Scout-O advanced course. I self-timed and just ran for fun since there were a couple controls on my course that I had hung. I felt okay but not amazingly fast during the course, and felt solid technically but to be fair it was a pretty easy course - only a couple small mistakes, maybe a few seconds each time. I finished in about 43 minutes. Alex, who is typically in front of me, finished in 43 minutes as well - with that finish time I would have expected to finish 4 to 8 minutes behind him. During Sprint Camp a couple months ago I was consistently about 20% slower than him. Ali finished in 37 minutes, and again, I would have expected to be much farther behind her than I actually was.
I was a little sore and fatigued from working out during the week, but I seemed to work through that pretty quickly.
So yeah. I was way faster than I would have expected, I don't think I've had a sub-7min/km race ever, so, progress!
5x1min ring holds, alternating with 5x1min hollow holds or 30 sit ups
Workout: 800m run 80 wall balls (16lb) 800m row
Half the group did the run first, the other half did the row first. I'm glad I did the run first, I stayed with the pack pretty easily through the whole thing then had energy for some kicks coming back in to just get in ahead of the group. The wall balls were an ordeal though, and I was struggling when I got to the row. 13:25 or so. (3:45 800m)
