5k Recap by All-Around-Joe
When the 10 second countdown started I tossed my shirt to the side, and felt my adrenaline jump! The clock started and we were off and running (about 15 athletes per heat)! To my surprise two female athletes took the early lead on the run….
…We ran back to the starting line where our barbells were waiting, and we started heaving them overhead. I was able to easily burn through the shoulder to overheads, and head back out on the run.
I was able to stay in 2nd place through the second 800m run, and picked up the barbell for 15 quick front squat reps. I was strategically not going to go through all of the reps at once to save my legs for the run. Of course that sounds like a good plan in theory… After completing the final 10 front squats my legs were so full of blood that I felt like I was doing a bodybuilding workout, and I stumbled off on the third 800m run with what felt like balloons for legs.
