Filthy Fifty almost made me meet Pukie

it was a close one tonight, powered through the workout until i reached the burpees. got through 10 burpees and seemed to hit a wall. it took forvever to get through the rest (5 at a time). i had to argue with the voice telling me to quit. i then skipped to the finish line and tried to walk it off but ended up lying down and almost falling asleep. i feel great now though!!

Damn, you must not like having cartilage padding your knee joint...not sure that is a good move...speaking from experience. I worked out on my knee after tearing my ACL for about 2 weeks and I had to have 75% of the cartilage removed on the lateral side of my knee.

sweeet, just more to look forward to

I'm taking the rest of this week off to focus on prehab stuff they gave me and flexibility...hopefully this one workout won't hinder me too much
