Week 2: Burpees & SUP

Week 2: Burpees & SUP

That’s a wrap on week 2!

I hated all of the burpees, they are still the worst. They did however, prepare me well for stand-up paddle boarding and being able to pop up into a standing position more confidently. I did hundreds of burpees over the course of the week, working them into workouts as often as I could. I wish I could say that I got better at them, or that they got easier, but they didn’t.

Stand-up paddle boarding is totally my happy place. I love being in the ocean and it’s a really solid, yet peaceful workout.

Lessons learned:

  • engage your core as much as possible in both burpees and SUP

  • it helps to come down to your knees when you start to approach the shore so the waves don’t take you out

There were times with the wind where I felt like I wasn’t getting anywhere and there were also times when I felt like I was flying. The wind really impacts how you glide across the water.
