft Meade turned around frustrated. A late start saw about 20 competitors and a few spectators (along with one mascot) make the field.
The WOD was torturous:
2 rounds of
- 10 push press, (75lbs/45lbs)
- 10 kettlebell swings, (1.5 pood/1 pood)
- 10 ring dips
- 10 air squats
- 10 pull-ups
- 10 burpees
- 10 thrusters, (95 lbs/65lbs)
- 10 push-ups
Run 200 meters
We had some good competition. My congratulatios to the winners. Since I don't have full names I'll refrain from butchering spelling and ask Jeff Collins to post them here.
Next year, Potomac CrossFit offered to host, I think we all agreed that would be a great! Next time, more lead time & NOT on the day of a marathon--that is for sure!
Lots of lessons learned, all in all we had 5 affiliates represented and a few independent CrossFitters.
