Today, the Army and Navy Women’s Rugby Teams were going to make history by playing their first Army vs Navy fixture at Twickenham. They still wanted to mark the occasion and decided to do 82,000 burpees together to raise money for the NHS. As the physio for the 7s team, I’ve been able to see a few of these incredible ladies in training and matches. It has been a pleasure working with them and taking part in this challenge.
I completed 1000 burpees. I started early and did them in 20s and they progressively got slower, by the end I was doing sets of 5. I can honestly say that this challenge has not made me like burpees… what a shock!
So far, over £15,000 has been raised for the NHS and over 86,000 burpees pledged!! It has been such an epic feeling to be part of this challenge. People have been doing more than they pledged so the final number will be higher and no, I did not do more than 1000 burpees.
I was supposed to be dragging a tyre around London Marathon this weekend, which has now been postponed until October and so I was wondering if there is anything else I could do inside the house. I did consider burpees for 24 hours, luckily I was persuaded against that idea! What could I do inside the house which could also get other people involved? Step ups! I was quite proud of the title if you see what I did there..
I will be completing 24 hours of step ups to raise money for the NHS. The 24 hours will run from Fri 24 Apr 1400 to Sat 25 Apr 1400. I will be posting live updates every hour and possibly streaming it live. Keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram links (@polarpreet)
The aim is to get as many people involved as possible!
How to join in:
Complete step ups in your own home for as long as you want and record it (time lapse or a short video)
