Today I logged the last workouts for Row’d Royalty 2016 after also doing a 2K race over the weekend. I’m glad the indoor rowing competitions are over for me for 2016 and I can concentrate on core training and CrossFit for the next 45 days or so. Looks like I finished 14th out of 139 entries in the Masters 40-49 “tall” category, which is 4 spots higher than in 2015.
I found the format to be tougher this year in terms of how to fit it into regular programming at CrossFit Ignite, and the competition to be stiffer. I also found the web experience to be significantly worse than last year, to the point where I was unable to upload pictures for some of the workouts while I was traveling – the website interface to submit scores and pictures was really slow and cumbersome. It’s a good competition, but I hope next year they improve the website, and they extend the WOD window so that east coast boxes can program it more easily and generate more participants.
