In Phoenix. There was a great Crossfit box less than half a mile from my hotel. They let me use an erg and didn’t even charge me a guest fee. They were also very nice, just like every other crossfit that I’ve visited.
I just wanted to munch some meters today. I intended to row at 186W, but the atmosphere got to me and I ended up pushing harder and running a higher heart rate than I should have. My HR monitor started acting stupid after 40 minutes, but even before that I was pushing up into the low 150s. After 60 minutes, I had to make a decision to either slow it way down or have a little fun. I decided on fun in the form of a 20 minute L4 with these powers
r18 – 180
r20 – 200
And I rowed 22/20/18/22/20/18/22/20/18/22 (2′ each). It was good sweaty exercise.
While I was rowing I saw them working on the WOD which was 8 rounds of 30 seconds on the rower shooting for max calories, then 30 seconds of box jumps with 30 second rests for 8 rounds. I didn’t see what they were pulling, but I did one 30 second rep just to try it out. I managed 19 calories in 30 seconds, which is about a 1:25 split.
Tomorrow: I’m due for an interval session. I’m thinking 5×1500 at a sedate 1:50 to keep things ticking over. I may back off since I will be fresh off the red eye.
