17.5 is…

March 23, 2017

Brutally elegant.  If you could send notes to a workout in class, I would send notes to 17.5.  If you could look longingly at a workout, and think about how you could have such a long wonderful relationship, I would daydream about 17.5.

Numbers just at the threshold of what seems to be doable, but in an amount that is playfully deceptive.  This will look simple on the board, and must us will woefully over estimate our fitness level.

On the surface, this seems like a major league pace workout.  Find a pace that is comfortable at first, and do your best to hold it.  I would guess many CFO athletes will be able to handle the thrusters unbroken.  That means you will need to be precise on the dubs, avoid misses, and find a perfect pace.  Sprinting may save you a couple of seconds, but may result in misses that will bring those hards earned seconds spinning away.

Finally, being aggressive on the transitions will be huge.  19 transitions means extra seconds will add up quickly.  Be careful to lay down your rope so you can pick it right up.
