Wardrobe malfunction

Had enough sitting around resting the ligament after the weekend so popped out and did a little 10k with obstacle simulation. Basically, every km you stop and do an exercise to simulate an obstacle. It goes a little something like this:

Obstacle 1 – Deep Mud - Walking lunges Reps: 15

Obstacle 2 – Barbed Wire Crawl - Push Ups Reps: 15

Obstacle 3 – Pulley - Situp Twists Reps: 15

Obstacle 4 – A Frame - Walkouts Reps: 15

Obstacle 5 – Burpee Penalty - Burpees Reps: 15

Obstacle 6 – Deep Mud - Bodyweight Squats Reps: 15

Obstacle 7 – Hills - Mountain Climbers Reps: 15

Obstacle 8 – Muddy Ditches - Long Jumps Reps: 15

Obstacle 9 – Cargo Net - Spiderman Push Ups Reps: 15

Obstacle 10 – Celebration - Star Jumps Reps: 15

All went well until km 5, when my shorts split right the way up the back seam while doing the burpees, to the immense amusement of my son, who was along to document the event on camera, and then proceeded to tell everyone we passed for the remainder of the run.
