Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin’… For Burpees

Yes, back in the day, I played Laurie in “Oklahoma” and had the dubious honor of opening the show with an a cappellaOh, what a beautiful morning… oh, what a beautiful day…

I was thinking of that song this morning while Dave and I huffed/puffed our way through a bunch o’ burpees at the park where, you might recall, one lap equals 490 meters.

Our workout:
2 laps + 10 burpees
1 lap + 15 burpees
1/2 lap + 20 burpees
1/4 lap + 25 burpees
My time: 20 minutes, give or take

This is the first time in weeks that I’ve done two days of training in a row, and it felt great. Awesome! Wheeee! I was a little reluctant to peel myself out of bed this morning, but by the time we started the second lap around the park, I felt Good.

I got a beautiful feeeee-ling… everything’s going my way…

P.S. Thanks to CrossFit Central for the workout that inspired this one.

    Ha! I was Laurie when I was a senior in high school. I was a big singing nerd: county chorus, school musicals, even played a maid in a Civic Opera product of Annie in Reading, PA.

    After high school, I stopped doing on-stage drama and just played the piano at home… then a few years ago, I started playing keys and singing in bands in Austin.

    Awesome! Thanks for posting that song. My mom used to belt out that tune in the mornings to get me out of bed.
    What a workout! Sounds fun…in a punishing kind of way.
