Hi lovelies! I’ve completely forgotten to give you an SFFC update. SFFC is a Crossfit competition down in Ayr. This competition is for a team of three and I was super happy when Faye and Lauren asked me to be the third person on their team. When we first signed up our team Peanut Butter Jelly Legs we had about a month to do the three WODS and of course we left it for the last week to do all of them haha.
Time just ran away and then we were on the final week and the score had to be submitted on the Saturday. So we pretty much lived in G5 trying to complete these workouts. We had a great time together but some of the workouts were tough. The added pressure of doing some of the movements synchronised with the other team mates added an interesting touch to say the least!
On the Thursday we did what we thought was the final contribution to this competition. We had completed WOD 3 but when we finished we were left the feeling that we could’ve executed it better. We had done a couple of mess ups which could’ve been avoided and wasted time. We had planned going for dinner to celebrate us completing the qualifiers and everything but by the time we reached CCA where we were eating, we had already decided to redo the final WOD the next day.
So on the Friday we came in before the Friday evening class to do the workout again. Faye’s mum was so nice to come in and help count. We managed to do the entire workout about 35 seconds quicker which felt loads better.
Last weekend we were waiting to hear whether we went through to the final or not but unfortunately for us, it was not our time. Despite that we didn’t go through, I’m still so happy we tried and there are always new competitions coming up so I just have to keep on trying! I like how I have something to work towards and whether I go through to a final or not it doesn’t really matter. One day this hard work might result in me qualifying. For now I’m enjoying the journey.
