First Crossfit Competition!

12310659_10205882151996883_77438485608975571_n (2)               This weekend I participated in a two-day Crossfit competition at Crossfit Singular Box.  It was my first-ever competition and I’m really happy to have completed it!  I was overwhelmed by the support from the coaches and members of the gym.  It really is an incredible group of people.  Although we were competing, everyone cheered each other on and showed such great sportsmanship.  It was really impressive and says a lot about the atmosphere of the box.

The competition took place on Saturday and Sunday.  There were three WODs (Workouts of the Day) on Saturday and two on Sunday.  Below I have included a chart of the WODs that everyone completed and the modifications that were made for me.  The coaches did a really good job of making my exercises just as difficult for me as they were for everyone else.  I ended up in seventh place out of thirteen girls. Not so bad for a first-timer!
