Today’s training session, number 18, was a tough one. It was the first of (I suspect) many that will combine sand-bag get-ups with step-ups. In this instance, it was also “for time” which I suspect is a practical guarantee that I will see this nefariously tasking combination again. It’s hard to take any rest breaks when a section is “for time” as one of the goals is to complete the tasks in as little time as possible…turns out I was flat out for 45 minutes…and dropping sweat like I was a tropical storm.
This was a “work capacity” focused session-one intended to increase the amount of work that I am capable of doing. It’s working 🙂 The mental aspects of all of this toil are being very constructive and useful right now. I’m really wanting to work on mental strength (and this program is handy and efficient because it’s doing both physical and mental in one go).
