Wednesday - 9/23/2015 - Second Session

I signed up to do the CF2A Masters Team Competition next weekend. My partner will be Keith Brown. This, combined with other stresses in my life right now, kept me up most of the night.

I don't want to let my partner down in this competition. At the same time, some of the other teams have serious heavy hitters, including Joe Ames who won the 50-54 division of the CrossFit Games in Carson, CA, earlier this year.

One of my biggest worries was on the first WOD, so I went back to Canal Park to give it a try. My hands were still pretty tore up and sore from yesterday, but I taped up as best I could and got on with it.

For time
Row 300m
30 KBS @ 53#
20 Pull-ups
10 burpee box jump overs
Row 300m
Everything went great until the pull-ups. I had to break them up quite a bit and that chewed up a load of time. I did the KBS in two sets of 15 and that was comfortable, even with just a few seconds of rest. I finished this first run in 7:40. I know I will need to take a lot of time off that before next week to be where I can be happy with my score.

Later in the competition will include a bunch of barbell work with 115#. This includes a bunch of bear complexes, lunges, and shoulder to overheads. I worked through a bunch of that to start getting used to the weight. So far, it's all good.
