Garage Games / Three’s Company – RESULTS!!

Today was an amazing day. I have never ever participated in such an extreme physical competition. I began CrossFit at BTB Fitness on January 31st. After a weeks worth of Dynamic Training, I have tried to continue as much as possible. I know I am a newbie and still do workouts at scaled levels. I by no means am in the physical condition required to compete in such a well organized competition. I probably should have not participated. I know, I am crazy and did it anyway.

This was a huge learning experience. I only told two people at BTB that I was going to compete and felt bad not answering Jeff’s question on Friday “if anyone was doing something exciting this weekend?” I guess I didn’t tell anyone because I felt I would have been asked “Why?” or told “I wasn’t ready”. I now have the courage to share my experience today because I was able to hang in there and do the routines. I think I would have done really well if my conditioning/endurance was better. And it will improve.

I probably came in dead last, and I am ok with that. I saw people who were in much better physical shape than me who did the RX and saw them fail and not complete the WOD’s. So I didn’t feel bad at all. Some people I felt should have done scaled.

I joined Three’s Company on the recommendation of a friend, Sung Kong, who works out at CrossFit Peachtree and co-owner of soon to open CrossFit HD in Chamblee. He said they would have scaled Wod’s and felt I could do it. So I joined. I prepared by trying to go to CrossFit at BTB as much as possible trying to learn the correct forms.

Now for the juicy parts….

Let’s look at the WOD’s

I woke up around 6am, showered and took off for CrossFit Dahlonega where part 2, Three’s Company of the Garage Games was going to happen. I stopped by Waffle house and tried to have a vegetable omelet.

I arrived and saw my friend Sung and he invited me to join his group that had set up a tent. Everyone was so nice and welcoming. I knew I was an outsider so I just played it cool.

This is how the day went

  • Men RX
  • Women RX
  • Men Scaled
  • Women Scaled

They had at least 2-4 heats in each class

Judging:

They had a lot of judges. Each competitor was assigned 1 to  2 judges that made sure the rep was completed properly. The judges not only counting the reps for you but were extremely encouraging and even coached you to do better. They were excellent!!!!!!

My heats were:

  • 10:40am – Janet
  • 2:01pm – Chrissy
  • 5:15pm – Tripper

Results:

Men’s Scaled

“Janet” (8 minute time limit) You better get some in this one!!

5 rounds for time of:

  • 3 Squat cleans – 115#
  • Row 10 calories

DID NOT FINISH – I had 7 calories left but ran out of time. The judge felt bad for me because I was hauling/rowing my ass off trying to beat the clock.

“Chrissy” (10 minute time limit) Totally doable but who will do it with the fastest time?

3 rounds for time of:

  • Row 300 meters
  • 30 Double unders (90 single unders)
  • Rope climb, 15 feet (10 jumping rope pull-ups)

FINISHED – Time of 9:54. I did not do the rope climb because I knew it would eat up my time. Plus I was a bit fatigued.

“Tripper”  (13 minute AMRAP) Muscular and cardio respiratory endurance anyone? 75lbs.

  • 3 burpee squat cleans
  • 3 burpee thrusters
  • 3 burpee snatch
  • Run 200 meters

1 round and 6 – I got stuck on burpee snatch, this by far killed my time. I could not for the life of me do a proper overhead squat with 75 pounds. The weight was easy for the cleans and thrusters. I could not hold the bar over my head while going below parallel on my squats. No matter how hard I activated my shoulders. Then a judge from another competitor told me to turn my elbows out. Voila!!! It was so easy then, but too late.

I have plenty of pictures and will post more shortly.

I was so unprepared. I did not have food or water for the day. It never dawned on me that I should have packed snacks and meals. I was about to run to the store to buy stuff after my first heat when Sung stopped me and said he had plenty and could share with me. What a blessing. I know now how to prepare and what to expect for my next event 😉
