Days 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, and 66 done.

2/3 complete, by days. By burpees: I've done 2,211 since the challenge began.

For perspective: The entire challenge contains 5050 burpees. The halfway mark for VOLUME is actually day 71.

It's gonna get deep here soon, gents. :)

Day 88: 88 Burpees
Day 89: 110 Burpees
Day 90: 107 Burpees
Day 91: 107 Burpees
Day 92: 107 Burpees
Day 93: 107 Burpees

Days 89-90 had added burpees, to make up for skipping day 83.
I'm now current and set for day 94, tomorrow. Had to come up
w/ some strategery for making up lost days, b/c my knees and
ankles are starting to feel it!

Days 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82 complete.

I hear ya, Gumby ... I pulled an erector spinae doing something stupid at powerlifting two weeks ago, and am pretty much 100% out of the gym right now.

But I'm doing burpees. SLOW. Like, I start with 2 or 3 straight out of bed, and do sets of anywhere between 2 and 10 depending on lower-back tolerance until I've got 'em knocked out (Example: I owe 50 more today).

So don't look for any speed records here. Looks like I'm going to scrape across the finish line on my chin.

You're nearly there -- less than a week. No doubt we'll see your completion-report shortly.

Gumby: Good On Yer. Glad you made it to the finish line!

So far: day 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, and 90 complete. Home stretch inbound. I'm getting to where I can lay down sets of 10 to 25 now, so the back is healing.

Days 91, 92, 93, 94, 95 complete.

I'm down to the final stretch. Question for the couple of you still monitoring here:

Day 100 will be Thursday, if I stay "on program."

Alternatively: Saturday, AZARNG is taking 20 currently-serving Guardsmen to the bottom of the Grand Canyon for the semiannual 24-mile rim-to-rim hike. I'm going (again). I'm considering saving "day 100" for the bottom of the Grand Canyon, before the Bright Angel ascent, because I think it'll be more fitting to finish in one of the most memorable, breathtaking examples of creative beauty on the planet.

The question: Does that meet the spirit of the challenge and tribute to SOTB? Or will you, my peers, consider it cheating?

In any event: SDG

Geoff

Thumbs up

Shit, you're already knocking them out, easy-peasy.

I'd like to think the Sultan Of The Burpee would finish up on Thurs...

AND knock out 101 in the Grand Canyon

Whatever you decide, great job!
