My performances were not that good but they are okay for a team to qualify, Mostly upper part stuff, almost no legs (just rowing and burpee box jumps- both not my fav after being not so tall and my ankle injury), nothing long just short and things I am not the best in 😉

Yesterday I just did the class and the welded athlete metcon which hurt… 😉

2 rounds of:
50-ft. weighted walking lunge

Sunday French Throwdown

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Sunday there were only two wods left before the final wods. The cut was after ten teams… First wod was not really a wod:

timecap 8 minutes
– each member has to find his/her one rep max hang squat snatch, only one person is allowed to be on the platform for the lift. The guys started and both of them did 90kg, I think… Then it was our turn. Me and my lifts – no best friends… BUT, I pr’d. I got 50 kg which is huge for me and my horrible technique! I was not expecting it!!!! The other girl started with 55kg and made it up to 60kg, haha depressing in comparing to me. But still, for me and my snatch problems, I was happy with my lift, just do not look around and see what other girls can do… 😉

Then there was a long break before our last wod and it involved swimming… Uahhhhh…, again sth I do not really like
Timecap was extended to 14 min:
Female, Female, Male, Male Order, everyone has to do:

-50 m swim
-20 sandbag ground to shoulder
– run about 300m to the track and field area
– 30 (stupid) dumbbell thruster (15/16kg – Hahaha, depends on the dumbbells you get)

The next team member can start when the one before has finished the sandbags.
Well the swim was interesting but again I was not the only one who was a bit slower…, my jump into the water was legendary and made the people behind me laugh. The sandbag thing was alright, the run without socks and open shoes was okay as well, the thrusters sucked. I had to rest a couple of times because they were heavy, our first male already was there when I finished my last reps but it was okay because he did all of his 30 unbroken :O and the last from our team was not there yet when he had finished. But they “only” had 2x20kg which is easier in comparing to our 2x15kg (yeah, we gor the lighter dumbbells). Our last person did his thrusters also very quick and we finished up 9th during that event, pretty nice spot!!!!

Overall we mad 15th which is not that bad out of 40 teams for the first time competing as a team and at the French Throwdown. The only thing that still annoys me is my bad performance with the OHS wod. We could have done much better if I did not screw up that one so bad!!!!!!! 😦

On the other hand the final wods were brutal and really not easy for me:

2 wods, two members – male+female – work together, everyone only has to take part in one wod:

event 6
15-12-9
synchronized back squats (60(80kg)
synchronized muscle ups

event 7
heavy synchronized DT
3 rounds
12-9-6
deadlift, hang power clean, push jerk (60kg,80kg)

Uff, I am good a back squats but my muscle ups are not the best – and then synchronized, no problem for our guys.
The weight for DT is heavy for me, also this one would have been difficult for me, sounds like lot of singles or doubles during the hpc and jerks. My partner would have been mad at me.

To sum up, I am still so far away from being a well rounded athlete, to many things I am not good and, my strengths (for oly lifts) is a problem, some of my skills are still not very good. I can do all movements but have still so many problems with the technique…, well, well, well…

The rest of the day I enjoyed the competition, watched the heats, bought some nice stuff from the stalls and ate sth. We left the venue around 6pm, head to the airport and flew back to Berlin.

Overall a nice competition with stupid not so well planned team wods, some struggle but also fun moments…
