Steady Grind with your partner. Break up Reps as you wish. Leave a little in the tank on each set.

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 Easy Row
3 Min Easy Ski
3 Min Easy 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.
