Team Clean

I hardly have the energy to type this.  I am not sure if it’s because yesterday and this morning’s WOD kicked my ass so hard or that I might be coming down with the plague that has hit my company pretty hard.  Fuck.

I love sprint / interval WODs and I was really looking forward to today’s.  It was:

4 rounds of

:20 burpees / :20 row for total meters, three minute rest in between

Rest 7 minutes and then repeat the above.

Three minutes rest in between after :40 seconds of hard work?  Looked like my kind of workout.  I partnered with Kevin, who is usually an afternoon / evening class guy – but he made a guest appearance in our class.  Jarrod dubbed us “Team Clean” because Kevin has one of the fastest cleans in the gym and we’re both suffering from shoulder stuff – so all we can both do is clean.  Kevin’s metcon is amazing.  He banged out on average 12 burpees per round and around 100m per round for the row.  I screwed him on two rounds – one of them I didn’t hit the row button hard enough and he had to row for an extra 5 seconds (blargh!) and then I counted 6 twice on his burpees in another round.

This workout was BRUTAL.  I thought I was going to pass out with the 7 minute break in between.  I was dizzy, I had stitch in my side – I literally gave this workout everything that I had in the tank.  I averaged about 8-9 burpees per round and 95m per round for the row.   My last burpee of my last set I was so determined to get my hands above my head, I almost fell face first onto the floor.  I think today, I realized the true meaning of digging deep.   I had trouble getting into my car, putting the key into the ignition (I think I tried and failed like three times), and just driving to my house.  When I got home, I went upstairs and laid on the floor for a good 10 minutes.  Then I realized that I forgot my phone at Craic and had to get back into the car.  Niko wouldn’t let me drive for a bit because I was a little loopy (which is probably a good idea).  This was probably the closest that I’ve gotten to vomiting after a workout (and/or passing out!) Some of this is probably due to the fact that I’m not hydrating as much as I should (colder weather makes me forget that I’m thirsty!) but mostly because I pushed myself as much as I could today.

Here’s a breakdown of the scores.  The totals might be a bit messed up because I was doing the math in my head while being completely out of my mind.
