    Jan 6th = No Burpees, SORRY. had the worst hang over all day, like death warmed up. I forgot how drinking straight gin with no mixer catches up with you. Good news though, I stayed within my KETO range and cals for that day, so not all bad, and fasting today because food will make me throw, lol.. see you all tomorrow.

    Hi everyone, been doing all kinds of fitness training but still up to this challenge.

    Today got 10 burpees done. I keep adding every day.

    I forgot to do today’s burpees and planks. Doh! I need to set a reminder on my phone.

    That’s a great idea- I am gonna set it for when I am work. Maybe I can get the juices flowing in between desk jockey life. 😜

    Ug. Maybe take TWO days off and get your electrolytes back up to snuff first. Starting from a position of healthy helps to build strength ! 💪

    Good work! Make sure to prioritize your fitness adventures for your current goals. That way if something slips to the side, you still have success. ( personal experience talking here 😆)

    Jan 6: 10 + 7
    So far this month: 65
    Some in am as part of my warm up for strength w/o and some after work before my quick treadmill trek.
    Finding it easier if I fist my hands on the mat instead of going flat. 👊

    Managed to do about 3 mins of modified burpees (roughly 20 of them) before getting ready for bed. I think I will shift to a strength workout that has burpees in it tomorrow. 3 mins and 17 calories burned isn’t a very motivating result for all the huffing and puffing I was doing.

    So far this month: 96
    After 9 days of superior activity efforts I need a day off, so one burpee it is, just to keep my streak alive. Thank goodness that was my original commitment cuz dang it was hard to get off the couch and DO it.

    Well, I am getting twinges in my knee again and was only able to do 5 very slow and very sad modified burpees. But I did get in a treadmill and plank workout, so today wasn’t a total wash.

    I went to the doc yesterday and turns out I have the flu. :( I did get the flu shot and I guess that’s the only reason I’m not much sicker. But still pretty weak. Will resume working on burpees in a few days. Love seeing y’alls posts!

    Uh oh. So maybe swap out burpees until that knee is taken care of Pisanee? I mean, burpees ARE a great addition to any cardio and strength routine but not so good for bodies needing repair, desperate for assessment and some down time. Runners are the WORST for putting in their stretch n recover stuff .. hmmm. That makes me wonder: how is your hip strength and mobility?

    I like this gal for her hip moves:

    Well that’s a total kick in keester Carole. 😕
    Stay hydrated, eat well and sleep to the max. 😷

    Hope you both are back to feeling fantabulous again real soon! 🤗

    .. hmmm. That makes me wonder: how is your hip strength and mobility?

    Good question, not sure how to measure that but they have never given me problems. In general, I am not very flexible though, so my range of motion can be limited.

    You know that ole song that goes sumthin like ‘ 🎼 an’the hip bone is connected to the leg bone, and the leg bone ... 🎶 ‘ ? Our bodies have a pulley system with muscles and ligaments. Thinking if you work on increasing your hip mobility you could see a change in your knee. As for measuring it- do a video - tons of them out there under hip mobility for runners - and you’ll learn right quick. ( I did) 😋

    Did them again as part of my warm up routine before lifting this morning.

    Kinda sad to think that 2yrs ago I was doing 120 a day in addition to regular stuff. Happy to know I can work my way back up to that again- if I go slow and train smart!
    Five months until my first two Spartans, eight until the Beast.
    I got this? 🙏

    Oops that last post should have said Jan 11, not 10.
    Today I revert to my silly lil one burpee. I didn’t want to tax myself overly- supposed to be a rest day and I already did an easy/slow run/walk. So ya. Monday I better rock this thing! 🙄

    For the love of gawd Kokoda- keep posting here so I have your beastly inspiration!❤️❤️

    I only did yoga and some planking in the am, plus a short run at lunch today- saw your post and decided I had enough gas in the tank to push it...

    Jan 13: 50. Yup fifty ... five-zero... woohoo!
    Total so far: 177
