  • How did you like the CrossFit Games 2011? LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
  • Which WOD did you like the most + why? Rope climb + clean. 1) it was an interesting new combination and hard to predict how much strength you had back for the clean after climbing the rope several times, 2) it was mentally challenging because you only had a certain number of bumper plates available and had to chose a strategy for the clean in order to get a lift or more in the book within the 2 min. time cap, 3) I managed to hit my PB in the clean at that time = 75 kg./165 lbs.
  • Which WOD did you dislike the most + why? I liked all the WODs – disliked the lack of information given to teams regarding WODs, standards, number of participants etc.
  • Are your satisfied with your training leading up to the Games? YES! A year ago I could’nt walk after having given birth to my son (c-section) and had to learn all CrossFit exercises over again + work on strength and endurane. Not quite back yet – but getting there. I’m also satisfied with our team training leading up to the Games – we have improved a lot as a team in the period between the Regionals and the Games.
  • Are your satisfied with your effort and placement at the Games? I think it takes some years to get used to giving it your all at the Games. It was our first time as a team at the Games (only Ditte and I had tried it before in 2009), and I’m sure, that we will come back stronger next time and do much better. It’s also interesting to compete as a team – you need the ENTIRE team to perform their best in order to do well. That’s something we have to work on.
  • How could you prepare better for next year – would you change something? I will keep working on stregth, skills and endurance – and never get lazy. Follow my daily training here.
