Many of you may be looking at tomorrow’s workout (or today’s, depending on when you’re reading this) and thinking “NO F’ing WAY!” For those of you who are excited to try this or do it again, get some!
If you’re looking at this and thinking, “I can’t do this” or “this is too hard”, just STOP right there. This is one of those workouts where you get to see what you’re made of. There is no skill involved here, not much game planning, well maybe a little. For the most part this is just a simple story of life… how many times can you fall down and get up. I have an idea, start with one and repeat over and over again.
In the past, as we have done this workout a few times before, we have put a cap on this workout but it never seems to hold. Anyone who has started has finished, even if it took them longer than the 60 minute class time. Just to give you a little background on this workout, it started with a fundraiser a few years back. A couple of us, Kyle, myself and a few others decided to do 1,000 burpees to raise awareness for the upcoming event. While this may have been one of the longest two hours of my life (not true, there’s been worse) when it was all over a couple things had emerged. 1) an intense sense of accomplishment for setting a goal and not backing down from it, 2) an increase in my “this sucks” capacity and 3) I will never be fazed or wince at anything less than 150 burpees ever again.
So come in tomorrow (today) and get your “this sucks” on. You may learn something new about yourself. Just show up, I’ll be proud of you just for being there.
Never Back Down!
