How did you like the CrossFit Games 2011? Awesome!
Which WOD did you like the most + why? The last one (Killer Cage), it was fun and we ended up in 8th place overall 🙂:)
Which WOD did you dislike the most + why? The Clean WOD definately! Too much energy went into figuring out the pounds and which weights we would get.. Us girls didn’t get the red ones (25kg) like we were told and so there weren’t any weights for 63 to 70kg. We panicked, started in 70kg which was too much and I ended up with 52kg, 21kg from my best! The ropes also took more out of us than we anticipated and 2 of the boys were far from their best. So we ended up in 40th place instead of 12-14th if everything had worked out better.
Are your satisfied with your training leading up to the Games? Yes, I was in good shape at the Games.
Are your satisfied with your effort and placement at the Games? Yes the effort (aside from the 50 burpees penalty I got!) but no for the placement. But we did have fun!! 🙂:)
How could you prepare better for next year – would you change something? Get stronger and faster and lighter and …. heheh
