I’m doing a 30-day Burpee Challenge. Now don’t get all excited, it’s just 10 Burpees a day. I have a chart (of course) to check off my days and I also have outlined 4 ways to do the Burpees. They are…
- with a push-up
- without a push-up (which some purists will say is a ‘squat thrust’ but whatevs)
- with a push-up and a jumping jack
- with a 180 degree turn (when you come back to standing, you hop 180 degrees)
Every day I bang out my 10 Burpees. No biggie. 1, 2, 3, etc. and I’m done.
(ps – that’s not me over to the left)
On Sunday, I realized that I’d skipped a few days so I had to do 40 to catch up. Now, some people would just say well, I’ll add 4 days to the challenge. But I figured I made the calendar and didn’t feel like re-doing it so I just caught up in one fell swoop. I’m funny that way. It’s less work to do the Burpees than it would be to re-create a calendar.
It was Easter morning and a gorgeous day so I dragged 2 yoga mats out in the backyard on the cement (which is why I grabbed 2 mats). 1 set, no prob. 2 sets, ok. 3 sets, sweating and by the 4th set I was slipping all over the place. But I got them done. And grabbed some water.
Lesson learned. 10 a day, no matter what.
Now go run!
