What a FUN week! .. ok let’s do some real talk – It’s been a pretty STRESSFUL week getting back into it after being in Key West and SMACK DAB into a busy week! BUT the excuses stop and I just go at it! How do I fit it all in? ANY WAY THAT I CAN! Much of the time I knock it out in the am OR I run home to hang out with Jaeden and do Turbo Fire or T25!

He never minds a visit mid day
Burpees have been a staple in my workouts and I’m gambling to say I LOVE THEM! I’ve learned to maintain consistency with my form, whether I do full floor burpees or plank burpees, so that I don’t compromise it and hurt myself. I tend to do about 10 at a time and then a brief rest before continuing and break them up – kind of like I do with runs and light posts. It seems to be working and I think I’ll try to keep them up even AFTER the #FFBurpee challenge!
Yesterday I was able to enjoy a FUN time with a client who ran her first mud run with me at the Spartan Special Ops Sprint! BOY that was a tough race! It was neat that here in Tampa and within the Spartan series, it was the first Special Ops Sprint race – 4 miles including 18 obstacles…and 105 burpees. 
A Full recap to come soon!

    Great workout week! No burpee challenge for me. A spartan race is on my to-run list.

    I can finally say, after 1 year, burpees aren’t so hard to do anymore, and neither is jumping rope!

    I just finished my 1,000 burpees yesterday. I must admit I now like..dare I say LOVE…burpees! I did 150 of them, alternating between running and burpees yesterday to finish the 1,000 for the month. Today I didn’t do any burpees and it felt like something was missing. I will be doing more burpees tomorrow…new goal to get to 1,500 by the end of the month.

    I’ll be able to participate in this next week for sure! This week was a little bit of this and that, mostly walking outside with the kids since it’s finally warm, a little yoga, and lots of unpacking/moving boxes! {That’s a workout in itself!} Starting the 21 Day Fix tomorrow and I have a feeling I’ll have PLENTY to share there, haha! 🙂 Sounds likes you had a great week!
