NerdStrong Gym - The Nerdy Thirty Workout
You can tell he missed us because his workout is just crazy. I usually get to class about 15 minutes before the start time and watch the earlier class finish up. You can always tell if the workout is going to be a good/tough one by the amount of gasping and sweating that's going on. Well this time folks looked tired but several of them saw me and said "Run"... "Run while you still can..". Now I've never considered not doing a workout after seeing what was planned but having folks actually tell me to leave while I still can didn't bode so well, but I didn't listen and stuck it out.
The warm up alone should have been the first sign. We did something called "Death by 10 meters" They mark out a 10 meter section and you start on one end. When coach says go you sprint to the other end.. it's not so bad. Then you get a :30 second break and have to do it again.. this time you are going 20 meters, so that means up and back. Again you sprint it and get another :30 second break before doing 30 meters.. this pattern continues until you are struggling to finish 150 meters with in the time allotted. In total we sprinted 1200 meters.. OMG!!
Towards the end all the other Nerdstrongers were done so they gathered around me and helped cheer me on for my final 15 burpees.. that was a huge help of encouragement. Just one of the many reasons I love this gym. Thanks coach Blair for the great workout and for helping get through the rough patch.
