Upgraded My Birthday Burpees

For my birthday this year I decided to upgrade my birthday burpees into burpee pull ups. That was for sure one of the less intelligent decisions I’ve made.

The first 25 or so weren’t bad. I was surprised. 25 - 35 were painful and by that time I was pouring sweat but it was still doable. I was starting to breathe heavy now.

That last 7 was pure hell. My entire body was burning and my hands were starting to get bitched up from the pull ups. I was over heating now. I kept thinking it really hurts but the faster I get through them the faster I can die. I barely made the last one but did it.

It felt really good afterwards to know that I pushed out of my comfort zone and did something different for my birthday. When I first came up with the idea of doing this I wasn’t sue I’d be able to finish it. I though I should be able to but wasn’t positive I’d make it and that’s why I went through with it. It took a lot out of me and I wound up not doing the actual WOD because I couldn’t recover from being over heated fast enough. I’m looking forward to doing at again next year.
