400m repeats

For the first time — since before I got pregnant with Mads — I showed up at the track for one of the free Endurance workouts.  Unlike the last time I showed up at the track, it wasn’t cold and dark.  It was sunny and sweltering.

96 degrees.

And I had just done “Fran” that morning.  What was I thinking?

Maybe the heat had affected me.  Or my friends.  Beth and Steph went with me, and this is what we did with about 5 other Crossfitters:

4 rounds
400m run
50 squats

The goal was to go hard on the run and use the squats as recovery.  Coach Benjamin, who is part of Crossfit Central’s Endurance program, said we should aim to keep each 400 under 2 minutes and within 10 seconds of each other.

My first 400 was 1:49, but I don’t know what the rest were.  I don’t have a watch and it was HOT.  I’m sure they weren’t within 10 seconds of that.  I have no idea how long the entire WOD took, but I was really sweaty afterward.  It felt good to be be over, but in the end, it was good to be back at the track.

When I got home, I FEASTED on the frittata Andy had made for dinner and some salad.  I was sooooooo hungry.  And I wondered whether I would be able to drag myself out of bed in the morning to do the home WOD I had planned.

Guess what.  I didn’t.  Maybe tonight.
