- Deadlifts (2 sets of 3, 3 sets of 1)
- 25 Burpee/ground-to-overheads with a 45-pound bumper plate
- 400 meter run - holding a 45-pound bumper plate
- 800 meter run - no plate
My kindergartner's about 45 pounds. I imagined doing a burpee and then hoisting him overhead -- 25 times. And then grabbing him and running 400 meters. The uneven weight distribution would have thrown me off balance, but on the other hand, I'd have a better grip on my five-year-old. Plus, during the run, I could just have him clutch onto my back and save myself the agony of trying to keep a hold of a heavy plate with fingers stiff from the cold.
I'm such a whiner.
Let's end on a positive note: After dropping off the weight for the final 800 meters, I felt like I could fly. It was like a weight had been lifted off of me. Because it was.
