Hehe, already managed to make my certificate a bit dirty… Smooth Maddie, smooth…
Look what came in the mail the other day! This is incredibly surreal seeing my name on such a pretty and shiny piece of paper together with the title “Crossfit Level 1 Trainer”! It’s paper official now guys! Another incredibly surreal thing is that my name is in the trainer directory on the Crossfit website. So if you search for my name I come up. Crazy! Something I never thought would happen.
Now I just need to figure out my next steps and what I want to do now. Decisions decisions! I have a rough idea but have no idea if it will actually happen. I’ve got quite a big change coming up soon which is why I haven’t really actively thought of what the next step in terms of coaching and such. Sorry that yet again it’s all a bit up in the air and that I’m not telling you exactly what’s going on but once everything is confirmed I’ll let you know! It’s super exciting and very scary but a change is needed and I feel as ready as I can be. Terrified one second and super excited the next. I guess that’s what happens when you’re making one of your dreams happen! After years of wishing.
Speaking of Crossfit! 18.5 was announced and this time around there was an online vote, the Crossfit community got to decide for the second time ever what the workout would be. The first time it happened was in the actual Crossfit Games a couple of years ago. So I think this is the first time for that to ever happen in the Open, which is quite cool.
This morning I sat and watched the workout announcement, did you guys vote for the workout? I voted for the first option just because I thought at least I can get something done (hopefully). I’ll explain more about the workouts in my last Open post next week. I then watched the incredibly badass Annie, Katrin and Sara do the workout. I absolutely love those three women. They are so inspiring and see the three of them competing head to head like that in Iceland was pretty incredible! If I even become a fraction as good as them I’ll be incredibly happy. Man was it close with the girls only finishing with a couple of point between each other. One break too long and you could have lost the win in this case.
I’m excited to try out this final Crossfit Open workout for myself this evening! Chest to bar for me will be tough but I’ll go in and do my best as I’ve done with all the other workouts. It’ll be a fun time with all of us getting our submissions done and then heading out for some food to celebrate us all surviving the Open. Afterwards Faye and I will hopefully watch the latest Crossfit Games documentary. I cannot tell you how excited I am to watch it. We’ve been waiting for this for months and it’s finally time to see it. It looks absolutely insanely good. Even if you don’t do Crossfit you should watch it because the competitors at that level are like super humans and you get so inspired by them. My sister and her boyfriend have watched the documentary on Netflix and absolutely loved it.
