Southern Club Lift
Magically, out on the stage with my first squat, I came right! The 90kg felt easy and light so I did the next at 100kg and then a successful, if slow, 107.5kg. Good start. My mate Mel got a good 85kg squat.
My friend Mel from Remarkables CrossFit came too to support me and have a go herself. It was good to have a mate there.
Big ups to OAWLA for hosting a well run lift, especially with all the newbies there. There was three referees, five loaders/spotters, three people crunching numbers and one announcing the whole afternoon. Rather a lot of work, and all voluntary. Those people are awesome.
Meanwhile Hard Working Husband had taken the kids out to the pool, the museum and visiting relatives in Dunedin. We took the kids to Great Taste, an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant. It was a treat after the day's heavy lifting! We waddled our food babies back to the crib, and then the beach and home to Arrowtown the next day.
Open WoD 15.3
Righteo, I'm off to bed. I need to drag my bruised ego up early to do 14 minutes of light wall balls and single skips. Dave Castro may think I'm scaled, but I can deadlift like a Games Athlete. So there.
Update: Open WoD 15.3 Scaled
I felt much better about it all when I saw so many other scaled workouts on the leaderboard. In fact, only six females in Otago and Southland got a score for it Rx.
Using the results I could glean from Beyond the Whiteboard, I made some calculations. These are not 100% accurate as I couldn't determine the exact numbers from the data I had available, and I an unable to accurately correct for variables such as which gender might be more likely to log their workouts on the online platform. Also, I am an artist and not a statistician.
The muscle up is one of the signature moves of CrossFit so it's no surprise that it has been used to draw a line between the Cans and the Cannots, the Rx and the Scaled.
