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
40 6-count burpees
30 6-count burpees
20 6-count burpees
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.
