Member achievement of the week (besides the 100 Burpee improvements) goes to Ben for juggling his marathon training plan, including a 10 mile long run this morning, and destroying multiple cross training sessions this week – often on the same day as a scheduled run! BEASTLY. Keep up the good work!
Today’s afternoon session was particularly awful for Davage and I. We did one minute of sprint-in-place speed rope immediately followed by one minute of burpees (Dave) and one minute of shouldering the sandbag (me). We repeated this two exercise circuit seven times with all out intensity and no breaks. We were both nauseated and completely annihilated after this 14:00 heart attack-inducing workout. Needless to say, a victory lap was in order. And, according to Dave, this workout was, “Harder than the 100 Burpee Challenge!”. I rarely hear of such a thing, unless we are referring to the Burpee Mile.
As for the reaction of the week, I am actually going to give this one to myself from after today’s workout. After set number seven timer went off, I gloriously dropped the sandbag and helplessly fell on top of it and completely lacked the strength or drive to budge from this humiliating position (see below). I’m sure Dave had a priceless reaction at the end of our interval session, as he usually does, but I was out of commission and did not have the mental capacity to take note of it.
Our victory lap…
The Reaction of the Week. Don’t give me any crap or I will injure you. Seriously.
