Well, I’m glad there’s yet another fun story to go along with my adventures in CrossFit! By now, most of you know I’m competing in the Again Faster “Beat the Team” WOD Series. I’ve had some issues with video recording over the 4 weeks of the competition so far, and this week was no exception!

One week my computer couldn’t read the camera used to film the workout. Another week my GoPro’s memory was full. Another week my camera died mid-workout. THIS week’s adventure was the best one yet.

I completed the entire workout, grabbed my phone to stop the recording and for some reason the button wouldn’t stop recording…. at all. When I went to try and shut it off, I noticed that THE ENTIRE VIDEO WAS LOST. Awesome.

So then the next day I worked it out to use Rj’s reliable camera. Doing the same workout two days in a row is usually not the best thing ever, but I had to do it in order to stay “legit” in the competition. So the Wednesday night time for the workout was 4:38. Thursday, less than 20 hours later… 4:10!

I was convinced I was going to go slower, my arms felt heavier, excuse, excuse, excuse. When I looked at the clock after finishing the workout, I was really happy. Boom.
