Running On Noodles

    OMG. I did a 1500m row for time at the end of a WOD, and when I stood up, I felt OK, but my legs gave out and a found myself sitting on the ground. OW. Got a nasty bruise from that one.

      Dang, Nicole! Sorry to hear about your bum 🙂

      I was really surprised when I stepped off my rower! I guess I never rowed hard enough or long enough before to get the noodle legs, but man! I won’t soon forget that.
