Ow.

OK, on the as-sore-as-I've-ever-been-in-my-life scale, this is about an 8, maybe even a 9. Murph truly fucked us over, and I suspect it has kicked Rebecca out of the burpee challenge. Probably should not have done it 100%, looking back on it now. Well, what's done is done, we didn't get rhabdo, and we will get plenty of "rest" sitting on our asses driving up to Portland and back this weekend for a wedding. Last big trip of the summer, and then we can regain some fitness and dietary discipline next week.

Anyway, today I did 47 wince-inducing burpees and "climbed."

By "climbed," I mean I laughed my way up a couple A/B's, fell off a couple B's, and gave up. It wasn't pretty, but I hadn't climbed for a couple weeks and I didn't want to miss the chance.

Rebecca got me snazzy new climbing shoes for my birthday, and I'm very stoked. Didn't wear them today as I think I need a slightly larger size or maybe a different shoe, but SOON I will get to climb in something that doesn't smell like an alcoholic skunk's morning breath, and is not full of holes. Sharma better watch out, cause me and my new shoes, man...just wait.

Murph plus the burpees kicked my ass. I may be out too, not sure yet, but I certainly won't do them today, so I will be

SHIT, I just realized I forgot to do today's burpees. I'm not even sure what day we're on. Daniel and Rebecca, get good rest and give Portland my love. It's got to be beautiful there right now.

Today was 48.

I've managed to stay in the game, but it's been tough. I think perhaps diving right back into the deep end with a full Murph was...dumb. Each day is a little better than the day before, though, so I should still recover - the burpees are making it take a bit longer though.
