On to New Adventures

Now that the Crossfit Games are done and dusted I can see my fellow women competitors getting back into the daily training grind; and I am right there with them. Watching the Crossfit Games not only inspired me, but scared me straight about the way I recover from those not-so-fun workouts. I have experimented with a lot of recovery methods; ice baths, saunas, massage, and active recovery-all of which help in some form, but the best way I have found I recover is...  sleep! I would be interested to hear how other people feel about this topic (feel free to comment) 

I ended up qualifying for the Granite Games sneaking into 26th overall position. I will be leaving Australia in 1 week to visit my family and hopefully welcome home my new born niece Remmington-the first baby of the family!! Very excited to spend sometime in Colorado with my family, its been 8 months since I’ve seen them and it feels like 3 years but I think it will put me in the right head space to compete a week later in Minnesota. The Granite Games kicks off one of the many competitions that I will be competing in, I have found that although I have been competing for most of my life, I am not as experienced as I thought I was. I intend to approach this competition with an open mind as there are some pretty big names competing there Sam Briggs, Annie Thorisdottir and Camille LeBlanc to name a few, so when I am finished staring in awe at these amazing women, Ill be throwing down with some of the best names in crossfit. I think every athlete questions their ability at some point in their career and lately mine has been tested, its an emotional roller coaster, but I get over it fairly quickly once you put a barbell in my hands. Working on my weaknesses is frustrating, and more often then not disappointing. Everyone loves to work on what they are good at, its a feel good reassurance to yourself, but when you work on things that are not, its a true test of the "how bad do you want it?” and I have that question in my mind every time I train. Persistence is key. Excited for the next couple of months, can’t wait to update you all about the Granite Games!
