They all feel the same

Tonight's CrossFit Endurance workout was 4 x 5:00/3:00r (5 minutes rowing followed by 3 minutes of rest). This was more of a pace workout. The objective was to pick a pace that you could maintain for all 4 intervals and keep the overall distance rowed basically the same. I managed that pretty well with interval distances of 1304, 1301, 1308, and 1307. Pretty consistent.

An interesting thing occurred to me at the end of the workout. It doesn't seem to matter what the CrossFit Endurance workout is, I feel about the same level of exhaustion after all of them. It may be a bunch of short, all-out, 100m intervals, or a smaller collection of longer intervals like we did tonight. They all feel about the same in the end... It's that I-want-to-fall-off-the-rower-an-curl-up-in-a-fetal-position kind of exhausted. I have yet to finish a CrossFit Endurance rowing WOD where I felt like I left something in the tank. It seems to consistently take everything out of me.

I really can't say that any other piece of exercise equipment I've used has been that effective.
