Hail to the Queen 2013

Another Hail to the Queen Competition is done.  The CrossFit Metropolis ladies had a great day - taking 4th in the Rx'd division and winning the scaled division for the third year in a row.  (Congrats to EJ & Paige!)  We had 12 women compete and a whole slew of people from the box came out to support us.

I got off to a slow start, but I picked it up for the second two WODs and feel pretty good about my performance. 

I learned that I have a habit that I never knew about: I stop and reset between each thruster.  I'm told it's not a pause - but a full stop.  I had no idea that I did that.  Anyway, it's ridiculous and inefficient and something I'm going to have to work on.  

I have lots of thoughts to share, but my forearms (among other things) are shot, so that's going to have to wait.
