So two weeks ago, James and I competed in CrossFit Earned's "Clash of the Couples" competition, crossing off one of my new year's goals - to compete in a non-[ocn] CrossFit competition. The competition was broken into RX and Scaled divisions (we competed in the scaled division) with 24 teams in each. It was definitely a fun day and a different approach to competition. Since there were nearly ten gyms contributing teams, going in, we had no idea what we were up against. There was no "chasing down" another team because the couple to our left could have been a clear cut winner or just as easily come in last place. I loved not being concerned with anyone but myself and it really helped me focus on what I can personally accomplish.
James and I placed 14th out of 24th teams, which I was really happy with. We both set personal records in our lifts and got the opportunity to both train and compete together, which is sometime I really enjoyed.
In other CrossFit news, I managed to string together 27 double unders on Saturday and while my kipping pull-ups and toes-to-bar haven't fully clicked, I feel like there's definitely progress in the right direction. I completed my first met con without assisted (banded) pull-ups this week and although my score was low, I know I'm closer to being able to perform the movements prescribed.
