I have entered the CFMG/858/Elysium Throwdown — my first CrossFit competition. Here’s what happened: A couple of nights ago I woke up at 2am and couldn’t get back to sleep (that thing where you wake up and think, shit, I hope it’s 5am because I’m completely awake and then you look at your watch at it’s 1 or 2 and zap, it’s a desperate situation). So I got up, thought about having some coffee but didn’t, flipped on the computer and on Facebook saw that the Throwdown had been announced. I entered on the spot—$40 for the November 12 event. Three WODS over the course of the day in a competition between CrossFit Mission Gorge, Crossfit 858 and Crossfit Elysium.
So today, October 1, I began training for it.
1:15 easy run
Burgener warmup practice with a broomstick
Handstand progression practice (good session. I didn’t kill myself)
