Affiliate Adventures 4 – Casco Bay

I’m up in Maine again for the weekend and today was Casco Bays 1 year annieversary so they had a full day of workouts and food and demos etc. It was really cool.

When I got there with Sara they had people going in heats through the WOD which was a pretty cool one. They also had scaled WODs running fot those new to xfit which was good to give people a little taste.

After a quick warm up I hit the WOD which was as follows

WOD
400m sandbag carry with 75lbs
20 pullups
15 box jumps @ 24 inches
10 reps of 1 tireflip – 250lbs tire, 3 burpee box jumps onto the tire = 1 rep
15 box jumps @ 24 inches
20 pullups
400m sandbag carry with 75lbs

This was pretty brutal but an awesome WOD! I paced the first sandbag carry, blew through the first round of pullups unbroken then the box jumps but then lost a lot of time on the tireflips. I think it may have worked a little better if it was just 10 tire flips or burpees as it got hard to keep track of numbers etc but thats all part of it I guess. The second set of box jumps were tough because I was gassed and the last set of pullups went 10, 6 , 2 , 2 I think. I was spent by the time I had to pick up the sandbag again and really struggled on the last carry.

I finished in 12:13 which wasn’t too bad. I think the fastest of the day was 11:01.

It was a really cool day filled with good people just eating good food and getting some good work in as well.
There really is an awesome community of crossfitters up here and I’m happy I got to meet a lot of them.

However last night after everything was done my ankle got really swollen and painful to put weight on it. I don’t know whats up with it. It could be a delayed reaction to a number of things but all just guesses. At the end of the day I don’t think it’ll ever be right and I just have to be careful on it all the time.
