Result - 12:02
I think I would have done better if it wasn't so muggy. It was stifling outside... Even worse inside. I thought I drank enough water during the day, but by workout time I was having headaches. A guy from my Elements class was just finishing his workout. "It's all cardio," he said. When I mentioned how hot is was inside, he replied, "it gets worse when you come back in for the run."
Oy.
As for the running. I didn't like it before, and I certainly don't like it anymore now. Sure, I'd force myself to go for "runs" to get ready for 5k's, but that was it. I wasn't doing weights. There were a couple flashes of lightning, so definitely hell no to running. The other options were not any better - 50 double unders; 500 meter row; and I think 24" box jump overs. I picked rowing, which I thought would be the easiest of the options.
Yeah, no. Rowing lasted one round. I sucked it up and ran the rest. The rain by that point was pretty light and slightly refreshing. Used a 25lb kettlebell and for the most part had no problems there, but I do need to work on my form. Pull-ups I used the green and blue bands, and no problems there.
Post WOD. Rowing. Another reason why I stopped rowing at round one. 2000 meters, split between three people. Each stint was about 250 meters, while the rest of the team had to do planks. Not bad, but I need to work more on it.
