63 degrees and rainy
We had a great run this morning — cool, drizzly, refreshing. I had to get to my Corporate Overlord Cube™ early today, so we ran close to home. I thought it was kinda fun to run past the businesses on South Congress and browse the windows. Dave wasn’t a fan, so I think we’ll be sticking to the hike & bike trail from now on.
I’m woefully behind on my burpees, and I’m not sure how to proceed. The way I see it, I have four options:
1. Suck it up tomorrow and do the 135 burpees I need to do to get current. It would be miserable, but I think I could do it if I do half of them after Bootcamp and half after work.
2. Give myself a “you were sick” break and jump back into the fray today without doing the make-up burpees. Do 30 today and stay on track for the remainder of the 100 Day Challenge.
3. Abandon the Challenge. Who wants to do 100 burpees anyway?
4. Re-start the Challenge at Day 1 and try my best not to miss any days so I don’t have to do a massive make-up again.
I’m torn between option 1 and 2. Boy! I would really like a free pass to skip doing 135 burpees in one day — but that flies directly in the face of my mantra “Never cheat. Never quit.”
Option 3 is not really an option at all. And option 4 seems unrealistic — I’ll be doing make-ups again sometime, and if I start over now, I won’t have the support of knowing everyone else who’s doing it is suffering along with me.
What do you think I should do? Post in my comments and let me know. I’ve got to decide by tomorrow (or face the misery of 166 burpees in one day)!
