That wasn’t so bad after all – 35 min AMRAP
September 7, 2016
“conversation pace” is a great descriptor for me. Used to use this for years when running. How hard was the effort?
- Could you hold a conversation easily?
- Could you talk with single sentences?
- Can you only say a couple of words at a time?
- Can you only speak in monosyllables?
- Can you even breathe?
Of course I went a bit harder than “conversation pace” but only to about 75-80% where I was able to talk in single sentences. Pushing it but not that hard.
Handstand kick ups were interesting – in that a bunch of them turned into handstand holds. That’s something I really need to work on, and it was freakin’ awesome to feel vertical.
Hit 8 rounds with 30 seconds to spare, and that was with a steady sustained effort. Cool stuff.
35 minutes? It sounded long, but it didn’t feel long when I was into it. Then again, I love, love, love long sucky workouts.
Box was doing 800m run/ 60 cal row / 40 T2B / 25 deads @ 275#. Damn, that looked like fun.
