Back at it

Well,  Regionals had come and gone.  Difference this year is no moving on....sucks!  That is an obvious statement though.  A good thing is that the guys going are well deserving and were better then me this weekend.  I had a blast and loved every second of this experience.  I love the CrossFit community and being a part of it!  So thank you to everyone who was there cheering all of us on and for those who were cheering from a far.

OUR REGION IS STACKED!

We had 5 guys coming in this year who had been to the Games.  Next year we will have 7 guys coming in to Regionals having been to the Games with another handful who could make it in many other Regions.  That is the hardest part, it is only getting tougher and requires more dedication.  It is hard to dedicate a whole year to 1 weekend and then go home from that weekend thinking about doing it all over again for another weekend in a year.  I physically feel good after the weekend and again, learned a lot.  I will be trying some new things in my training....but I will be having some fun with it for a little while as well, not stressing to much about it.

I am going to take the day off today and then begin all over again tomorrow.  I will be back at the blog again daily and push to get better.

Here were my standing from this weekend:

WOD 1
1:47 (PR)

WOD 2
14:42

WOD 3
4:52 (This one I was mad about.  I had over 10 no reps and was not sure why.  I did everything I was supposed to but he kept saying "no Rep"  it completely based me physically and mentally to feel like I was going fast only to keep taking steps backwards.

WOD 4
18:59

WOD 5
255# - 44 Double Unders

WOD 6
16:53

WOD 4 and 6 were slower then when I practiced.  WOD 6 being that I went out to fast and my grip went out during the T2B.  In WOD 6 it was the 3rd Rd of pull ups that really slowed me down.  Still awesome.

Again, great people representing our regional and another year of getting better!

  2. This weekend was crazy, our region is seriously stacked....and I can't agree with you enough about training, if it's not fun anymore why are we doing it? Gotta make the training enjoyable again, and get the fire back for next year!!

  3. good work Nick, I know it wasn't the result you wanted, but it's not because you didn't work hard enough to get there. Back to the Games in 2013!
