I love this post… Because I was the half size girl next to Ben when he did his first wod at our box in Shanghai…

Last WODS at Reebok CrossFit MeWellness 28/6/14

As soon as the wods were over I got a bit sad because it was done…, weird feeling. In the last couple of months I got so used to the box, the people, the workouts. It was a community, a challenge and so many new experiences. How could I aver thought of making it to the Asian regionals. And now it was time to say goodbye. The only good thing was the good bye dinner in the evening which one of my crossfitters organized for me, so at least I did not have to say food bye right after the wod. Instead we got drunk at night which it made easier to say “zài jiàn”.

Sunday at Icarus – WOD Trial 22/6/14

Friends of mine open a box very soon:

On Sunday I went there for a trial wod and I really liked it. The box is right to the service apartment I lived when I arrived in Shanghai last August and it is also only a 20 min bike ride to the German school. Mmh, they asked me to work as coach there… which would be a great opportunity but I am leaving…

WOD amrap 3 min for 5 rounds, 2 min rest in between
5 burpees
5 box jumps
5 wall balls (15lbs)

cash out
partner med ball sit ups (50 with, 50 without 15 lbs ball)
I always finished four rounds and 1-3 burpees. Afterwards we went for Margaritas, bad choice 😉

Shanghai Shake Up 21/6/14

Because of the one year anniversary of Reebok CrossFit MeWellness there was a competition at the box. I was a bit unmotivated because after all the regionals work and trainings I just wanted to relax and not being competitive… I also was worried to screw up… Between 35 and 40 people competed. Vanessa and me were the only girls who did the RX version of the workouts. MeWellness made a nice video to advertise so called “Shake Up”:

Beside the workouts there was also other stuff going on:

CrossFit kids demonstration
stalls: Rocktape, Vcleanse, BBQ, Yoga trial, Djane, raffle…

The wods were nice

10 calories row (each time)
wall balls
burpess (time: 12.56 min, second fastest after this young tall guy Ben)

2) AMRAP 7 min
7 deadlift (155/215)
103 reps (of course, Ben was better, haha)

At the end of the day the winners were announced, haha: Ben and me won the first prize and got some nice goodies, as u can see on the pic (a big package of fresh vegetables from Kate and Kimi, a huge protein powder, haha: another one….- awesome, gift cards and vouchers). It was a great day and a good almost saying goodbye thing… 🙂
