After competing at One For The People in 2015 and placing 11th, it was time to see how far I’d come in two years and push for a spot on the podium. Sam and I finished in second place at the Inferno Pairs Series a couple of weeks ago so it was time to put what we had learnt in Sheffield to the test.
We did it…
Always great to represent UGD Apparel at CrossFit competitions and I’m glad that our hard work has finally paid off. My written blog of this event is to follow. I can’t wait to reflect upon this one. What a great day and great competition.
After Strength in Depth in November, I couldn’t wait another year to get involved with Inferno Racing’s portfolio of fitness competitions. Thankfully Inferno has a same-sex pairs competition, which I had only heard good things about. Me and Sam Turner signed up for the Sheffield fixture of the Inferno Racing Series to see if this one lived up to the hype. I’m not sure we were mentally prepared for what the weekend had in store.
This competition promised to be different to all other CrossFit competitions in the UK, and it certainly was. From the beginning, it was clear that there was going to be some running and swimming in this competition. I’m not the best at either of these, but thought this competition sounded fun and that the swim and run wouldn’t be too bad. I was wrong!
In 2016 I was gutted that I couldn’t compete at the BodyPower Games due to other commitments, so in 2017 I was determined to make sure I did. Based within the BodyPower Expo from Friday until Sunday this event was huge and looked amazing on the pictures. I had planned on going individual, but just before the qualifiers were announced Mr Craig Richey himself asked me to be part of Team Richey… Of course, I jumped at the chance.
