Baby steps - I made it firm when I registered for the CrossFit Regional Games, AKA – The SWQUAL. Competing in the CrossFit Games has been a goal since I attended my cert in Cali last summer (Amazing Trip!). This year there is a regional qualifier where as last year was an open free for all. Shows you how much the sport of fitness is growing! So I'm signed up…big deal, so are thousands of other so-called athletes. I'm not sure how it's going to go down, but what I do know is that I'm no where near fast enough, strong enough, or coordinated enough to walk away as one of the top 5 female athletes in the southwest region….
Not YET that is…
The clock is ticking. Exactly 106 days, that's 15 weeks. Seriously, I'm obsessed and all consumed with planning my training, my meals, and the balancing act I'll need to perform daily to get there. I obviously put a lot of mental energy into this. Like Jolie, Nicole, Eva T., Annie, and Carey I want to be super human, I want to do the impossible!
Off-the-cuff, here is the list of things I plan on accomplishing in the next 15 weeks:
-Muscle Ups - I'm close. I did a wimpy one but I think I used too much jump to hoist my way up
-250 lb back squat-last PR was at 200
-200 lb Dead Lift - I'm really close
-Paleo 7 days a week
-Sub 4 minute FRAN
-5 mile run with ease - These legs were built for strength, not speed!
-20 Pull ups in a row....Every time!
-"GRACE" - I'm ashamed to admit I've never attempted this WOD.
-"MURPH" - Just the thought makes me want to grab Pukie and shake him!
I've got some work to do!
My plan of attack so far is Nutrition and CrossFit. My Fuel - One cheat meal a week rather than my normal eat everything in site on Saturdays and Sundays. My Acceleration - Follow Coach's work out of the day as Rx'ed on CrossFit.com. I’m logging all my info on CF CP’s forum. I welcome my peers to check in on me. It will keep me on my toes!
