So off I went.
Not surprisingly, even the warm-up was painful today. My squats and push-ups were hilariously awful, and brought out soreness in places that were entirely new to me.
And then Tim wrote the workout on the board.
5 rounds for time:
- Row 500 meters
- Run 400 meters
My rowing is bad enough when I'm fresh, so I knew I was in for a smackdown. And I was right. The first few rounds were tolerable, but by the fourth round, I was toast. My quads were out of juice, and my arms refused to pull. I got through the final two rounds, but I was running on fumes. I certainly got the gunk out -- but I did it sloooowly.
When I shuffled back from the final 400 meter run, I didn't melodramatically collapse to the floor (as per my usual practice) -- mostly because I wasn't sure I'd be able to get back up again.
Result: 22:36 as RXed.
