I was tired today and so my workout was late and not very pretty . I don’t like to work out at night but didn’t have a choice, so blasted out a quicke of 18 rounds/30 second side jump lunge intervals and did my 1000 club burpees.
As i did my 730th burpee this mont, I remembered how in January of 2010 I was forced to quit 1000 club push ups because of my recently broken, still healing wrist. I didn’t have the strength or flexibility to get past 743. 🙁 I finished my sit ups and back extensions, but had to stop the push ups.
Though i am still working on my form and depth, i did my 750th burpee today! Its taken me 2 years to gain back the strength & flex I once had in my right wrist, and I feel so fortunate to have it back. To be able to do 1000 burpees in one month, for me, is a big victory.
