CrossFit Games Open WOD 12.1 - Done
Did I mention I signed up for the Open? Did I mention I did it this morning? Did I mention that I’m disappointed in my score?
Did I also mention I’ve been having inflamed knee issue that has creeped it’s ugly head for the past two weeks?
About the last 3 minutes of the hellish 7 minutes it starts to ache. More than likely because I’m exhausted and start to jump more on the balls of my feet rather than flat like I’m supposed to. I tried to be very mindful of Carl Paoili’s video about a great burpee.
I would do another attempt tomorrow for a better score but I don’t want to further aggravate my knee. I should listen to my body.
Day 10 - Lunch Nom
Turkey Breast Plate from Comfort Cafe (of Fred Segals) ordered with no rice and extra veggies (and pico de gallo side). Okay, I like veggies like the rest of ‘em, but their steamed veggie mix includes celery AND green peppers, my two arch enemies. Y’all know how I feel about celery.
I know I’ve lagged on posting everyday for the Paleo/Primal challenge, but I’ve been busy with my new adorable and cute niece! Rest assured I have stayed in the challenge.
Guess what gal is doing another mud challenge??? THIS girl.
Spartan Race! Click photo for race info/obstacle info! Spear throwing? Hell yes!
And I have plenty of time to work on my running because I’ve been lagging on that!

So this is us before the race with our outfits, Viking Vixens! Warrior Dash 2010, ready?
This is the back of our shirts! You’re all probably wondering…Ox? Hehe…yes, it’s one of my nicknames…one I’ve had for like 6 or so years. And no, it’s not as insulting as it can sound. I’ll explain one day, but it basically refers to me being “as strong as an ox”.
And us AFTER the dash! Pretty muddy, eh? Hahah it was great! But what you don’t see is there is some mud on my face, even got some in my mouth!
One of the big reasons we did this challenge? HEFEWEIZEN! Lol, get a free beer for completing!
Our sexy shoes after the dash, muddy as hell!
We get medals as we cross the finish line! And they’re real medal, yay!
We haven’t checked out times (we each had a timing chip on our shoes), got to check online, but we think we made it in around 35-40 min. Not too bad for a 3.1 mile course with 10 obstacles that includes, jumping hay stacks, jumping junk cars, walking the plank, running through tires, jumping wood walls, climbing a net, crawling through tunnel tubes, knee-waist in water going over rolling logs, running through mud and last but not least, crawling through mud under barbed wire.
All in all a VERY fun experience, and definitely going to do it again next year and have a bigger group going! People this time around were lame and either wary about it or claimed to be broke…they have till next year to find their balls or save money this time.
Guess who doesn’t have THIS face anymore when doing push-ups?
If you recall, I’ve been doing the Hundred Push-Up Challenge. I’m going on Week 3, I’m not gonna lie, it’s getting harder and harder because obviously it’s more and more day by day, but I feel great and a sense of accomplishment doing them.
