It went better than it did two weeks ago. It was slow, but I made it. Reply AK on September 8, 2013 at 2:47 pm Yeah girl! Way to go!!! Reply AK on September 8, 2013 at 2:57 pm A HUGE CONGRATS to Amie, Sara C and Heather V for their Title IX tri accomplishments today! Vineyard Warrior Olympic Triathlon: 2:56:11…wicked slow for the distance, but everyone suffered on the swim with a monster current…and red jellyfish, watch out! The good thing about Mother Nature is that everyone is dealing with the same conditions. Not everyone is a CFNE crossfitter though. Mental toughness and pushing through the challenging physical spots earned a first place finish in the 21-30 age group! Again, I would never have achieved this accomplishment without my CFNE family. Reply Colleen (OC) on September 8, 2013 at 3:17 pm Holy crap, that is awesome!!! Congrats!!! Reply Wendy P on September 8, 2013 at 4:35 pm WOW!!! Congratulations! Reply Laura c on September 8, 2013 at 5:41 pm So impressive to All of you! Swimming scares me in open water so huge kudos!! Reply Andrea Frey on September 8, 2013 at 5:58 pm Amazing!!!! So awesome Reply Sara C on September 8, 2013 at 6:16 pm FIRST PLACE! AK, you are inspiring, awesome and humble. Today was a great day all around! And you are right, CF trains us to be ready for anything. Reply Jen W on September 8, 2013 at 7:30 pm Super awesome – congrats! Reply Jill on September 8, 2013 at 3:08 pm FS: 5 @ 105, 5 @ 110#. PU: first set at 10#, last sets at 7# Sit ups: 15# Fun lifting with you today OC! Reply Colleen (OC) on September 8, 2013 at 3:17 pm We killed it today!!!! Pit crew was on fire!!! Reply Georgia on September 8, 2013 at 6:15 pm FS: 10 x 95# and 1 @ 105# for good measure (happens to be a PR for me, too!) strict PU’s with blue band equivalent Sit Ups @ 15# Reply Sara C on September 8, 2013 at 6:55 pm Did my first tri today — the Hopkinton Title IX for women. This was actually my FIRST EVER organized athletic competition (unless you count high school swim meets in which I’m pretty sure I came in DFL every time). 400m swim, 10 mile bike, 5k run. I finished in 1:35 am and super happy with that. I am absolutely blown away by how much my CF training helped me with this race. I’m pretty sure that prior to CF, I would never have even thought about doing a tri, nor would I have had what it took to finish, let alone finish strong. Not only does CF make our muscles stronger, our running faster, etc., but it also teaches us so well how to push through pain (it’s temporary…) and to be comfortable with odd transitions between movements. When someone asked me my motivation for doing this, I said it’s because I wanted to prove to myself that I am an athlete after all. And, as Greg Glassman says, I wanted to use my CF training to “learn and play new sports.” Mission accomplished! HUGE congrats to Heather Vitti and Amie Stowe who did the tri as well and kicked my ass in the process. And to Amanda Klein, who did a brutal tri today on the Vineyard and came in FIRST in her age category. Way to rock it, ladies! Reply Jen W on September 8, 2013 at 7:31 pm So proud of you Sara! Way to work it! Reply AK on September 8, 2013 at 8:40 pm Yeah Lady! Way to GOOOOOO – You are an official TRIATHLETE! Here’s to learning and enjoying many more new sports ;-D Reply KJ on September 9, 2013 at 10:00 am FS: 215# Pull up: 30# first set, 35# remaining four, Sit Up: 30# 5×3 banded HSPU Reply Trackbacks/Pingbacks #WODsohard | Sunday 09.08.13 - […] September 7, 2013 Categories: CrossFit New England […] Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
