In retrospect, I'm really not sure what about this looked fun besides the running. I think the running part always grabs my attention. Plus the squat part...Have I mentioned that I'm doing so many squats lately that I can only believe that my butt must be starting to be irresistible?
Round 1 went pretty well. I ran a very fast 400 meters (for me) in less than 2 minutes. Got my 10 burpees done. Pushed through the push ups (no fun intended), and the squats were a piece of cake - I was really focusing on my form on those. Time was just over 5 minutes - not bad!
Round 2. Ran another fast 400 meters - just at 2 minutes. Burpees were challenging, but I got through. Push ups - wall. I did a mix of full push ups, girl push ups (using my knees), and then some altered push up where I went all the way to the floor and lifted myself up. Squats again were fine. Time is just under 12 minutes.
Round 4. More sweat. Run 400 meters just over 2 minutes again (somehow). Burpees - yeah, kill me. Suffer through them. Push ups...I'm really dying now. Barely make it through. Squats - finely getting a little challenging, but still not bad. I believe my time was now somewhere around 26 minutes.
Yep. I did it. I wanted to die afterwards. I felt a little nauseous. I remember sitting on the box we use for box jumps and thinking...now I know why people decide to sit on the couch and not work out. This was tough! It would have been so much easier to go run a few miles...or not workout at all. So now I know the feeling of doing a workout and feeling like I'm crazy!
And low and behold...I run into some fellow bloggers. Fate I tell you, fate! None other than M from Dodging Acorns and M from Filling Our Bucket. Fantastic ladies - love their blogs. I've got to give them some blog love now - so please go over and take a look at their blogs and follow them and give them some love. They are both working on being fitter ladies too (they both looked AMAZING today!!) - so they can use some encouragement and love. And they are both hilarious - so go check them out already!
What a great start to the week. See, I knew it would get better!
