Monday's Workout

Strength Skill:
  • Thrusters
  • 4 rounds: Run 600 meters
Penalty for every +/- 5 second deviation from the previous round's time: 10 burpees.

Result: 2:37 | 2:25 | 2:25 | 2:22

I started off trotting slowly, with a plan to incrementally increase my speed on subsequent rounds, and finished my second 600 meter run 12 seconds faster than my first. FAIL. I'd stupidly overlooked the "+/-" piece. The name of the game is consistency -- not speed.

After that, I kept my times within 3 seconds of each other. I still had to do 10 burpees, but here's a secret: I kind of like 'em. Lucky me.
