Headed to downtown Sacramento and met up with some buddies to run the 14th and H parking deck. It’s the tallest such structure in the area and has thus become something of a training ground for local outdoor fitness enthusiasts. The idea behind the WOD was to pair an all out effort (stair sprint) with a skill movement (double unders). We were working on the ability to perform the skill while in oxygen debt and with pumped out legs… mission accomplished. My first split was 1:54, my second 1:52, the third 2:07, the fourth 2:07, and the last 2:04. By the 3rd round my legs were giving way by the seventh floor, making the rest of the way and the doubles really uncomfortable. Overall, this really taxed me and tested my body’s bounce-back recovery, something that becomes really important in the middle of a workout. Best part about this is that all you need is a jump rope, a stopwatch, and some stairs.
