Where do I even start to explain yesterday? It was incredible and there’s so much to be said. I’ll be writing more in-depth about the comp but I thought I needed to get something up anyway.
The day went by at the blink of an eye, as comps tend to do I’ve noticed by now. My sore body is what is reminding constantly of that yesterday actually happened. Especially my quads!
When you’re in a comp you feel like you’re noticing everything. I think it’s the time in my life when I feel like I’m the most present in the moment. Once that timer goes off it’s only you and the workout ahead and of course in this case your partner. All those nerves playing up and the thoughts in your head go quiet. It’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. I felt a lot calmer going into this comp than my previous two. I think it made a difference. Probably because I had Mich next to me and also having some experience of how it all works from before.
Now looking back, whilst I did feel so present. The day is already a blur and a jumble of experiences and emotions. That’s why I love having this space to write it down and reflect on what actually happened. It’s also great to look back on in the future.
I’m so grateful to have been able to share it this day with my incredible Crossfit fam. What a crew we were, competing and cheering each other on until the end. I still can’t believe how lucky I am to have this crew here Australia who I get to see every day and do what I love with. Life would’ve been so different if I hadn’t have started Crossfit back in Glasgow that’s for sure. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I don’t know how I would’ve found friends over here if it wasn’t for it. It’s tough as an adult to find like-minded people if you don’t go to uni and just work.
Anyway, enough blabbering for now. There’s more to come! I can’t wait to share it all with you,
