I signed up for The CrossFit Games Open with zero expectations. I just wanted to track my progress. And knowing competitions always make me better, I knew The Open would give me another reason to push myself.
With three WODs down and two to go, I have to say, I’m surprising myself. That being said, I’m not celebrating just yet. I can feel toes to bar or wall ball shots coming. But for now, I’ll enjoy my ranking…
In related news, the 8 CrossFit boxes in our area are hosting a competition on April 26th based on The Open rankings. It’s the first ever Southeast Texas (SETX) Invitational and Open Championship and it goes down at Ford Park in Beaumont, Texas.
For the “invitational” portion of the competition, the top 2 male and female competitors from each hosting CrossFit affiliate will receive a special invite to compete, and the remaining 28 spots will be filled by the highest ranking males and females after week 5 of the CrossFit Open competition.
Those wishing to compete in the “open” portion are welcome to register after the 2014 CrossFit Games Open is completed on March 27th. There will be Standard, Masters and Team divisions available for both males and females.
