To whom it may concern,
PLEASE let Coach Dave be wrong! PLEASE let there not be thrusters in 16.5. please??
I think it was 2 weeks ago that I went to the box on a Thursday morning planning to just stretch and roll out and got suckered into an “aggressive flush” (as designated by Coach Dave. Don’t think too hard about that or it gets weird.) Yup. Did I learn my lesson? Apparently not cause I went in today with pretty much the same intention and ended with the same result. That my friends is insanity, by definition. The only differentiator today was I didn’t hold back and pace myself cause it was a partner WOD. Went HARD out of the gate, like 1:35-1:40 split time (dumb. even 250m at a time I can’t sprint for 3km), crashed and burned just after the half-way point then got my sh*t together and found my pace.
Thurs. Mar. 24:
In Teams of 2, Row 6000m
*Every 1000m completed as a team:
30- Wallballs #20
2- Rope Climbs
*Partition as needed*
*Must switch athletes every 250m completed on the rower*
Can’t tell you what our time was, but the last time I looked at the clock during our final row it said 33 something… so I know it was more than that lol! Another new experience – rope climbing with still numb calves and feet. Quite possibly the weirdest yet and my inner thighs and knees are not overly impressed with how tightly they had to squeeze the rope, but tough. Oh! And the 20lb wallball SUCKS! Thank god this workout wasn’t judged, cause I’m pretty sure even though I jumped hard for every rep I still missed the line often.
Like previous years, this is the time I’m ready for the Open to be over. One WOD stands between getting back to my regularly scheduled program and I fully anticipate it to be a rough one. Unlike previous years, my regularly scheduled program will most likely see a re-vamp after tomorrow. Summer is coming. Shorts, and tank tops and beach weather… and some races with my chick. Running has already resurfaced in my life and is about to take up a more significant part in my story soon. If only it would stop with the icy, wintery sh*t outside already cause I can’t wait to get back on the trails.
