Burpee Day

100 burpees


That's a new PR for me on concrete.  Burpees are so great.  They are terrible but they are great.  They just make you feel like your body doesn't work anymore.  I saw a workout a while back where some guy did 1000 burpees with an 800 meter run mixed in after every 100.  Insanity.

Moving day is just a week away.  That will be rough.  Moving into the new house will be great.  Can't wait for that.

Calm Before the Storm

1 mile run
50 burpees

I ran out of time today so instead of doing 15 minutes of kettlebell swings I did 50 burpees.  I should have just kept going all the way to 100.  Over the weekend Derek and I did a crazy 12 200 meter sprint workout.  That was hard.  I haven't sprinted all out like that in years.  When I say years, I mean like 15 years.  It felt good to turn it on like that, but it definitely pulled on some muscle fibers that have not been tested in some time.  If I ever want to get my run times down, I'll need to do more of that.

The house hunting adventure could be coming to it's final chapter.  We are currently bidding on a house that I really like.  It's in a great location at a price that is right in line with what I was thinking we would spend.  I try to not get too invested in any potential house because I know how easy it is to lose a bid.  However, I am really hoping this one happens.
