I dusted off my jump rope and took all my equipment outside.
I flipped over the first card. 4 of clubs. Okay, push ups, that's fine. I flipped another card. 10 of clubs. 10 more push ups. The next card was a 7 of clubs. What the heck!? It was getting kind of hard to do the push ups. Next, the queen of clubs. OMG!!! MAKE THE MADNESS STOP!!!!
Then it was 6 of hearts. Burpees. No problem. I felt wobbly on the burpees.
Then, an Ace. Yay, jump rope! I have missed the jump rope. I chose the ambitious number of 200 jump rope rotations. I figured that would be doable. That's probably like 90 seconds of jumping rope, right? No problem.
Except it was a problem! Almost right away, jumping made my ankles hurt! I got in 30 rotations, then took a little break to stretch my ankles. I did 20 more rotations and gave up. My ankles hurt too bad.
I only got through 5 cards and my ass was kicked. This was BULLSHIT,
I put all my equipment away and went for a 5 mile run.
I don't often quit workouts. In fact, I can't think of the last time I quit a workout. It made me feel weak. Even my run started off crappy. I was tired. But around mile 3, I got a little pep in my step and kicked it up a notch.
Do you jump rope?
What's your favorite type of circuit?
