Run 10 miles
150 burpess pullups
Break it up anyway you want
I am doing this during lunch today at CrossFit LoDo and I plan on breaking it up into 10 rounds of 1 mile run and 15 burpee pullups. Pray for me. My goal is less than 2.5 hours…lol…
Pain…much pain. The first 5 miles the running was the easy part. After the 15 burpee pullups the first 400 meters was sort of tough but the last 3/4 of a mile were easy. So much so that I thought about running 2 miles at a time each time I was completing my last lap and heading into the gym for the burpee pullups. But I decided to stick to my strategy of 10 rounds and kept it up so I didn’t have to do 30 or more burpee pullups at one time.
By mile 7 I started to feel like my feet were stuck in Jell-O. The most I have ever run at one time in my life is the BolderBoulder and that is 6.2 miles (10k). I have walked 36 holes of golf plenty of times and that is maybe 12-14 miles of walking but that covers a good 11-12 hours of time. So when I was into mile 7 my body started to scream a bit.
By mile 9 the burpee pullups were clearly the easier task. I really started to make sure I got some water when I went into the gym and I think the fact that I didn’t take in enough water earlier might have cost me a bit in the hamstring area…
By mile 10 I was walking once or twice each lap. My lungs felt great but my hammy’s did not. They started to get really, really tight.
I completed it in 2:08 and spent a good 30 minutes stretching. Rolling out, basic hamstring stretches on the ground, GHD back extensions and just relaxing. When I took my shower I could really feel the tightness behind my knees.
As I write this it is about 90 minutes after I got done and I feel fine. I wonder how I will feel tomorrow morning??
