Sometimes I do what I want to do, most of the time I do what I have to do..
– Cicero, Gladiator.
9.45 am 7 Rounds of 250m Row/90s rest:
Total Time: 14’29 min – (1750m rowing, 5’29 min).
Luckily enough, the things I don’t want to do, somehow turns into the things I do want to do. It’s all about getting better, so I should welcome my goats as my friends since they’re bringing my physical chain’s total strength up, right?
Dream level for this one would have been to keep every round sub 45 sec, survival mode helped me to at least not drop over 50. Should definitely be able to go faster in the first 2-3 rounds, but just as last time, my legs just gave up. Think I was somewhere around 20s after Jobst, who kept every round except one sub 45!! As smoked as I was after this, arms screaming, head spinning, etc, I still like this weeks setup. Low volume, kind of low impact and short workouts.
If I feel totally recovered on Friday, as I should, I will however up the ante a bit and join Friday’s and Sat’s CCF-wods. Two benchmarks that is totally out of my comfort zone should be the perfect finisher for a deload week!
Meant to do the Pipe Track to ”my” cave today, but woke up to a fully covered Table Mountain. Hopefully the overcast, that now has vanished, will stay away tomorrow so I’ll get another chance.
PS. Pretty cool that they now have announced some more details about The 2011 CrossFit Games Open Qualifyers and finally has given us all some dates to look forward to! As much as I might have my doubts about the format this year, there’s nothing more to do then to prepare as good as possible and make sure to get to those Regionals. I feel pretty confident that my programming plan from next week and on will get me in a very competitive state, so bring it on!
