Savannah GA, Columbus Day Weekend 11

So about 75 of my closest friends took a train from DC to Savannah.  They gave us the whole car and a party ensued.  A good time was had by all I even slept in the overhead compartment.  We got to Savannah, we couldn't check into our hotel, about 40 of us all ended in the same spot for breakfast, I ate two breakfast's, napped in the hotel lobby, skipped the evening run and went to a new box!

(10/5) I was in aw of the work being done when I walked in the open garage door of CF Hyperformance (180).  Loud music and weights dropping always gets me pumped for a good WOD.  I met the owner, Drew, did my usual pre-ops, and began to stretch.  It was only me to the time being, so I got in a good Oly warm up and got to work on my Split Jerk practice.  5 @ 135#, 4 @ 155, 3 @ 185, 2 @ 205, 1 @ 225, 1 @ 245, & 1 @ 260(PR).  Two other athletes showed up and worked in a little and then we all did the WOD together: 3rds: 6 G2OH @ 165, 18 Ring Dips, & 25 Box Jumps @ 30"
We all finished pretty close together, 10:30 to 11:30 which was pretty solid work.  Great job everyone.

I actually liked this box so much that I came back the next day to a do a Team WOD.  Unfortunately I was the odd man out and had to cut it in half and do it by myself, which was cool by me.  This one rough: 400m 20# Ball Carry, 40 Wall Balls, 200m Bear Crawl, 1 Rope Climb, 25 Wall Ball Sit Ups, 25 Wall Balls, & a 400m Med Ball Toss (17:04).
This was fun, partners had a few more rules but all in all it was a blast and a WOD I needed before this weekend would be over.

(10/7)  I had a crazy Trash trail planned but I figured i could get a WOD in before hand.  I convinced my hung over friends, Princess and Burning, to hit the road with me and head over to CF SAV (181) for a lil fun.  We were a few minutes late so we stretched on our own and tried to follow along as the demo'd the WOD. 
We were given an 11 min ladder of 1 KB Swing, 1 20" Box Jump, & 1 Sit Up.  2-2-2, 3-3-3, etc Burning and I were a little confused thinking it was a "Death By", so we rested for a few seconds and then quickly realized we were wrong!  We quickly caught back up and even overtook most of the class.  I finished mine just into my 13th round.  Burning hit 10 and Princess was just passed 9.  It's always funny for a girl to give a guy a little shit for not keeping it up. 
We didn't have much time to stay and chat like usual but I'm so glad we made it in.  Coach Camilla was totally cool and super welcoming. 
Both of these boxes in Savannah we nothing less than amazing and I'm glad I made them both. 

Well that wraps up my Savannah least the CF portions.  Between the random IAH Trails, awesome friends, and a bit of debauchery a ton of fun was had by all! I even got a new CF NewBoot, Robin B, out of this one.  Till next time!
