2011 CrossFit Games: Week 1 Extension

Well, for all of you who were rushing to fit in the Week 1’s workout, relax. You now have another week to get it done! Apparently, due to the website issues with trying to get people registered, CFHQ is giving everyone one more week to get themselves squared away.

If you already did the workout, will you try it again to better your score? Let me know.

Here’s the direct post from the Games Website:

“You now have an extra week to register and nail the Week 1 workout. All the rules are the same, but we are now allowing you until Sunday, March 27 at 17:00 PDT, a full extra week, to perform your workout and submit your results. As always, you are welcome to repeat the workout any time before the deadline if you think you can do better. The Week 2 workout will be announced on Tuesday, March 29 at 17:00 PDT, with the submission deadline Sunday, April 3 at 17:00 PDT (again, this is Week 2).

There are over 20,000 athletes registered to compete in the CrossFit Games Open. That is a historic number, both for the CrossFit community, and for online athletic competition in general. We want to be 100% sure that everyone gets to compete with fair terms. There have been too many problems with registering, the leaderboard, team creation, and account management. Our IT and support teams are working around the clock to respond to your questions and fix these bugs. They have made significant progress, but not enough.

This new deadline will give everyone enough time to make sure that they are registered to the site, assigned to the right team, and correctly submitting their performances. We hope that you take advantage of this time to participate fully in the Open.”

    I’m doing it again – what do you have to lose – heck we’ve got a whole additional week until they release the next workout, what else would I do between now and then?!

    • I suppose I don’t have anything to lose… It’s just hard to intentionally put yourself through pain you already know! I’m not sure I could have gone much harder… but there’s only one way to find out, huh?
