According to this http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/faq.html#WOD8
my ranking is in Intermediate in my weight class. I actually tought so, too.
Today has been more or less active rest day. Recovering from cold has been more or less great and fortunately I’ve also been able to at least go out and walk with the dog, which has kept me more or less sane. Besides walking, the sofa has kept me cozy and Big Bang Theory has kept me entertained. Well, that and then the Star Trek puzzle.
Then, of course, I’ve been thinking about my training. Next weeks Max Reps have heavily (pun intended ;)) been on my mind. Since I’m still recovering, I’m not totally confident that I would do the 1 Rep Max Back Squats tomorrow. The situation being this, I’m not completely sure I’d get myself to the gym at all. The more I think it, the more it starts to point out for me to just do something light until nailing down the CFT on friday. At least then I could measure my strength in all movements, Back Squat, Shoulder Press and Deadlift at the same day and still manage to recover from the cold enough to get it done. Besides, if I now have this rest, it also means that I will be recovered from the past months training, too. As in CrossFit, all you need to do is adapt to the situation. Life quite seldom follows my training schedules, so I might at least try to get the training to follow the life 😉
Which brings me to the fact that I actually did register for the open. And no, I’m not even closely thinking I’m going to make it to the regionals. The point being here is to keep the sport alive and measure my capabilities against the others. We’ll see where it takes me. Last year, when I started the CrossFit and participated the first time, I could make 3 out of 5 workouts as described. Rx’d, as they say. This year my target is to get all 5 workouts done as Rx’d (or at least with correct weights) and finalize them, regardless on how far I go. We’ll see about that 😀
