Christmas in July @ CrossFit AMRAP

      4 Comments on Christmas in July @ CrossFit AMRAP

This is a CrossFit heavy week for me. My box is having our own in-house competition that’s called the Reindeer Games – Christmas in July. It wasn’t my plan to come everyday but apparently my inner athlete and inner competitor is coming out this week and there’s no backing down.


To make it better (or worse?) after 3 days of competition, I was sitting tied for second in my age group for the scaled division. My running might be lacking a bit this week, but we’re getting some sprints in during a few of the workouts so I’m not going entirely cold turkey. Besides, every run counts, right? 😉


So how have I kicked my butt this week? Let’s see….

I’m nervous and excited to see how today’s WOD goes and where I stand when it’s all said and done. Regardless though, I’m SO proud of how I’ve done!


How were your workouts this week?

      I didn’t finish in the leaderboard, but I have a feeling I was 4th…just wait until December for the “real” Reindeer Games – it’s ON! 😉

      LOL! They were HARD but they’re not really dangerous! They’re stick jumps, you just take a stick and put it on a box with the weight holding it in place and then jump side to side. They TOUGH but I don’t think dangerous! Plus I scaled using a smaller box! 🙂
