-Workout was from the T-nation article found here: It looked like "fun"
-Core - it called for 2 minutes of each but I cut it down to 1 minute as my mountain climbers slowed down spectacularly after 45 seconds.
-Elasticity and Strength - Wow this really sucked ass, I had pretty much forgotten how grueling Alwyn's workouts could be. I totally underestimated how rough it would be, I kept thinking of something he wrote "..if you aren't wondering why the hell you are doing it, you aren't working hard enough"
-ESD - I could barely move my arms after this, ridiculous
-overall impression - I had fun, and hard in a completely different way than CF metcons, my legs are really sore today.
"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
-Kelly Starrett
