Barbell training weekend

I just added a page of notes that I took at Mark Rippetoe’s CrossFit barbell certification course. It’s listed under Pages on the left.

Today’s workout at CrossFit Seattle, with Tim, was:
Run 400 meters
Tabata mash-up (alternating burpees and sit-ups) for 8 rounds
Run 400 meters

I did a total of 125 burpees and sit-ups, much fewer than the guys I worked out with. But my second run was three seconds faster than my first one. I tore around the second corner and made up my mind to pass someone, which I did in the middle of that block, and then felt like I was going to die as I became more desperate to stay ahead of him. My two run times were 1:30 and 1:27.
