04-28-09 Tuesday Week 13

Shana A. finishes the Rope Climb wod at the CrossFit Games Dirty South Qualifying from Shana Alverson

Saturday April 25th Day 1
3:00 Max Point Suicide
2:00 Rest
3:00 Max Deadlift

Suicides went well. Deadlift was fair. I was in 8th place after this wod with Laura Demarco in 1st and Jenni Orr in 9th right behind me!

As Many Rounds As Possible in 8:00 of:
5 Clean & Jerk 95 lbs
10 Chest to Bar Pullups

Got 5 rounds plus 5 C&Js. Tied for first with Jenni. Got some bloody knuckles from the Oly bar bouncing off the rubber track.

5 Rounds for time:
20 Double Unders
10 Wall Ball Shots 14# to 10 ft target
15 ft Rope Climb

This is the wod I was most looking forward to. I might have been able to do it even faster had it not been the THIRD one that day! It's amazing how much energy double-unders take when you are completely exhausted! I was actually glad to get to the rope each time because it meant I was DONE with that set of Wall Ball shots. Managed to keep my hands in tact up to this point so there wasn't an issue with that at all.

Excellent performance on all your WOD's Shana! Enjoy your rest girl!! Looking forward to watching your continued journey to the Games. I'm going to cheer all my SEQ girls on in Cali no matter if I get selected as a volunteer or not! All your hard work is paying off... keep it up!

Wow, great job Shana! I get so nervous watching all these videos of the qualifiers, and reading all about the workouts. You must be glad the qualifiers are over. Of course, now you get to think about the big-time games!!! Woot woot!

That was fn solid, Shana. You looked completely self-possessed working your way through that WOD at a good pace, even at the end of grueling day. You're gonna rock Aromas too.

Rest up and let us know whether you're relieved or even more nervous now. ;-)
