Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens!

There are indeed a few of my favorite things: Luke, running, and burpees.

I worked out at 8:30. I led the warmup and then Jeff coached the session. 

Athletes were presented 3 options, and I chose the most difficult of the 3. I set a goal to complete in fewer than 45 minutes, run continuously, and to complete all rounds of burpees unbroken. I achieved all 3 goals. I asked Jeff, “Are you proud of me for completing all of the rounds unbroken?” He replied, “I’m not not proud of you.” 

OPT A: Metcon (Time)

Run 200m carrying sandbag (45/25)

10 burpees over sandbag

Run 400m carrying sandbag

20 burpees over sandbag

Run 600m carrying sandbag
30 burpees over sandbag

Run 800m carrying sandbag
40 burpees over sandbag

Rest 2 minutes

Run 800m
40 6-count burpees
Run 600m

30 6-count burpees

Run 400m
20 6-count burpees

Run 200m

10 6-count burpees

2.5 mile run and 200 (100 sandbag and 100 6-count) burpees. Luke was particularly attentive today, and was as close as he could get to me as I did all rounds of burpees. He made me laugh! Janet and May also made me laugh. 

I completed the first half in 22:33, rested 2 minutes, and called time at 44:15. That’s a negative split, folks. Yes, I can run faster without carrying a 45# sandbag, but 6-count burpees take more time to complete than do sandbag burpees. I also did the round of 20 6-count burpees at a faster pace and the very last round of 10 6-count burpees as fast as I could. ‘Twas fun! 

My shirt, shorts, socks, and shoes were soaking wet. 

Luke being Luke.
Luke being Luke.
Luke closely monitoring my performance and May being May.
