Garage Games Recap
On August 25 & 26th I decided to enter my 1st Crossfit Competition. 2 intense days of high metabolic WODS!!! The biggest challenge of the event was not knowing what to except among-st other things such as…
- Did i pack enough food? Did I pack the right food- protein, fat, carbs?
- Did I drink enough fluids?
- Can I zone everyone out and preform?
Day 1 went great, I ended up eating enough foods and timed it perfectly so I wouldn’t be full during my WODS. I packed foods such as sweet potatoes, apples, almond butter, protein shakes, yogurt and wild albacore in a can. Once we got up to WOD 3 between all the cheering and workouts I was totally drained. And luckily someone from our gym went for a coffee run and I got back my energy for the last WOD.

It def was a great event with great competitors from cf boxs all over Long Island. To see how far I have come and realize that I still have a lot of work to do on my form. Even thou these WODS targeted my weakness I still manage to give it my best and came in 10th place!
Well see what’s next for me! As of right now I will be concentrating on the NYC Marathon.
