30×30 Burpee Challenge
On May 17th some friends from Mel’s Machines and I will be doing the Spartan Run, which is an 8 mile run with 20+ obstacles in between. Never having done this before, I have no idea how to train for this.
Well guess what I found out today? If you don’t (or can’t) complete an obstacle, you have to do 30 burpees as punishment before you can continue a race.
Have you ever done a burpee? It looks like this:
What the hell did I just sign up for???
Anyway, I’m interviewing Joe De Sena, the co-creator of the Spartan Run event, later this week, about his new book. He says the first thing to do to prepare is to do 30 burpees a day for 30 days. My husband is all smug because he just finished his 30 and I still have to do mine after this post. Humpf.
Do any of you lovely people want to join me in this 30×30 burpee challenge? Also, do you have a burning desire to ask Joe a question? If so, please let me know and I’ll see if I can throw your question in.
P.S. – If you were ever considering a Spartan Run, here is a link the promoters gave me to pass on to you!
