Tomorrow is Anzac day which is a national day of remembrance in New Zealand and Australia.
Originally we honored the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I.
These days we remember all those who died and served in military operations for their countries.
Anzac day is not only a day of remembrance it is also a national holiday which also means that the arena is closed. But never fear Ludians are a resourceful bunch of people – think of us as hard core boy scouts (or girl scout in my case).
Joe set up a workout for those of us who couldn’t fathom taking an entire day off. I decided that I would do the workout at the Trust Stadium and I put out an open invitation for anyone who wanted to come along and join me.
Bear Crawl anyone??
So a group of hardy souls “signed up” and we settled on a time and place (9am Anzac Day – Trust Stadium, Henderson, Auckland) to knock out the 500.
HOWEVER obviously because this is my world, nothing is as simple as it seems.
My friend Anna issued a challenge of sorts ..
When I talked to James about the burpee mile he shook his head and gave me “that look”. I hate “that look” when I see “that look” I know that means I have to prove myself because he thinks I can’t do it.
Although in fairness this time he could actually be right … *sigh*
Anna’s orginal plan was to attempt the burpee mile AFTER doing the 500 – I have however talked her into splitting our group into two.
So we will all warm up together – a simple 10-1 should do that quite adequately and then we will split the group into those who want to do the 500 and those idiots amongst us who want to die for our country on Anzac Day.
Either way Anzac Day will always be a day I remember!
Till next time
