2009 Crossfit Games Mid Atlantic Regional Qualifiers Final Workout

21 - 15 - 9

95lb Squat Snatch
Chest to Bar Pullups


This smoked me.  What a great WOD!  I was pleased to do these as squat snatches and not as power snatches and then an OHS.  Didn't fail on any.  Snatches broken 10/more or less singles, singles, singles  Pullups were broken 7/7/7, 5/5/5, 9  Splits: 5'08/10'30/13'03

So I was happy with my time and would have come in 62nd place out of 120 competitors at the Mid Atlantic Qualifiers on that WOD.  My cousin competed there and came in 53rd overall.  Good job Waingro!  Makes me think about making it a commitment to compete in next year's qualifiers with two goals:  1) finish all wods with no DNQ's   2) finish in the top 3/4  ...  I think those are fairly reasonable and achievable.  I'd be thrilled with both and it might be a great motivator.  I'll have to do some more thinking on it.  It is tough to know how much more I can improve in the next year.  Barring any real injury and if I stay consistent, it may be doable to be able to compete.  I know I have no hope of any kind of winning performance, but to compete would be a real kick in the shorts!
