What Head Cold?

Sunday night I would feel my sinuses started to go a little nuts. Didn’t feel great on Monday so decided to take a rest day. By 8pm I was kind of miserable. Had to take Tuesday off work because I couldn’t stare at a computer without my eyes watering like crazy and if I sat up my nose wouldn’t stop dripping. Woke up feeling much better today though. Was unsure if I should do anything but decided to go in around 5:30 and get my rowing finished for the week.

Row: Engine

2 x 6,000m with 5:00 rest


  • Set 1: 2000m at rate 19, 2000m at rate 20, 2000m at rate 21
  • Set 2: Repeat and try to go a little faster (no more than 0:02/500m at each level)

I set a pretty slow goal of going 2:15-2:14-2:13 on the first set and figured I’d see how I felt after that. If I wasn’t feeling good I was prepared to just head home. Ended up feeling great though so bumped it up 2 seconds for each rate on the 2nd time through.

12k in less than an hour of total time (including rest). A few weeks ago I thought rowing that far was nuts and now it’s not that big of a deal.

Cool Down

  • 3×12 Reverse Hyper (160#)
  • Rolled lower back
  • OH mobility work

Next 3 days are going to be rough with the CrossFit Team Series workouts and a local partner competition.
