The workout itself was obviously rough, went out way to hard on the first row which I suffered from the reminder of the wod, BUT the worst was post wod.
Walked around trying to get the lactic acid out of my system for a couple of minutes, but then I just had to lay down and was flat on my back for a good 5-10mins. Went up to have some dried fruit and my whey shake and then I passed out on the couch in the office for about 45mins. Guessing my body isn’t efficient at recovering from lactic acid work yet. Probably worst post wod knock out I ever had..
Not sure what the prescribed rest between the different parts is here, commented and asked today, but I rested 10 mins between all of them. Burpee broad jumps I kept slow and ”steady”, geez they hurt. Body weight triplet in the end was way rougher than I expected, pull ups a bit awkward but still unbroken and consecutive, push ups easy first two rounds and then dreadful with like 4 breaks, sit ups was perfect to make me feel like I was up side down in a roller coaster after each round.
Legs are getting sorer by the minute, looking forward to rest day tomorrow!
On another note: Cape Town is damn beautiful in summer, nuff’ said.
