Day 350!!!!

The days are actually flying by.  I only have 16 days left....when I started I thought this would never end, now it's hard to believe it is almost over.  I could not have done it without the amazing support system I have with my friends and family.  People greet me with "how many today" or "have you done your burpees yet" - I love it!

Please donate:

Day 344 was just burpees.

Day 345 - I tried out my friend's new crossfit box...Crossfit Brink. The skill that morning was to find your 3RM for push jerk
45x10 warm up
second attempt 110x2

the WOD was
10 min amrap
5 power snatch (65#)
10 push ups
15 toes 2 bar
I subbed the push ups for burpees just to get some out of the way.
ended up with 4 complete rounds and 2 snatches on the 5th round and 305 burpees to finish later that day!

Days 346-349 were only burpees

Today was a blast - I love my Wednesday park workouts with other people. I had 7 other people join in the craziness today.

7 rounds
50 burpees
40 sit ups
30 walking lunges
20 DU
10 toes 2 bar

Since last Wednesday's crazy park workout, I have only done burpees everyday - with an occasional core routine.  Another Wednesday today, another crazy park workout.  I made this workout a partner workout.

Please donate:

26 forward moving burpees -back and forth between 2 partners.

*lateral shuffle
*sit up
*Kettle bell swings
*russian twists
*bear crawl
*alt. 1 leg touch down
*prisoner squat with side crunch
*jumping jacks
*lower abs

These exercises have no set number - 1 partner does the first one continuously until the other partner completes 26 burpees - then they switch.  Once both partners have done the lateral shuffle and 26  burpees  - they move on to the run...and so on!!

ends with 5 more forward moving burprees each.

Me and Dave - 62:41

Thanks Jess and Carlos for joining in the fun!!

Day #322

Day 321 was just burpees.  Yesterday, day 322 I had a lot of fun (sort of).  I posted on facebook an invite for anyone to join me for my burpee workout at the park.  Surprisingly I had 4 other crazy people show up.  The workout I had planned was run 1 lap (which is 1/3 mile), then do 36 burpees....9 rounds (only 34 on the last round).  I told the others they could modify how ever they needed to.  I was so proud of them.! It took me 69:17 to finish, it was ridiculously hot outside (this was 10am).  The other 3 ladies modified by doing 15 burpees each round and then the one guy did pull ups (the bars were located about half way through the run) -he ran to them, 12 pull ups, then 12 burpees at the end of the lap!
