Brian came over and we did some work in the garage tonight. We’re both doing the beginner competition in two weeks so want to work on some stuff we don’t do much of in our normal WODs at Survival Fitness.
I was thinking to do some EMOTM for 10 minutes but Brian had a good idea to do Death By instead. He did cleans and I did thrusters. I used 115# for my thrusters because I wanted to get in some heavier work. Made it through the round of 7 and then got in my 7th rep of 8 just as the minute expired.
The first WOD in the competition is an 800m run with 25# of weight. They won’t say if it’s a sandbag, plate, DB, KB, or anything else, so I guess it’s a good idea to prepare for anything. I wanted to keep up some intensity, so we did the following:
- 200m Weighted Run (25# bumper plate)
- 1m Rest
I finished each run in almost exactly 1 minute and the clock hit exactly 9:00 as I finished my last run. The 200m was a good distance for this. Obviously it’ll be impossible to keep up that kind of intensity, but this word should make the longer run a bit easier. It’s really awkward carrying a plate, but I think a DB and a KB would be even worse. I think I’ll try it with a DB next week.
