Three rounds for time of:
Row 500 meters
Run 400 meters
Post time to comments.
First WOD in three weeks. I think I’m glad to be back…
17:26 I think I might have been 16:46 can’t remember but it was a quick workout for sure my goal was 2 minutes per exercise but I messed that up first round was done in 5 minutes. I couldn’t sustain that pace and drifted every round a bit.
16:43(pr) russell had me and michael do this work out about 2 months ago my time was
19.23. starting to see some improvement just need to improve on my strength and get my hips to work.
Nice pic Joe! Good job on the PR
24:49 hopefully I am back to a more regular workout and sleep schedule.
I finished it.
Russell — Thanks for not letting me quit.
17:07 my burpees suck.
THanks for hanging around Zak
15:46. PR by 1:11.
Ok, I’ll be the first to admit that my diet is far from clean. I’ve been eating a lot of crap the last couple of months, so maybe that’s a big part of it. But I just don’t seem to recover between workouts. Just doing the warm up I could feel my arms and legs running out of gas. Today was not impressive. Managed a 20:12 with the ugliest burpees in crossfit history. I guess I need to give this zone diet a chance……..
12-9-6-3 reps for time of: 155# Power Cleans / Burpees – 6:16
Not a problem Kevin.
Diet plays a big role in recovery and a clean up month of Paleo/Zone may be what you need. But, a check of your training log may also be helpful. I use a calendar with Big X on workout days and Big 0 on rest/recovery days. You can easily see your consistency and spot patterns. Few months ago, I was having recovery problems and realized I hadn’t taken a back off/recovery week in several months.
20:09 PR by 24 seconds.
Things not to do before a workout such as this:
1) eat a lunch that includes blackened fish
2) row your 500m PR (1:49!!!)
3) Take a muscle relaxer.
That being said, my time was 19:41.
Katherine…..I can see getting away with #1 and #2. But #3 just makes NO SENSE at all!
That is really funny!
First timer…20:44- Did I mention that I hate running? Nevertheless, I do it diligently every time a WOD calls for it…=o)
That’s a pretty huge PR, Joe, awesome job. Especially since last time we only rowed 400m each round.
Hoping to make this one up on rest day.
My first one did it for 21:34 felt little better with my push ups but I still have long way to go by the way cut back on my daily r run just did 2.5 mils today had less energy after class.thanks Russel for pushing during my weak moments.
Kat, next time drink a beer with that muscle relaxer and dead fish. Then tell us if you see Elvis half-way through “Fran”.
19:32 – first time
Good job Kat on the PR! And your overall time was still awesome.
Great job Katie! Told you that you had good time going!!!
21:01- pr by more than 3 minutes
20:10. First time doing this one, and I’m really learning to hate burpees.
I subbed the row with SDLHP with the bar. Russell, can i get an official ruling as to how well that carries over? which one is harder? i’ve done both and i’m honestly not sure.
I”m gonna go with rowing being harder. The ERG puts tension on every muscle in the body for a prolonged period of time (the full stroke). Whereas a SDHP w/ 45# can pretty much be tossed up there with just the hip thrust.
I really don’t see any sub for a row that equals a row.
It has a unique suck all its own.
Not too impressive…as much as I hate running (or as Russell calls my run, “duck shuffling”) it was probably the easiest part of this workout. But I’m sure I’d be much better at it if I could run properly. I was just happy to finish.
My first post…one day late. First time doing this one. Was doing well, relatively speaking. Unfortunately, my motherly duties were required during my last set of burpees. I was asked to change my son’s diaper! So disappointed!! So, my time was inaccurate due to diaper change and rest time while changing a diaper. Julian was wondering why I was shaking! Is this a CrossFit first?
26:10 as rxd. DEATH to Burpees!!!! I hate them!
I half agree with you, klowe. For you the bar is like a small stick. for myself, who happens to be a small stick, the bar actually causes some muscle fatigue that i don’t get with the rower. Also, if i get tired on the rower, i can slow down but still keep rowing. if i get tired with the bar i have to drop the bar. i think because of that fact the potential time loss is more significant with the bar. I’d be willing to wager that for every round of that workout i could keep my 500m row under 2:00. the bar was slowing me significantly on round 3.
food for thought…..
