Crossfit Comp #2 “THE DUO” (A Partner Competition…yes, someone had to put up with me)

I realized I forgot to write about my second crossfit competition experience which was a partner competition! FORGIVE ME!!! Okay, really, I know you guys don’t particularly care about this stuff like I do but I’m still going to document it for future reference.

“The Duo” at Crossfit Artis.

My partner: David (a guy who puts up with my awful jokes every morning at 5:30am and still decided to be my partner.)

It was a 2 day event. Saturday and Sunday with the top 3 teams competing in the final Event.

Event 1: Both partners Squat clean every 15 seconds for 6 minutes (Men’s weight 135#, Women’s 95#) then if you complete all 24 squat cleans you have the 7th minute to complete as many hand release lateral barbell burpees as possible. I got 27. Team “Snatch and Sniff” (that’s me and David) came in 2nd in that event.

 

Event 2 and 3: Partner 1 (that was me) runs 1000m while Partner 2 (David) does as many squats possible for 15 seconds at the start of every minute until I get back then we switch. I got back in the fastest time out of all the heats and just so happened to tag him as the start of the minute began so I immediately started squatting. My judge was awesome, pushed me to get at least 16 squats.  Event 2 is fastest total time for both runs.
Event 3 is total reps air squats. We won those events.Megan_boyer_crossfit_4

Event 4: Men will go first and will have 6 minutes to complete:

3 Deadlifts, 225# 3 Pullups 6 DL 6 PU 9 DL 9 PU….And so on until death. Just kidding, only until their 6 minutes is up.
Women will go second and will have 6 minutes to complete:
1 Deadlift, 155# 1 Pullup 3 DL 3 PU 5 DL 5 PU…. And so on until their 6 minutes has ended.

 I think I ended up getting through 1/3/5/7/9 and 4 reps into 11 of the deadlifts but I’m pretty sure I blacked out during this one so I don’t know for sure.DSC02354

That was the end of Day 1. David and I were sitting in first place. Obviously. (Just kidding, I was very surprised. You know, cause David is a pansy. KIDDING! He’s kinda badass….kinda.)

 

Day 2!!! Feeling good! A little under pressure but, hey, that’s what competitions are about right?

Event 5:
50 Single Unders
40 KB Swings (1.5/1) For non-crossfitters it was 55lbs/35lbs
30 Shoulder to Overhead (115/75)
20 Sit ups
5 Wall Walks

I watched teams completely break down during the first 2 heats (We were 3rd heat) and while I wasn’t too worried about the workout, I started getting super scared….I mean, people were STRUGGLING with this. Fastest time I had to beat by the time I went was 6:10. Okay, I can do that, right?!??! YOU KNOW IT! 5:15!!!!!!  We got 1st in that event too.

Top 3 teams competed in the Final Event……a 1 rep max snatch. My worst olympic lifting skill. Craptastic. Managed 105# but just wasn’t enough to make the top of the podium.

We placed 2nd overall and I have to say, I was tickled with that. 🙂 It was fun, well-organized, and my partner was pretty fricken awesome. My family and friends came to cheer us on and take loads of pics and videos. Seriously, so amazing and I was so sore the following days, I hated crossfit. Like, really hated it for a few days. I got over that though. Back to training hard for my next comp over Labor Day weekend. YIKES!  DSC02497
