But then came the metcon:
- In 4 minutes, row 400 meters and then max double-unders.
- Rest 1 minute.
That's right: ROWING. And DOUBLE-UNDERS. For a split second, I contemplated jumping into my car and speeding off.
On the plus side: During the first round, I managed a stretch of 51 consecutive double-unders. I'd like to think I could've kept going, but when I got over 50, I was so excited that I got myself tangled up in my rope. I'm nothing if not smooth.
When this one was over, I spent a good few minutes flat on my back. I think I hate cardio more than I hate hotel beds.
Result: 242 double-unders as RXed. Not super-shabby, though Mark beat me by a few reps. And by "a few," I mean over a hundred.
