Did Team Blue fuel on donuts?
Check out Carmen's recap of Team Blue's experience in Part I of the CrossFit Team Series.
I loved the workouts! I felt as if we pushed each other beyond our day to day efforts. There are definitely weaknesses we all possess, but having the team there relying upon you gives a different dynamic to giving 100%.
No doubt I would have quit the thruster/pull up workout if not knowing my team was waiting on me to finish my reps to advance. 30 pull-ups are damn near impossible for me to finish in any reasonable amount of time, but I had to finish! Jason, Shaun, and Alma were right there motivating me to keep moving - one pull-up at a time. I can't forget the judges - Jen and Kristi - they kept pushing me as I slowly chipped away at each rep. This was one workout I can say my mind went into another state. I had to have blacked out to finish those reps.
Clean and jerk event was my favorite. I would love to do this one again. I think we could double our reps the second time around. Ha!
I think we are ranked 80th, but I am not sure I know how to read this leaderboard. Like Alma, I thought we were ranked in the high 50s.
