WOD Wednesday #6

4 rounds, each for time of:
800-meter run
Rest as needed between efforts.

Today we run. A single, simple exercise.  4 rounds, each for time, of “Run 800 Meters”, with a rest between each run sufficient to recover and run again. This is a RUN, not a jog. This implies a nearly full-on effort to go fast. To run that 800M in as little time as possible. Remember, “functional movements performed at relatively high intensity.” 800M is roughly 2 times around a standard high school track. Most tracks have starting points marked on them to help you out. If my math is correct 800M is ~0.485 Miles on a treadmill if you don’t have access to a track or need to run indoors. If you do run on a treadmill you should add in 1-2 degrees of elevation to more closely approximate the effort of running outside.
