CFE Recovery WOD

Yesterday was the CFNE Masters event.  We had some Craicer's in the mix and it was nice to see Rob Potash do well and place 3rd.  I knew he would enjoy crossfit and it is great to see him have success in his first competition. 

Surprisingly I don't feel too bad about not being in the event.  I originally had not signed up because I didn't think I would be ready due to the problems with wrist and foot, but wrist is now 100% (knock on wood) and foot is not holding my training back too much.   In fact my fitness is coming around and I feel pretty good about where I am right now.  The events seemed pretty cool but I think they rewarded an athlete who had a huge engine as nothing was particularly heavy.   I did all the events just to try them out but I would never use that to compare how I would have done.   I didn't do the event so I was DNS (did not start).   The one they called "Triple Take" was super important as they scored each segment separately.   You really had to pace it well. When I tried it I totally blew up and had nothing left for the next two movements.   My bench sucks so I would have gotten crushed in that and the obstacle course would have been tricky with my foot.  I have this fear it will rip again so I am a little gun shy.  Kudos to John Dunlap, Kevin Unger, Frozen John and Richard Johnson for their performances.   Especially Richard Johnson who tells me he hasn't been training at all.  I wish I could be that good without training.

Put a pretty hard double in yesterday so my plan was to just go in and keep moving. 

30min NOT for time or reps:
500m Row /400m Run alternate
10 KB Swings @70
10 Pull Ups
10 Sit Ups
10 Push Ups
10 Hip Extensions

Just in case I do it again I got in 5 rounds.  I had to catch my breath after the swing and I was feeling the last couple days of muscle-ups as my pullups werent what I would call easy.

I want to clarify a comment I made yesterday - In no way shape or form was I criticizing Jarrod's programming for advanced class I was just sharing my complete disdain for anything to do with the OPENs.  At this point I am NOT planning on doing the 2014 wods unless they are part of regular Craic programmed.
