This is more of a Challenge Update that it is a Motivation Monday post. But it’s still something worth posting to help and encourage us to push more.
The first week was easy and tough. Easy because I haven’t touch a grain of sugar yet. Well, that’s not entirely true. I honestly forgot about the challenge on September 1 and only remembered it after I’ve consumed it. After that, it was easy peasy.
What was difficult but utterly satisfying was the burpees. I’m sad to report that I skipped 3 days due to sore knees but I will make up for it as the days go by. Like, I will actually do 2 runs a day for 3 days to make up for the 3 days that I missed.
After the second day that I missed the burpees, I tried to tackle it with a slightly sore knee but it took me long to finish it.
Here are my stats:
Day 1: 5:46
Day 2: 5:11
Day 3: 4:34
Day 4: FAIL
Day 5: FAIL
Day 6: 7:27
Day 7: FAIL
Day 8: 4:17
I notice that I am slowly speeding up on my 30 burpees and that is a good sign. I gas out less than before so that is an improvement. Day 6 was long because that was when my knee was sore and I was basically doing a lie-down-and-stand-up motion instead of burpees.
Most of my friends can do it in under 2 minutes. I am praying that by the end of the month, I should be able to hit a sub-4 or even a sub-3 or sub-2. 🙂
