Positive Day 29 The Highland Games.. Picture heavy beware
Sunday, October 20, 2013
Did I mention I wanted to compete in The Highland Games??? HA! Of course I have!! Tossing the stone, Sheathe toss, weight for distance and turning the Caber!! I have practiced quite a bit!!!
Not your conventional training!!
The day before the games there was a rainbow after my last training session!
I bought a Kilt(a requirement)
Attended a clinic the day of the games
Posed with the babies after the clinic
After fretting over what shirt to wear...I found out we get tees to wear. Waiting for mine
Now a Clan challenege is coed but the women have to use the same weight as the men
28pd stone throw
16pd sheathe toss
56pd weight for distance
Even though I was the only woman, I had a great time! I didnt win shiz! Came in last place But I learned soooo much! Technique and training!!!
The peeps I Challenged with!
I received so many positives that I look strong and that I obviously workout I am looking forward to doing it again BUT in the womens division! They lift half the weight of men! wooo LOL
Of course a post Games selfie....Cause I feel like a warrior!
Sweet! I'm glad you had fun. My friends do a podcast about sheaf. It's mostly humorous, occasionally offensive, but they do also talk about history and training. www.fork-talk.com/ 1038 days ago
You are a beautiful bada$$ warrior! This is so awesome. Who does this crazy cool stuff? YOU DO!!! And that your girls get to see their mama competing with the boys makes me so happy. 1069 days ago
