Well crap. From a personal standpoint I completely failed on this day. With 30 total competitors in my group, I came in 29th on the day. Dead last on workout 1, got only 10 handstand push ups (needed 30, plus a 1000 meter row...), then botched my 225# attempt on the thruster. My 215# attempt was so easy and I went to the next bar feeling very comfortable; I cleaned it, squatted down and began to drive back up. The second the bar came off my shoulders i knew I was going to miss it. With the VERY strict standards they were keeping, I was not able to move my feet at all and when the bar came off my shoulders a little forward, I had no chance to recover. Oh well!
Tomorrow are two workouts I feel very good about and I have to tear them both up like crazy if i want a shot to make it on to the third day. Only the top 14 go to day 3 and I need to bring my A-game.
Besides my embarrassing performance on the day, it was so awesome! So many people working their buts off, even more people cheering everyone one, man oh man was it cool. I think tomorrow is going to be the most intense day of the three, so I am looking forward to it the most.
thanks to everyone for all the good luck wishes and following along. i promise to do better tomorrow, and I apologize for such a poor performance today.
