Well Hubs and I are officially signed up for the EUROPA Get Fit & Sports Expo, Beast of the East Qualifier! We are very excited and as expected a little nervous. Besides the small throwdown I went to at a local gym before the Garage Games last year I have not even attempted to compete as an individual in a competition like this! We did do the Team Comp so we have an idea of what to expect, but man... when I signed up for an individual woman in the Rx division... I think I about fainted!
Look where I have come from and look where I am going! Its empowering to know that I have come to the point where I feel I can hold my own in a competition. It helps that they have listed the WOD's that we will be doing at the comp on the website so we can train and be as prepared as possible.
I am certainly not one to give up a challenge, so Hubs and I heading down to CT for this competition! Its going to be some major excitement and probably a little anxiety driven at the same time!! I am looking forward to the adrenalin rush that I get during a competition. Hubs and I will support each other and kick some butt!!
Having said all that... the next month is practice, practice, practice!!
Whenever I get the chance for the next month I will be working my goats and my skills to get where I want to be for the competition. I am lucky enough to have great coaching in M, K and Hubs and will be able to get my cleans where they need to be for speed and movement as well as my pullups. I spent an hour with M tonight working away at my cleans. Felt fantastic and I really needed the breakdown of the movement. I need to be able to put more weight up on a clean for this comp so proper form is necessary! I wont be able to muscle through it without risk of injury.
I am really excited to see where I am in a month! The changes coming to CFW are fantastic, the coaching is better than ever and we are growing and getting stronger both as individuals and as a team!
