Will you be TOSH’s Valentine?
Love is in the air this week and how better to celebrate? That’s right. TOSH. In CFE, we know how to get your heart racing!
Short Interval: 4-8 x 400m, rest 1:30. Hold times between 3-5 seconds.
C2 Workout: 4-8 x 500m, rest 1:30. Hold times between 3-5 seconds.
Long Interval: 3 Rounds of 200m, 400m, 600m. Rest the exact amount of time it takes you to do each effort. For example, if it takes you 35 seconds to run a 200m, you rest 35 seconds and then start your 400m.
C2 Workout: 3 Rounds 250m, 500m and 750m. Rest the exact amount of time it takes you to do each effort.
Long Run (NOT COACHED)- 5Miles at 85% of your 5K TT pace
All workouts will be performed outside at CFS unless there is inclimate weather. Inclimate weather will be defined as:
-Snow or ice on the ground in the CFS parking lot and surrounding streets.
-Wind chill below 30 degrees.
-Raining (more than just a sprinkle).
-Temp greater than 100 degrees.
In the event of inclimate weather we will move the workout inside to the rowers. If the WOD that day involves the rowers the coach will find another interval/endurance-based workout to perform.

Monday evening runners…. as long as we have the space inside we will be warming up as usual but count on doing the short interval WOD on the rowers tomorrow for sure!
I get the idea, but what distances should I row for “TOSH”?
Jim, the rule of thumb for replacing rowing for running is to add 25meters to the row for every 100M on the run. So for Tosh
Row (250, 500, 750)x3 rest the exact amount of time it takes you to complete each distance.
I opted to do my workout at home on the treadmill since it was such a nasty day out & I got off work early.
5 x 400m 1:42, 1:41, 1:43, 1:42, 1:41 (easy to hold in 3-5 sec on treadmill!!)
Feb 13 C2 Row 4-8 x 500m rest 1:30
We packed the rowers tonight for endurance group! Good work everyone on your 500’s. So when I write the workouts for the week and you see “C2” that means Concept 2 rower- that is what we did tonight. Lets hope thursday we can go outside for “Tosh” if not, plan on rowing again. If you added your times to my notebook here is what I had:
Beth 2:14 2:14 2:15 2:16 2:16

Mark, Dan, Mary, and I did 500m x6 on the rowers today. Our first 500m was a 75% effort as a warm-up.
Dan: 1:51.6, 1:57. 1:58.3, 1:55.9, 1:56.6
Mark: 1:48.3, 1:51.8, 1:52.2, 1:45, 1:52.5
KT: 2:08, 2:00.5, 2:09.3
Finished the class with 5-4-3-2-1 Turkish Getups on each side with 10 GHD’s in between each round. Great midline stability/core work!!
Also, wet through some shoulder mobility with Mel. 🙂
Having a hard time getting going after this past weekend! Figured a little endurance work might be just what I need to get my butt going again…. As you can see below rowing is not my strength and I am not near as good with my consistency as I am with running

Hey Endurance Peeps,
A friend of mine is hosting The Saddlebrook Run (1 Mile Run, 5K and 10K race) for his youth baseball team, Midwest Orioles Baseball Club. It will be on Saturday March 3rd, 2012 at 8 AM in Saddlebrooke, MO. I believe it is south on Highway 65 towards Branson. There are prizes for the top male and female in the 5K and Oakley Sunglasses for the Top Male and Female in the 10K. The entry fee is relatively small fee of $18.00. The deadline is March 1 for the early entry fee. The race day fee is $20.00. Race details can be found on the OMRR website which most people are familiar with but here is the web link for OMRR:
That weekend only has one other race going on and this is the only 10 K race on the agenda for the weekend so might be a good chance for our Endurance athletes to try a 5K or roam into the 10K world.
He said the last couple of years they have 100 to 150 runners so it has a fairly good number.
If your looking for a good race this might be for you. The race course is advertised as a flat fast course so no hills.
that’s me! 🙂 i’m struggling to decide whether to do TOSH tomorrow or FGB…. both sound awesome. maybe TOSH on friday for me. brian, are you doing that race?
Jess I am going to try to get down there on that morning.
Trying to get my TOSH work in prior to FGB yesterday.
Two rounds (time permitted me only 2 Rds)
For the time crunch I ran my intervals with 30 second to 60 second rest in between. I didnt time them but just ran like Forrest today but my last round felt fairly strong and would say my times little slower but consistent.
Sweet, Brian! I will try to do that one if I don’t work that day! Sounds like a good cause!
Jess! I am not going to tell you what to do, but you can ALWAYS do TOSH. I am struggling with which one to do too. Either way? You will get your butt kicked! -kt
Sounds good KT.
Doing our own “Fight Gone Bad” with TOSH today at 10 a.m. Three rounds of equally hard work.
Dan: 41/1:39/2:42/43/1:46/2:48/45/1:49/2:45 – 29:16 total time with rests
Elizabeth: 40/1:25/2:22/39/1:28/2:21/40/1:29/2:21 – 24:58 total time with rests.
EXCELLENT work you two!!
I hope to do TOSH this weekend! – kt
Slow and steady wins MY race.
Did TOSH Rx today (last time it was scaled)
56/2:12/3:56/1:06/2:34/3:52/1:09/2:23/3:42 = 39:XX if I did my math right.
Felt good to push through RX distances tonight.
10 days. 🙂
Always keepin’ it real with the 5PM crew! We had a small group tonight but we had some fun with some shuttle sprints and Tosh! Tosh is a popular benchmark CFE WOD so fear not…. you will meet Tosh again!
Here is what I had on my watch tonight-
Wayne (39 1:25 2:27)(38 1:32 2:35)(40 1:35 2:30) total tosh time approx- 27:31
Barbra (44 1:38 2:38)(44 1:40 2:38)(43 1:37 2:36) total 27:31
Leslie (45 1:38 2:38)(45 1:38 2:38)(43 1:37 2:36) total 27:31
Good work! See you next week 🙂
