2014 Legends Comp Results, Monday, 6-16-2014

2014 LEGENDS RESULTS – www.LegendsComp.com 
 
Surprisingly, I had several requests for this WOD to be programmed this week.  You all are SICK!  =)  Here you go:
Workout of the Day:
Legends 2014 Event #3 – “Hodgepodge 21”
TWO Rounds For Time:
21 Burpee Box Jumps
21 Toes To Bar
21 Double Unders
30m Belly Stone Carry 115/70
21 KB Snatch Right Arm 55/35
21 KB Snatch Left Arm
21 Sandbag Back Squats 80/48
65m Shoulder Stone Carry 115/70
 
– Strict 24min time cap
– We will re-create this as best as we can (indoor and outdoor positions) but we cannot do the full 65m Shoulder Stone Carry.  Instead we will carry it back through the front door (about 50m).
Oh and if you competed this weekend: Mobility, rest, and some O-lifting if you’re feeling good
 
Quick Note about this event – I wanted to program something longer-than-your-typical Competition WOD (as most are sub 7-8 minutes) with the “Hodgepodge 21’s.  I also wanted to do it without blasting athletes with 200+ reps as most longer WODs will do AND by testing multiple modalities.  The goal was NOT to just blow up the athletes and tear their hands apart and send people to their knees at times.  I knew the other programmed WODs were slam dunks and would go off well.  However, this one made me a little nervous because 1) we had never programmed something this long and 2) how athletes would respond to it after 2-3 events prior.  Coach Foust did two run throughs months prior to the comp so we could dial it in.  On Saturday, I became more and more excited about this event for competition because each heat had 2-3 or MORE lead changes throughout its entirety.  In fact I think the top Men’s heat had at least 5 lead changes until Moffitt blew everyone out of the water during Rnd 2 of KB Snatches.  I think this made it exciting for the crowd as well.
 
Here was a little something I posted on Facebook in reflection from this weekend.  More to come during upcoming posts this week for our volunteers and athletes =)
 
What I learned from this years Legends Comp:
I always re-live an event and think about how hard the athletes pushed themselves or how tirelessly our volunteers worked or how we can continue to make this event better each year. All are very true and I am humbled by all of you who give up your free time for event duties or to compete or to coach or to cheer. Moreover this year I learned about true friendship and how it manifests through CrossFit -when one person does something simple but yet so meaningful for another. Maybe it was to help their friend feel a little more comfortable in their first comp since a life-changing injury, but I think he just really wanted to hang out with his buddy and share a few laughs and some solid competition (and Kev you know you’ll never hear the end of that 1m you lost to on the Ski Erg!!!). I found myself biting my lip and fighting back watery eyes as they both rolled out for Event #1 Friday night. And I know that had the injuries or roles been reversed that Kevin would have been right next toNathan competing as an able bodied athlete in a wheeler as well. It was an honor to provide the framework for the event to witness this. Won’t ever forget this experience and thank you Nate and Kev for making everyone a little better competitor, CrossFitter, friend and person over the weekend. Thank you to every single volunteer, to all athletes, coaches and spectators who were a part of #AlpineLegends this year – truly appreciate you all!!
