Death By Burpees

Training last Thursday was the devil lol!  It wasn't so bad at first.  I did some lat pull downs, all different sorts of squats, and walking up and down stairs.  Then he lowered my burpees.  You see, I was doing them on a bar that was probably at my waist.  First, he had me doing a few on a bench, which was MUCH lower than what I was used to.  It was soooo hard, but he believed I could do more.  So, he flipped a BOSU ball over and I used that.  Now, I'm not only practically on the ground, but not there is also a new, brief element of stability in play.  They were incredibly hard.  I cannot describe it.  At this point, I'm thinking we are done...not so fast.  He then takes me through a circuit of push ups, burpees on the BOSU ball, and walking lunges.  It just kept on and on forever!  I literally thought I was going to cry.  Towards the end of the 2nd circuit he looks at me and says, "Is that a...are you going to...don't you do not do it."  Yeah, I was really about to cry.  It was just so hard and I felt defeated knowing that I still had another round to go.  Something about hearing him say that did something to my pride though, and the tears that were about to fall dried up lol!
