The wife and I headed out to Crown point for the Firebreather 2011 Competition. 62 competitors which was quite a bit more then last year....which last years competition was my first Crossfit Competition and I took first so i wanted a repeat. The added bonus was getting to compete with my wife!!!! We started off at about 10 am:
315 - 505 (going up 10# every :20 sec until you cannot hit the lift)
455 (5th Place)
455# shows I still need a WHOLE LOT of work. After this was an interesting one that was worse in person then on paper:
Chest 2 Bar Pull Ups
-between each set-
30 M Walking Lunge 45# Plate
30 M Sprint
6:50 (1st Place)
Then came the final event before the cut was made to the top 5 athletes:
AirForce WOD 95# Barbell
4 Burpees to begin and EMOTM until completing
20 Push Jerk
20 Front Squat
3 Min Max Ground to Overhead
I was in the final heat and had a time of 5:58 to beat so after the first minute I knew I could rest for a few seconds before the next minute to save my lunges some for the G2OH.....which was much HARDER being so fatigued. I hit 225# which felt like 300# and then hit 255#....I had recovered quite a bit by the time I did 275# and that was my goal weight.
The final WOD was next and the top 5 moved on. Rules changed though....now it was winner take all for $1,000!!!! The WOD:
5 Power Clean 165#
10 KBS 1.5 Pood
10 Box Jumps 24'
15 OHS 135#
The competition was awesome and was well worth the Prize of $1000!!!!! Look forward to the comp in January!
