Workout of the Day for Monday 01/11/10
Run 200 m / Row 250 m
The Orange County Throwdown was a blast. Lilia and I met a lot of cool people, participated in some grueling workouts (2 on Saturday, 2 on Sunday), and enjoyed soaking in that Southern California atmosphere. I’ll write-up my experience soon and post it here. For now you can check out information and pictures on the Orange Coast CrossFit blog: http://orangecoastcrossfit.com/
Gary Baron, from Lincoln, came in 5th! Valeria Calhoun (14 years old), from Rocklin, won the women’s intermediate division! I survived all four workouts and you can bet I am sore!
If you get a chance to participate in a CrossFit event, it’s probably the most amazing sports atmosphere you will ever experience. It will probably be the most fun working out you will ever have. We have the Sac Town Throwdown Affiliate team competition coming up on Saturday Feb 13 – I need final confirmation on who wants to be on a team. It’s $50 per team and a team is made of 2 men and 2 women. We also have the Nor Cal Sectional Qualifier for the CrossFit Games which is open to ALL who want to participate. CrossFit is for all athletes at all levels. Everyone should take advantage of the opportunity to workout out in a Constantly Varied setting like one of these events. It will add another element of excitement, anticipation, and intensity to your effort.
Yes, it is a competition, but more importantly, it is seeing what you are made of, challenging yourself, and ultimately – it is just you against the workout…
Here is a picture of me and Gary during the first workout – “Exponential”. I am in the red shirt on the pull-up bar and Gary is in the black shirt next to me.
