Crossfit Open Wod 12.1

Another reason why I was really excited for clean healthy eating is because I signed up for the 2012 Crossfit Open.  After crossfitting for 3 years now, this is a first for me.  Talk about personal challenge to push myself on an entirely new level.  I signed up for the team portion at Northwest Crossfit in Bellevue, my home box, and it has been a journey in itself as I get to do it also with Gabe by my side competing.  How FUN is that that we get to do it together ... perfect if you ask me.  The open is 5 weeks long with 5 separate workouts (1 a week), which determines the qualifies for the 2012 Crossfit Games this summer in LA.


This past Wednesday at 5pm, the WOD was posted for 60,000 contestants around the world.  7minutes of as many burpees as possible.

This workout was honestly more mentally challenging then most of our crossfit workouts, and I had to look at it strategically because 7 minutes is longgggg ya'll!  We got both of our workouts on video, but I will save you from 7 minutes of boredom watching the same exercise over and over again ;)


I completed it Saturday with a goal of at least hitting getting 95 burpees in 7 minutes and super high stretch of reaching 100.  After all was said and done I got 99 with .2 seconds away from my 100th burpee.  So of course being the crazy determined person I am, I did it again on Sunday and put myself through torture again and got 105!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yay YAY!!!


I had some serious anxiety going into this workout, and I'm hoping with this first WOD behind me that I will be more relaxed.  I don't think my body can handle the stress I put on myself for the next 4 weeks!!!  But, I put on my competitive face when I needed to unlike Gabe who just came out blazing like a true athlete.  


Gabe finished WOD 12.1 being #22 in the region out of #2,039, and worldwide he is ranked #266 out of #34,389. Ugh that's top 1% in our the northwest and the world.  I am beyond proud of him as he has only been crossfitting for a year.  And I didn't do too shabby myself coming in #155 out of #1,425.  Great day with the Seattle Smith's representing:  Both of our scores contributed to our gyms total team score as they take the top 3 women's score and top 3 men's score.


But, here are our team Northwest Crossfit Bellevue results woohoo!!!


Happy crossfitting!!
Anyone else in the Crossfit Open??
