Workout 6/13: Michael

Workout: "Michael"
3 Rounds for Time of:
800m Run
35 Back Extensions
35 Sit-ups
(Time: 24:50)

*Not so good. This workout had me sucking air big time this morning. I think I took those 800s at a pace that was a bit fast for me. I was trying to estimate my pace based on previous runs, but I most definitely overshot. The final two 800s were killer, and I had to take small breaks during it. I was bummed with that, but now I know that the pace needs to be reeled in a bit. It wasn't meant to be a Time Trial 800, so I'll learn from my mistake.

Note: I think I've found my big event for next year...

Good job on the workout! "Michael" is one of those that don't look as bad as some of the other CF WODs on paper, but it's quite a killer in its own right. I agree, it's always tempting to go out on all cylinders on the run. That's part of the fun of CrossFit -- learning how to pace yourself (of course while still putting out max effort) for maximum results.

I might be interested in the MC 200 next year. They tried to talk me onto a team this year but I declined. We'll talk and re-evaluate after the marathon.
