Attack of the double workout

It’s happened.

My weekend workouts have brought me to my knees.

It’s Sunday afternoon.  I’m wiped.  I’m already in my pajamas. It’s agony to stand up and walk, and sitting on the couch is about the only thing I can do.

I’m dreading the next time the baby needs me to get up and tend to her.

So what brought me to this sorry state?  Definitely Saturday’s team workout, with a run and a double WOD on top.

Jenny and I ran a couple of miles Sunday morning, since the Paramount 5K is closing in fast.

Then, Beth and Stephanie and I met at Zilker around midday to do Week 5’s endurance WOD.

16 rounds tabata running
20 sec sprints / 10 sec rest

We started on the trail across Barton Creek from Lou Neff Point and headed east to Auditorium Shores.  In the 8 minutes, we made it there and then some, covering 1 mile — which is pretty fast for me.  I actually thought this one was going to be fun, but with the rests so short, it was hard to regroup.  I found myself gasping the time to the others, only to hear the bell a second later.

We walked back to the playscape, which was a nice recovery.  Then Stephanie and I decided to knock out one more WOD for the week.  It was a calculated decision to pile up 2 workouts in one day.  I already knew I was going to be tired on Monday.  I chose to rest instead of pushing through until Friday without one.

We chose a spot in the field near the playscape at Zilker.  We got quite a few looks as we swung around those dumbbells, which was awesome.  I love attracting attention sometimes.

I had Beth take some pictures of us while she timed the workout.  Here’s what we did:

Time: 8:03

I used a 30# dumbbell (the weight for the elite level).

I think I’m going to go to sleep early tonight.  Zzzzzzzzzzzzz…
