Why is it that people hurt so bad when the Open comes around and we do those workouts? Probably because you are pushing so much harder than you usually do. But if that's the case then my question to you would be why? Why aren't you pushing that hard when you are here in the gym on a daily basis? I know, you have just come from work, or you aren't mentally thinking about the workout as if it was the Open, but I really feel that many are missing the point of our workouts. They are designed to be bad, really bad. Not just to destroy you but instead to get a particular result and reaction from your body. If you do a 5-minute workout as hard as you possibly can, then you should be smashed. I don't mean tired for the 30 seconds to 1 minute after, but really like blown out. But if you choose to do that workout and "get a good workout" and then decide you need to do 2 or 3 other workouts, then you didn't get the desired result. All you got was a short workout. And you are right, you probably do need to go and do another workout. But know that this won't give you the results you want. Keep in mind that it's about QUALITY of the workouts you do....not the QUANTITY you do. In fact, I'd say the VAST majority that do the extra workouts, should be doing skill work, drills, or strength work instead of more metcons. But even for the casual fitness goer here in the INFERNOs, give each workout you do your 100%. That 100% will be relative to what you had going on that day, but get the most out of it!! It's your time to give your body what it needs:)
