Chrissy Pitts Wrap-Up of Masters Competition at CrossFit Active in Sydney

Date: 1 May 2011; Location: Waverly Sydney; Box: CrossFit Active
Reason: Bunch of fossils at “Active at any age” Masters Comp.
Mission: Have some fun, meet some other masters and compare! Also represent CrossFit 2600 and did I mention have some fun?

Fossils: Chris “Chrissie” Pitt – Masters women 50+ and Andrew “Sykesy” Sykes - Masters men 40-49

Welcomed by Luke, Adam and Chad CrossFit Active Owners – and there are the WODs. I got one of the WoDs right – the old deadlift, hang power clean, press combo (10min AMRAP). Last time I did this I used 20kg but with 35kg this might hurt. Hmmm next one looks interesting 2min AMRAP KB of own weight choice, 10 burpee/10kg plate 200m carry by 3 then another 2 mins KB AMRAP same weight. Third doesn’t look too bad – 7 min AMRAP 7 box jumps/7 thrusters 30kg. Have strategy for first WOD, second looks OK (SORT OF NOT REALLY) and third need to think about. Take deep breath and prioritise – coffee!!!!

Time has come to start the comp – 2 x 40-49 heats, 1 women 50+ and 1 men 50+. Good, we get to watch for tactics. Look to be spread out well so recovery should be possible. Before I know it I’m chalking the hands and trying to recall how to do this one. Use the last dead as possie for first hang p’clean likewise to press. Well that works for the first 7 minutes now I’m starting to feel the weight – break it up 8 dead, rest, dead, hang clean wow has the clock gone into slow-motion? Seems like only a short while and we’re into the next WOD. I’ve tried for strategy – look for reps at reasonable weight. Hello burpees my old friend and I hate plate runs (note to self yet another thing to get on top of) – thanks to coaching during this one - and back to kettlebell. Wow my forearms are busted! Physio on sight had knots worked on and trendy magic blue tape. Andy meanwhile has done really well and is pacing himself nicely!

Bit of a break now with “spectator wod” – 60 clean and jerk team event for time. Some very very strong men here – Chad and Luke from CrossFit Active use 70kg and make it look dead easy in short time. Before you know it, it’s our WOD 3! Andy goes first – noting that the boys used the girls height box! And suddenly it’s me again. How long can 7 minutes go? The answer – a really, really long time. I decided to use the Sniper attack and squat clean for the first thruster – hell I’ve done 20kg before what’s another 10kg! Somewhat surprised this worked – still need to work on mental state for the press on the rest – hold bar to chest until last possible (practise Chrissie). I ran out of steam at about 6 mins – step ups instead of jumps and dreading having to pick the bar up again but I did and squeezed another 6-7 reps in. Every rep counts J

Slight scoring mix-up and my decision to RX means I get a place! Andy comes second and I come second (but really third). My first ever in my entire 51 years of life sporting award for a competition. Who says age is a barrier?

So reflections, 3 WODS in less than 5 hours was pretty demanding and I need to get the energy sources sorted out. There were lots of hugs, new friends made and the agreement that this was a great event before heading homewards and a Radox bath. And I did it without scaling !!!!!! – maybe a bit slow but I did each WOD prescribed and I am so rapt with that. Now to get some movement back into the traps - where’s that hockey ball... when’s the next comp?

Cheers Chris
