That First Competition πŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Boy oh boy was that a weekend!!

So we just had the only yearly local CrossFit competition – The Rock Throwdown – and it was an absolute blast! It was one tough and long weekend but I would do it again in a heartbeat!! I must say a heartfelt thank you to first and foremost my amazing team partner, also all the CrossFit Martell members and Vitaly for their support as well as CrossFit 356 for organizing this amazing event‼️

So why I’m writing this post – this was my first ever competition and I wanted to share my experience – so I was super nervous to register and thought I would never be good enough and stressed a million times about how on earth we were going to manage – but you know what?! That was the exact feeling that pushed both my partner and I to our limits and to really train our hardest till D day πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻

Then when D day arrived there were the expected butterflies, the Tummy aches, the jelly legs, the lack of appetite, etc. but once the first event began that was all gone and all that was left was excitement to make the most of this weekend and really have a good time ❣️πŸ’ͺ🏻 we had some ups and downs – some disappointments and some great achievements – which is of course to be expected with the amount of output that is expected of you in these competitions… so all in all it was a super awesome experience and I could not be prouder of our performance and if any of you are considering if you should or shouldn’t do any kind of competition my advice is just go for it – I promise you will never regret itβ€ΌοΈβ˜ΊοΈ
