    Today I revisited Epic Dash. I decided to do 10 seconds of the two segments of burpees and the push-ups segment instead of 20 seconds as I did last time. It was the right decision as I managed to do eight sets even though the temperature was 28 degrees Celsius and the sun shone from a cloudless sky. The heat stress was immense.


    Warm-up
    Vitality Day 19 lv III (no rest between sets)


    Cardio
    60 days of Cardio Day 4 lv III (no rest between sets)


    Workout of the Day (WOD)
    Epic Dash lv III (modified) with ec (rest <45 seconds between sets)

    Basic burpees were substituted with burpees.

    I did eight sets in total and 3 burpees in each burpees segment and 10 push-ups in the push-ups segment. I did 2 burpees after the last set to get an even number.


    Challenges
    Legs of Steel Challenge Day 6


    The Impossible Abs Challenge Day 6

    Back & shoulders Challenge Day 6

    I combined the Abs Challenge and the Back and Shoulders Challenge.


    Total push-ups 2020: 16.866

    Total pull-ups 2020: 313

    Total Indoor Rowing: 135.597m

    Walking to Mordor: 2.286,9 km

    As usual, I did my training session outside in a sunny spot. It was 28 Celsius which made the Overdrive workout a sizzling hot affair. Heat-stress increased the intensity of the exercise. The heat pushed me to my limit, so I had to take a 5-minute break in the shade after I had finished the Overdrive workout.

    My daughters and I went to Tivoli after I finished work. We had an enjoyable afternoon and great fun. I settled for the Zen workout in the evening.

    So, basically, some people asked you to temporarily quit your job and pretend you were doing mine?

    My first day at work did not turn out as I had imagined.

    After an hour and a half at work, I was asked by a film crew if I would mind being an extra in a short film, which they were filming.

    They lacked an extra in a scene that they were just about to shoot.

    Who does not want to be discovered for the movies? So, of course, I said yes.

    I played a teacher who attended a meeting with the principal and three other teachers. The meeting was interrupted by a pupil.

    I've never been on a movie set before, and it was a great experience.

    Today was the last holiday in our summerhouse. Most of the day was, therefore, spent finishing the remaining garden projects, packing and cleaning the house. Luckily we had time for a swim in the afternoon.

    Tomorrow is my last holiday, and I start work Monday.
