Well folks, it is only 3 days till we do Rita’s Burpee Mile! This Saturday at 8am a group of us will be lining up at the Y to cheer Rita on while doing her mile of burpees around the track. Rita really does know how to turn 51 with a bang! Each of us will be taking turns doing laps of burpees with Rita to help keep her motivated. Rita has asked that each of us dedicate each lap of burpees we do to someone or something. Mine will be dedicated to my grandparents. They were the people in my life who taught me to always look out for others and help them, that a individual can always make a difference, and so much more.
As for getting through a lap of burpees with the amazing Rita…I already called dibs on the second to last lap. I know there is no way I can keep up with her in the beginning. She is a power house!
Here are some fun burpee quotes I found online:
I died laughing at this one! Stay with burpees my friend!
I’ve kinda been slacking on my burpee pimpin’, so here is the burpee themed workout that I came up with and did last weekend, or if you are looking for a different burpee themed workout try my Burpee Time workout. I hope you sweat as much as I did! I’ve put links to two new exercise moves that I have not shared yet. The rest are all on the Exercise Term Glossary page. Remember to stretch when you have finished. Burpee On!!
