Spartan Race 5 Minutes Burpees Challenge: It was ridiculously BRUTAL but I did it and I am elated! I thought I had done 85, but when I rewatched the video I had miscounted so I had done 84. It was ROUGH but I can say I am happy! I can't post the full video here because it's too long, the sped up version of the complete workout is 2 mins and 48 seconds. If you guys want to see it, please let me know. I'm thinking of either uploading it to my YouTube page or creating a Facebook page and uploading it there.
Yesterday I had attempted the challenge but I failed the mental battle and stopped at 53. However, between that time and today I prepared my mind - convincing myself that I will not give up, because I know I had the foundation to do a lot more than 53 burpees. Yesterday I had stopped the clock with 2 mins and 7 seconds remaining when I was at 53 (I streamed this live on my Periscope @ranzoinjapan). Today, I fought through the 5 minutes and completed 84 burpees - I was not going to lose the mental battle this time around. I had my headphones on because I was listening to some motivational speeches by Eric Thomas and the likes to ensure that I never gave up. And now I can say I'm happy!
My journey to complete 100 burpees in 5 minutes continues, but I'm pleased with today's results. Never give up guys! You can do it! Win the battle in your mind and you will also win it outside of your head! #aroo #spartan #fitness #lifestyle #burpees #5minuteburpeechallenge #spartanracejapan #runner #workout #healthlifestyle #fitnesslifestyle #motivation #determination #spartanrace #perseverance #nevergiveup #fitnessjourney #tokyo #japan #asia #blackinjapan @spartanracejp @spartanrace
