Ok, so I still seem to have the lung capacity of an infant today. AND, just to add a little kick while I’m down, today’s WOD was a 5km run. I LOVE to run, so part of me wanted to give it a try anyway, but the smart part of me over-ruled that idea. Of course, it still didn’t completely keep me out of the box. That’s just crazy.
“Anyone need to scale today?” Coach asked. I just nodded In disappointment. So, how exactly does one scale a 5km run? Easy. One jumps on the concept2 for a 5km row instead. My glutes were angry about this solution. :p In terms of intensity I want to say I find the row option MORE of a challenge than the run, so I was kinda excited by the switch. Started out really strong, and focused on controlling my breathing so I could survive the full distance. Around the 3.5km mark, Dave was on me to throw in some 30 second intervals of higher intensity. By the 4-4.25km point, it got tough… All of it :p the push, the pull, the whole breathing element too. Finished my row in 22:43 anyway. 😀 B*tch, please!
And the best way to celebrate a successful WOD? Or anything really, let’s be serious…
Mmmm… FOOD. Baked sweet potato sprinkled with a little garlic powder, onion powder, cumin & chili powder paired with a couple of eggs is probably my favourite breakfast. Or eaten at any time of day obviously.
