11.1 14.1 is in the books. For many this was a chance to test yourself against yourself and see how you stacked up three years later. At a quick glance it appears we must be doing something right, as there was all kinds of improvement.
CFPEI top three male scores:
- Bish – 308 reps
- Mike C – 307 reps
- Mike I – 305 reps
CFPEI top three female scores:
- Kelly G – 279 reps
- Leanne – 260
- Cheryl – 259
Some observations if I may.
If my count is correct we had 13 people perform this WOD for the very first time. Congrats to all of you for putting yourself out there and playing the game. I don’t know what your personal expectations were but don’t be to hard on yourself if you fell a little short. This one looks a lot easier on paper. In 2011 I was sure I could do 10 rounds when this WOD came out (we didn’t have fancy release shows with the pros showing us how to back then). Three years later I’m still trying to figure out how to finish the 7th.
I’m sure there were lots of great personal achievements during this weekend and I’d love to mention all of them but I’m only going to reference some of the ones that stood out to me.
Bish – Top score in the gym on an injured ankle and 41 reps better than 2011. First week and the WOD has repetitive jumping in it. Not optimal for a bad ankle (especially on such a HEAVVVVVVVYYY person).
Cheryl – Injured knee, hasn’t been training at full capacity for a while, and betters her 2011 score by 39 reps.
DW – Now oddly enough Dave actually had a small decrease this time around. Why is this signigicant? He has a torn ACL. An impressive feat in my opinion.
Steph C – Did the workout with Tonsillitis and had significant trouble breathing from the start of the clock. I know she was upset with her score but but it was still well done all things considered.
Kelly G & Anne I – Stood out to me as having the two biggest turnarounds. Anne added 108 reps from 2011 and Kelly upped her score by 164 reps.
There has been such significant growth in our sport in just 3 years. In 2011 our best male score was 301 reps which was 109th in Canada East and 2331st in the World. Three years later that same score would be 739th in Canada East and 16,484th in the World.
Top female then was also 301 reps, which was 30th/448th. Now it would be 294th/5071st respectively.
As a team back then we scored 1649 reps and ranked 21st in Canada East. This year we added 69 reps for a total of 1718 reps but have fallen to 116th place.
Average age of our top three males – 40.3 years. (yes, I’m calling out our 20 somethings for 14.2)
Our very own Megan MacLellan (who is unfortunately in the North Central Region) scored 391 reps putting her in 9th in her region and 119th in the World. That’s only 1 rep less than Julie Foucher!
Great job everyone, enjoy 14.2. If I had to guess I’d say get ready for some box jumps (sorry injured folk).
