I know I have TRI fever right now but I have still been hitting CrossFit this week. On Tuesday we did the Tabatas WOD. The workout consisted of lunges, sit-ups, wall balls & ring rows followed by a 3 minute rest and then a 1 mile timed run.
Each exercise was performed x8 before rotating to the next. We had 20 seconds on, then a 10 second break, then we did it again x8. After the 8th set, we rotated to the next exercise. Fun!
The lunges, sit-ups and ring rows have all been explained (with diagrams) previously but the wall balls were new to us. Holding a 10# ball (soft), we did a squat, then exploded up into a jump while simultaneously throwing the ball up in the air at the wall above our head. So much fun but required a bit of coordination and timing.
After all 8 sets of each move we took 3 minutes to rest then went immediately into a 1 mile timed run. Half of us hit the street using the GPS off of someone’s phone, the other half did 400 meter out and backs that were pre-marked by the club (x4). Ironically ALL of the people who did the out and backs beat those of us who took to the streets. Were they faster? Or was one of the distances off? Hard to tell. I ran a 7:57 timed mile. Hmmmm, was I really that slow ? I don’t know but I was displeased to say the least.

7:57 mile sounds like a good time after that TABATA!!!
