Another Open season has come to a close.  This one was one of the most challenging seasons for me, second to the 2015 season when I broke my hand during 15.1.  It was challenging for many reasons, but primarily because of my pregnancy.  I had mental barriers, physical barriers, and just a pure lack of energy.     Overall though this Open has been fun.  I’ve accomplished things I didn’t think were possible as a pregnant athlete.   I was able to push myself to an uncomfortable zone and conquer some mental barriers that were in place for a variety of reasons.      I started out the Open with the goal of completing all the workouts at the RX level.  I knew that this wouldn’t be easy but it was my goal – and I was able to ACCOMPLISH it! This was such a good feeling 🙂   My placing has been all over the place these last five years that I’ve competed in the Open.  You see, when I started in the Open, there was one main division, RX.  There weren’t scaled divisions or breakdowns with state or profession.   While I think this is awesome that all athletes now […]

As my man Andy Frisella says, the people at the top didn’t just magically land there.   The success fairy didn’t just drop them at that top of the success mountain and BOOM they’re successful.      99% of them (rich, trust fund babies can be defined as the 1%) worked their assses off to get to the top.   Day in and day out, they had to grind for years … yes years, to get where they are today.      I’ve been slacking on posting my blog, and I apologize.   But, I have been super focused at chipping away at this success mountain and it’s been kicking my but majorly.      In my house, we don’t like to say that we’re overwhelmed, so we just say whelmed.  I’m whelmed like 98% of the time these days.   My plate is so freaking full.      There’s a human coming in four months, ready or not, we’re trying to build an additional home on our property (yaya for dealing with banks – not), we’re expanding the World’s Best Boot Camp to Orlando and Tampa, and Iron Legion is still knocking down doors.   I’m all over the damn place.      But […]

Oh 17.2

by ironborn· March 04, 2017· in Uncategorized· 0 comments
So, we’re officially knee deep in the CrossFit Open.  For those of you who are non-crossfitters, this is a worldwide competition for ANY and ALL athletes.  Regardless of your ability level, there is a workout that you can do.     With that being said, I went into this Open season with the goal of accomplishing all of the workouts at the RX standard to the best of my ability.  For some people, this may seem like an unattainable standard, but for me, I knew that I was physically fit enough to tackle the workouts and try my best to reach that RX standard.   With regards to my pregnancy, 17.1 last week was a breeze.  I can still box jump and burpee so I was able to chug through the workout and complete the workout under the time cap, which was my goal.  I felt good about the workout and my performance and knew that I had given it my all.   But oh 17.2.   When 17.2 was announced, I immediately started having an internal moral dilemma.  There are two gymnastics movements in 17.2 that are questionable and up for debate as to whether I should complete them […]
