there is a gym in the building i work in, and this year, they decided to have an olympics of sorts. there are eight events, and each team consists of four people. for some reason, i joined and said i would do the plank and wall sit events. i did the plank last week (5 minutes 11 seconds), and then wasn't set to do the wall sit until the end of the month.
on friday morning, i got a text from my coworker who was set to do the lunges, and she asked if we could trade because she hurt her knee. i agreed, but didn't make any promises.
so that morning, i went down to the gym, where i found out that only one other person had participated so far. she had done 106 full lunges, so that was the number to beat. i started off strong, and was being extra stubborn. they were full knee to the ground lunges, which i rarely do, but i had it in my head that i would go until i fell down, or something equally as embarrassing.
i got to 330 and my form was starting to fade. so i decided that i would just get to 350, and i'd allow myself to quit. and i did it...and then i quite literally couldn't walk. luckily the gym manager left the room, because my walk back to the locker room looked something like this.
