8. Players Choice

With a 30 min Clock, you and your partner will try to complete as much work as possible. Roll the dice to see what you are doing. Once you have completed that objective roll again etc.. until 30 mins has elapsed. Good base building day. Just get some volume done.

GET OUTSIDE! Go do something active for 30-60+ mins at at moderate pace preferably with friends or family. (hike, jog, paddle, row, bike etc.) What you do matters less than just doing the duration at a conversational pace.  A few of these easy sessions per week can really enhance your cardiovascular base which can help with both high intensity performance & recovery.

Mental Restoration: Carve a little time today (but really everyday) to slow down and prep for next week. Plan Meals, stretch out, meditate? Set yourself up for success cause those that fail to plan are planning to fail.

Recovery WOD
“Around the World” for  3-5 Rounds
3 Min Row
3 Min Ski
3 Min Airdyne
3 Min Yoga Flow

Why are these workouts important? These should be easy efforts. Fully conversational or nose breathing only pace (which is REALLY SLOW!) Get blood flowing, flush out soreness and prep the body for the next harder session.
