Before I post more of the competitors for this weekend, I just want to wish Ruth all the best. She did a bit of damage to her ankle on the weekend and I know being out of action will be killing her. Hang in Ruth and it wont be long before you are back kicking everyone's backside on the runs...
Jane 'Where's my hoodie' HAAGMAN
Baseline - 5:07
AMRAP - 12 rounds
Fran - 5:24
Helen - 13:04
Caveman - 21:04
The third element of the three musketeer's. Talk about hooked, she not only has all the Crossfit kit, but has kitted out her kids as well. One to watch, she is in the quiet achiever group with Sheree.
STRENGTHS - Consistent in most activities and is constantly improving in times and reps for all WODS.
WEAKNESSES - Not a fan of running, but unlike her two musketeer counterparts wont whinge about it as much as them!!
Charlotte 'Char' POWELL
Baseline - 4:19
AMRAP - 12 rounds
500m Row - 1:59
Fran - 4:56
Caveman - 17:30
Deadlift - 70kg
One of the younger REF members, who has also been there from the very early days of REF. Come a long way from those days and will only go forward from here. Looking forward to nailing that Beep test once and for all Char...
STRENGTHS - Shorter metcons. These WODS are where Charlotte does well and achieves excellent results.
WEAKNESSES - CHIPPER's.... These longer WODS are tough on her, but to her credit she toughs it out and completes them.
Sheree 'BP' PERKOVICH
Baseline - 6:31
AMRAP - 18 rounds
Caveman - 18:14
10m of Death - 15
Deadlift - 55kg
The quiet achiever, who from those early days has made excellent progression. Still a lot more to come from this one. Looking forward to that journey.
STRENGTHS - As previously mentioned, Sheree is a BP and definitely one to watch on Comp day. The WODS will suit her strengths and with the right intensity she will do well.
WEAKNESSES - "Box Jumps," not the only one, but she has done well to overcome her phobia of getting up on the dreaded REF boxes...
Aidan 'The Silent Assassin ' FOSTER
Baseline - 4:38
AMRAP - 16 rounds
10 x 10 - 33:30
10m of Death - 17
Helen - 10:59
Cindy - 12
A Primal Throwdown participant, who performed well for his first competition. Consistent across the board and always has a red hot crack!! Looking forward to your participation at the Crossfit Games next year brother...
STRENGTHS - From the Throwdown his consistency in different exercises was evident. At that stage now where he RXD's most activities and with a little more work on strength will do well in 2011 Crossfit Games.
WEAKNESSES - Frustration!!!!! - at himself on occasion. Only when he is not achieveing his best.
