Affiliate Cup Throwdown @CF East Sacramento!
10:15 - WOD #1
3 Rep Max Thruster (Best of 3 Attempts)
- Nigel 185; Alex 185; Libby 95; Sarah 80.
Max Set Double Unders (Best of 3 Attempts)

That put us in 11th place, I think. They tallied scores and put us in reverse order for the afternoon WOD.
3:15 - WOD #2
3 Rounds For Max Reps:
45 sec GHD Sit Ups (15 sec Rest) - 24, 21, 17
45 sec Clean & Jerk 135/85, (Rest) - 4, 3, 4
45 sec Burpee Vertical Leap Touching Target 104in/96in, (Rest) - 1, 6, 5
45 sec Chest to Bar Pull Ups, (Rest) - 4, 6, 4
My first round was really sloppy. I started on the pull-ups and did alright, and then did a bunch of sit-ups (25) so I was really shaky for the clean & jerks - had one icky fall when my back gave out on the jerk. And then I couldn't jump high enough on the burpees - just got 1 rep. Rounds 2 and 3 went better - I hit my stride, focused on using my hips.
Our team got 490 total reps, which was better than all of the teams who had gone before us, so we at least held seed! We ended up 8th overall. Santa Cruz won. Pretty inspiring to watch the top teams... especially the uber-graceful butterfly pull-ups and perfectly crisp clean-and-jerks.
Now everyone is talking about sectionals, and I'm trying to decide if I want to go. Stuff I liked about the Throwdown: hanging out with my teammates; seeing CrossFitters from all over Northern CA. Stuff I didn't like: being so full of epinephrine I couldn't think straight and couldn't control my body; sitting in a parking lot for 5 hours (at least it was sunny and warm out!). The intense parts were a little too intense, the slow parts were too slow. Maybe next time I'll have a better idea of what to expect, so I'll like it better? Hmm.
