Last time out, GD scaled this as:

Big Dawgs, Pack and Puppies:
As Rx’d

Buttercups:
Cut the load in half. Do 5 X 100 M.

But won’t no-one here remember that

As a former runner I have learned from the school of hard knocks that you don’t mess around with all out sprint efforts unless you have been training them.

5 x 80m-100m for me at about 95-98% effort
Run on a gravel road uphill, 2-3% incline
Did not time.

That was more than enough sprint stimulus for me. Sprints #4-5 I could really feel my legs objecting.  Will probably hurt for a few days, especially coming on the heels of the 75 GHD sit-ups a couple of days ago.

Then Death By Burpees—12 Rounds + 8 Reps.

Buttercup today

Knew I was done at five when I remembered some commentary from one of this years regionals “laying on the ground doing an impression of bacon, not knowing what side to be on”

I live on a hill and have no accessible running tracks so with 25 measured meters of string I walked over to a field that at a glance looks level and smooth, the reality was grass past my knees slightly sloping and quite uneven.  I chose to go for it as we don’t always get to choose when and where we have to run, so I measured 100m, did anyone else think its shorter when your shooting?  And at run three my mid thigh was cramping from the high knee rises to deal with the ground conditions.

Times
22:0 u
19:9 d
20:4 u
19:04 d
20:9 u
U & d are for the slight up and down of the direction of travel

Next time I’m looking for a running track

Want a good work out try the farmers field sprints, they will mess you up!

Ps still getting better,  have a good day guys
