So if we want to compare out times from the final XFIT games WOD do we look at "The End 3" on the cross fit games scoreboard...I'm having trouble can't figure it out ha

Aimee Lyons said...

Nina- It's kind of impossible to compare apples to apples when looking at the games WOD's vs times from doing them in a box...for a few reasons.
1-The fact they completed 9 previous WOD's before "the End 3"
2-Indoors vs Outdoors under the sun.
3- "The End 1" was an AMRAP in 3 of the last WOD, "The End 2" was an AMRAP in 6 of the last WOD, "The End 3" was the complete WOD. These were completed with minimal rest between, I believe it was a minute or two.
4- And we didn't program the sled Push at the end...

kinda a long answer but hope it helps...

Jason and Sam G and Tom S. tried to recreate the 2009 games WOD's and they can tell you it's just not the same :)

great work on heavy squats. This was Brad's first class after Fund's, Ditty is back from a wedding hiatus, and you all decided to have 6 people in each class, exactly enough for each to have a working rower. ALL GREAT THINGS!

Congrats to TP, LP, and KC on stellar performances at the tri.

Happy birthday Jen! You have made leaps and bounds of improvement since you first started and your determination and true grit sets you apart. Have a great day!

Thanks for the bday wishes! Have a lot going on so haven't been able to make it to the box, but I miss everyone. Was really looking forward to the K&Q of prussia competition, but will be unable to make it. I know its gonna be awesome and good luck to everyone.

Laura Pappas said...

Happy Birthday J-Na! Hope it was a good one.

Thanks for all the congrats from the Tri too, tris are like the crossfit wod its hard to compare year to year because the conditions are always changing...and for things like age group placing it all depends on who shows up that day! My time wasn't a PR for me even in the Brig race but was still good enough to win the age group which is really awseome!
