1,000 Burpees... seriously???

I love looking around the fitness blogs.  Amazing women who run, train, watch their nutrition, take care of themselves...

& I've been noticing something going around lately.

A challenge!


Now I love a challenge. 

Let me clarify that.  I'm HORRIBLE in completing a challenge, but I like to at least attempt them.  I love things that are goal oriented.  I think most runners like that.  That's what the FINISH line is all about.

But the challenge going around in February - 1,000 Burpees by the end of February



I hate Burpees.

Why?  Because they're hard.

I figured out the math too - its like 36 a day.  Oh my... my arms & back & legs are already groaning...

But a challenge isn't supposed to be easy - right?

& maybe I can break those 36 up ... a few in the morning - a few in the afternoon (Who doesn't love to do something embarrassing in the office?) - & a few more at night. 

I may take a stab at it.

& believe me, no one will be more surprised then me if I make the full 1,000

But hey, if I get in 500 (500? My head just swirled...) I'd be THRILLED...
I'll go for 1,000 but I'm not going to beat myself up.

Let's see how it goes.

Anyone else doing this?  Or are all of you sane?


  1. Ooooh I hate burpees SO much, but I think I'm gonna try this challenge! I need more core strength. Thanks for sharing!

    1. We're a sick breed. We hate them, but we're willing to take the challenge :) YESSSSSS!!!

  2. Not a fan of burpees so I think i'll sit this one out! ( although I now feel guilty about it)
