I cracked 3 minutes for 50 burpees which is great!  I’m not back to my best time from about 5 years ago when I was doing them more often.  I have a very different mindset about them this time.  Instead of suffering I look at them as a small crucible in which to begin to forge increased mental toughness.


I went to the North American Auto Show yesterday.  We casually walked around for about 2 hours.  It certainly wasn’t hard core exercise by any stretch of the imagination but it was a lot of fun and I was moving the whole time.

I did a great workout in the afternoon.  I did 15 sets of the following circuit:

  1. Kettlebell curls with the 62 pounders (hey – a guy can curl every once in a while)
  2. Pushups using my 71 pound KBs as handles and my feet elevated on a table.
  3. Jumping rope
  4. 10 burpees

Skipping is a real challenge when you get tired.  It also takes quite a bit of mental focus.  It was a great workout and took around 50 minutes or so.  I am loving the process of ratcheti
