The goal is just to get fit.  Make it the best hour of your day, stay safe, turn up the music, high five some people, and blow off some steam.  So remember that.  Relax.  Have fun.  Work out.

Truth!  This is how I sit on my weight bench after a really hard day of working out, only I'm a little (okay, a LOT) more sweatier than he is!  ;)

Well, I think I'm getting stronger from doing burpees so much this month - if soreness is anything to go by.  After doing burpees yesterday, I was extremely sore around my ribcage/back area - but this morning?  Not so much.  Usually if I'm sore right after working out, I'm worse the morning after - so maybe those muscles are getting stronger - or just used to being "used".  I don't know, but I'll take any day that I'm not super sore!

Today's workout sounds easy, which means it will probably kill me!  That's usually the way it goes.

   3 rounds of:
      21 Thrusters w/20 lbs
      21 CrossFit sit-ups
      15 Thrusters w/20 lbs
      15 CrossFit sit-ups
      9 Thrusters w/20 lbs
      9 CrossFit sit-ups

March Madness:
   25 Squats
   15 Burpees

I'd love to get some kind of running in, but I'll have to see what kind of time I have left.  Hayley has been out of school this week and so far we haven't done much - so I really need to do something fun with her.  :)
13:01 - Man, did this make me sweat!  Strange thing - my sit-ups became more difficult, but my thrusters became easier each round.  Go figure!  The only thing I can think of is maybe my legs were tight and once they loosened up it got easier?  I don't know, but it sounds good!

I used 24# for all thrusters.  The first round of "21" reps on thrusters were awful!  I kept thinking, "Why am I working out today?"  But they got better (thank goodness!) so I was able to shut up the voice in my head!!  The third round of "21" reps on sit-ups slowed me down.  I had to stop after 13 and stretch my arms over my head, then I continued on.  I had no problems with any of the other reps, though - did them all start to finish.

I was going to count the squatting done with my thrusters against my March Madness squats, but changed my mind.  They were super easy without the added weight!  lol  Burpees?  Burpees??  WHY do I continue with the burpees??   It's madness, I tell you!  Madness!!!  I guess naming this extra workout March Madness fits it perfectly, huh?  I did my 15 burpees, but jeez!  Those things get my heart rate going like bonkers!  BUT - I did them, and I'm glad I did them.  Accomplishment - another workout on the chart.  Life is good.  :)
