Good way to finish off the winter…training is paying off.
CrossFit Games Open 15.3 (scaled): 781 reps
C2 Peak Power test PR: 963 watts
Ready to get back on the water! Come on Spring!
Spring I in the air…60 degrees today! I’d give it maybe 5 more days. Could I be lucky enough to see clear water for St. Patrick’s Day?
Last weekend I participated in the Ironmen Erg Classic, hosted by Don Bosco Prep rowing. I don’t usually do indoor rowing races, but this one encouraged participation by CrossFit boxes so I figured I’d jump in and support it. It turned out to be a great race – well organized, 100% on-time (a rarity in rowing), and with enough participants to get it into the Top 10 indoor rowing events in the US this year. Well done Bosco!
They ran all of the mens masters categories together, which was fun. I didn’t have a great time as I was still tired from the Row’d Royalty competition, but I managed to come in first in the 40-49 age group and 2nd overall. It was a good checkpoint for my personal training, and a fun time seeing a lot of faces I know from the NJ/NY rowing and CrossFit communities. I especially like the timing at the end of January – far enough ahead of CRASH-Bs but far enough out of the holiday season. I’ll definitely be back next year and would encourage any CrossFitters in the NY/NJ area to give it a try.
Currently sitting at 16th out of 187 in the Masters division at http://www.rowdroyalty.com … Let’s see if this takes it up a notch for CrossFit Ignite!
Join me at the Ironmen Erg Classic on Jan. 31 if you are in the NY/NJ/CT area, USA. Today us the registration deadline.
I’d encourage everyone in the NY/NJ/CT area to consider participating in the Ironmen Erg Classic indoor rowing competition on January 31 at Don Bosco prep in Ramsey, NJ. This is a 2K race, with categories for all ages and skill levels, and is a good mid-winter checkpoint for anyone planning on going to CRASH-Bs at the end of February. I don’t usually do erg competitions, but this one is run by Don Bosco, whose facility I row out of, and they are encouraging CrossFit boxes to send teams, so CrossFit Ignite will be there!.
Join me in the Row’d Royalty challenge starting January 7. This is a CrossFit Open – style online rowing competition run by Diablo CrossFit, with prizes for the top finishers. Register at http://rowdroyalty.com
