I Hate Burpees

So I really hate burpees. There is only one other crossfit move I hate more and that is thrusters. Burpees make me want to vomit and die at the same time. Maybe I am being a little dramatic.

So this mornings workout was…

When I saw the workout online, I did not see the EMOM of 5 wall balls. When I came in the gym and read this I want to cry. I think my expression was more like this…

I don’t know what is worse, the workout or the anticipation before the workout. I guess i just have really bad anxiety. Maybe I am just lazy.

When the clock started it was time to work.

I did good on my first 3 sets. I made it to burpee number 15 in the first minute, then 14 on the second, then 10 on the third. As you can tell I was slowly running out of gas.

I kept going. Knocking out every wall ball and burpee the workout called for. Finally I made it to 75 burpees. I was so glad it was over. I not only survived but felt like I could have done 100. Ok maybe not that many.

I finished in 8:44. It was a good time for someone who hates burpees and almost thought he was going to die.

I love crossfit and the challenges that come with it. Everyday I am pushed to my limits. It brings the better out of me and I love it. As for burpees…
