Hi my dears! How amazing are these images from the event? It’s quite strange seeing yourself workout from an outside perspective. I barely even noticed there was someone taking photos. I get quite zoned out during WODs. It brings out my competitive side! I think that’s why this workout form suits me so well, I’m stubborn, slightly competitive and always want to improve.
One thing I’ve noticed going through these photos is, I’ve got a serious game face going on. I’ve been told this before, that I look serious when I workout. I now see why 😉
So as I mentioned after signing in for the WOD and checking out the new Reebok area, we jogged down to Crossfit Glasgow. I didn’t realise how close it was to town. Just across the river like G5 and they’re not far away from each other. Once we got there we all got to borrow a pair of Nanos to try out for the WOD. I was really looking forward to giving them a test run because I’d never tried them on before. The Nanos are are specifically made for Crossfit.
Gavin one of the box owners and team from Crossfit Glasgow first talked us through the workout and warmed us up. We were a great mix of Crossfitters to people who had never tried Crossfit before so they ran through all the exercises before it was time to get the WOD started. Some of the guys from Gym G5 were there too, which was really fun.
The workout was a version of Fight Gone Bad, you have a minute to complete as many reps as possible at different five stations (ab mat sit ups, box jumps, kettlebell swings, wall balls and burpees). At the end of the round we got a minutes rest and we repeated it three times.
It got quite sweaty to say the least! Towards the end there was a lot of taps aff going on 😛 It’s really important to not let your score drop and preferably improve it. I was really happy with my score, even though I let it drop in the second round I redeemed myself in the final third round.
I was so focused on the WOD I didn’t pay too much attention to my Nanos but considering they were new shoes and I barely noticed them, I think that’s good review. I mentioned a bit more of what I thought in my other post (here). My feet always get sore from new shoes and didn’t during the WOD. I’ll definitely consider them when looking for a new pair of training shoes next time.
It was so much fun connecting with people from all over Glasgow. We had a great time. Thank you Reebok UK, Greaves Sports and Crossfit Glasgow for a great event once again, I had a blast.
