When you're hungover, do bear crawls

Workout of the Day

20 minute AMRAP:

20 meter downhill bearcrawl

20 meter uphill walking lunge

10 burpees

After a long night of celebrating my cousin Tylor’s high school graduation, which included an 8-0 beer pong performance turned in by Aunt Shelby and I, things were feeling pretty groggy. Luckily my family is all about getting involved so I had 5 others joining me in the back yard for the workout: my cousin Brad and his girlfriend Megan, my mother and sister, my cousin Bailey, and Tylor’s friend Danielle. We were quite the motley crew out there to say the least. To make things even better, the rest of the family was lining up on the deck and in lawn chairs to witness the spectacle. Besides my mother, not one of these people had ever done a proper CrossFit workout, but they were eager and excited. Much of this boiled off by minute 5 as everyone was sucking fruitlessly at the mile high air, but still, props to everyone for being fearless in the face of nasty hangovers. So much fun.

I finished 12 rounds in the 20 minutes and could feel some residual soreness in my legs from Friday. The burpees were rough towards the end and the downhill crawls while dodging dog shit got interesting at times, but overall this wasn’t too bad. Certainly felt better than the run in Tahoe last Thursday.

Tomorrow we are all heading to Red Rocks Amphitheater for an excursion and I can’t wait to see what we get into. Always wanted to see this place.
