4 km Run
8 Rounds of 20 Burpees + 400m run
1 round of 40 Burpees + 800m run
No PR but felt much more consistent.
Next year will try:
2 Rnds: 40 Burpees + 800m
4 Rnds: 20 Burpees + 400m
4 Rnds: 10 Burpees + 200m
Memorable quote from a war veteran on the history channel:
“I don’t wear these medals for me, I wear them for comrades, friends, who died and never got their medals…never saw them.”
4 km Run
Did 50 Burpees – 1 mile – 50 – 1 mile – 50 – 800m – 50
Next time I’ll try shorter rounds.
I went into this planning to do the 4k then the burpees and was told it was a ‘silly idea’ .. So when the clock started I had no plan and I made it up (bargained with myself) as I went along..
800m – 20 burpees
1200m – 80 burpees
800m – 50 burpees
800m – 50 burpees
I underestimated the burpees today.. The Mayhem wods I did Thursday along with the ‘fun’ yesterday seriously tested my chest and arms today..
Feels good to be alive!
40 Burpees + 800m
Then 8 rounds of 20 Burpees + 400m
And a sprint to the finish.
Scaled to 2k 100 burpees
5 rounds of 400m run 20 burpees
Went to time cap to see how i I could do

The Fallen – scaled and modified.
My plan was to do the following (which would have been 1/2 reps):
I stopped after the 3rd set of down-ups for a total of 60 down-ups and 1km rowing. Time: 16:10.
I couldn’t get a good rhythm for breathing during the rowing or the down-ups and was feeling very sluggish.
Posting this for the future so I can see that I attempted 1/2 of the Fallen at 32w6d pregnant.
Part of my Precision Nutrition homework was a mind-body scan and this is what I wrote about what I was thinking:
After stopping my workout early, I had a chat with myself while sitting on the floor. I’m still moving, even if it is at a significantly slower pace. Doing 60 down ups is more than I did during my whole 1st pregnancy, so I should be proud of that.
We still have to go to Costco today, so don’t push too hard and then have to hobble along for the rest of the day.
