And they did great. I have been on a couple of Throwdons and competitions and can compare them. It was well organized, we good some goodies and an event s-shirt (still hoping for tank tops for the girls one day). The location was the same like last year, more space was used this year. Schedule, heats and structure really good prepared and all the people had a lot of fun…
We started as a team again: “Chilli Vanilly 2.0”. It was my third competions in four weeks, so I was really tired and felt the stress on my body. The ggod thing was, that we only had to compete on Saturday because Sunday was just for individuals. The workouts were hard, 6 events, including one stupid (because I am bad at it 😉 ) squat snatch ladder.

It was more demanding than last year and the teams athlete field was much stronger (I think even stronger than the individuals).

We finished up 13th, which was not our goal. But we had some bad moments and bad luck with judges, getting no rep-ed and being super strict (too strict) with some of the movements which is annoying when u compare with other teams and their judges…

Saturday Partner WOD

I just love my Saturday mornings at the box with my wod partner in crime. He is the perfect workout match… 🙂

Afterwards I decided to take a rest and did not go back to the gym: great coffee, yummy food and little bit sightseeing in Berlin…

Saturday and Sunday = rest time 26/11&27/11

My parents were in town and we celebrated Thanksgiving, so there was no time to workout because I wanted to spend my time with them. My mom and I had a great thai massage on Saturday before dinner, so it was a nice break from my workout routine, even I always do feel bad about not training… 😉
