So me and big Fredd decided to go to eataly for som pizza vine pasta and beaches. But on our way to the beach after the mornig pizza we stumbled upon a crossfit competition , and just for fun we decided to join the competition (why not lissom)The first wod was a 6 min amrap of 30 du and 15 thruster @30kg a short movie will show what went down
I got 4 rounds plus some change pretty ok and at least I qualified for Hardman and not beginner :)The second wod they had a lotteryto decide witch one, and it was betwen Helen Grace or Isabel , the only one I didnt really like was helen because of low pullup bars , so offcourse Helen was the wod that was drawn :DPretty shitty pace by me on the running on helen so ended up on a 9th place , not god at all :(So if I wanted to be in the final I needed to harden the fuck up and do good here was my only small option ,
The chipper was it called and it was announced beforehand ,some of the athletes maybe had tryied it before , I dont knowbut the timecap was 8 minutes And YES offcourse it starts of with some strict handstand pushups but i have been practicing so…. the wod was 5 strict Hspu 10 t2b 15 boxjump over 20 onearm kb snatch alternating 24kg 25 deadlift 60kg 10 meter frontrack walking lunge 25 deadlift 10 meter frontrack walking lunge and then back so 20 onearm kb snatch 15 bj over ,10 t2bar and finnish of with 5 strict hspu. I let the movie show you what happened
the time was 7:47 and I won that wod and no one else finnished it so I htfu , but unfortnately it wasnt enough I came in short and missed the final by 1 point !Think something went wrong in the counting from the first wod think I was 4 or 5 , but didnt wanna try to argue all in all it was a great and super fun competition and I wanna go back to diano marina and do another competition who will join ?Almost forgot to tell you about Fredrikke who also competed for the first time ever and went total beastmode on some events , The first Wod she started of a little bit nervous and the double unders wasnt 100% solid but the thrusters were good, on the second one helen she went full retard and was throwing kettlebells screaming on norwegian english and latin to the poor italian judge On the chipper she was fastest of everyone in the handrelease pushups (insted of strictshspu) but she never done a knee to elbow, and before the wod she thought she was going to quit but htfu and going into it a goal to do 1 knee to elbow, and she did all ten
and manage to trow some more kettlebells at the judges little bit surprised of the 16 kg kb that was said to be 12kg she did a real solid effort and did some great snatches while singing the intro to rocky 4
The best part with the vacation was all the new nice people we meet , Alessandro the photografer Allessandro the Coach the people from albenga the people from crossfit Lugnano who helped us out with the language , Arianna who guided us to the best food, Andrea Manzone who cheared on me ! And a super fun thing for me was the nicknames I got :) ask me or big Fredd and we will tell you if you wanna know ?
23 place not exactely what we was hoping for , and we had the capasity to be better , but things just didnt turn out that way , event by event – the first one muscle ups and c&j the one we finished at training , would we finnish it at regionals we would have been at second place , but yeah we didnt have a plan for things not going our way so we didnt come second here Event 2 hang snatch , here I blacked out bigtime its much to say about this one but nervous stressed and bad focus sums it up pretty well , in the next event handstand walk I made my 3 meters why I didnt walk further can also be a mystery because I had pretty good balance but it just seemed so f€$£cking long to the next stripe :/ so after day one we was on a solid 29 place and the road to games could seem a bit hard , so not sink any deeper on the list of teams was a good start (30 teams in total) day 2 Eivind watched 300 movie on the way to the arena so we where supposed to dine in hell but when we knew we sat in almost last place we needed to harden the fuck up and we did- Eivind did some thrusters (only 53) I gave him 3 bonus of mine , we did some rope climbs ended up second in our heat AND WE WHERE GOING TO THE GAMES as Immortalls . Next event strict handstand pushups and something more , E and D did their reps fast and distinct but our judge was definetly from deutchland , so booth D and E did some bonus reps for jesus , and it was my turn with a solid sinuitis (bihullebetenelse) upside down was just a perfect movement I mean I had like 2 reps before so here was something I should crush but we can just blame hitler things didnt really become crushed and it even took to long so the girls didnt have time to crush it either well well . Day 3 was coming in and it started of with a event we knew we was going to do good and we did we won everything ….. And dined at hot buns… Last event pullups and overhead squats we had 16 minutes to finnish it and in training we made it in only 35 minutes so going in to this one we knew things might be complicated – but I got to tell ya know 2 weeks after im still sore in the lats and shoulders from thoose pullups and oh squats !
Sum it up with a supergood experience, epic weekend with a lot laughing and really charged for next year and big ups for everyone participating – the Team – the fans at home and the fans at the tribune – our massageteam – the au pair – and crossfit oslo who have build us ATHLETES !
