Bootcamp Day #4

Ok, so I almost didn't post because I think the "newness" of this is wearing off and I don't want to bore. But, I will go ahead for today.

Today we got to sleep in! Yahoo(as Josh would say)! I didn't have to get up until 4:50 this morning. Did you know that there is actually life out on the road at 5am? Who knew?! Anyway, I am sure it is all mental, but to me 5:15 am is a whole lot better than 4:45.

We met at Marek track. This is a 1/2 mile winding path that has a bit of an incline in some parts of it. The trainers had 4 stations set up along the path. We were to go around the track 4 times and everytime we reached a "station" we had to do whatever instruction was listed. For instance, 25 push-ups, 25 crunches, jumping squats, planking etc. Also, between each station we had to do something different like sprint, lunge, high-knee skip, side step jog etc to the next station. It was tough. I made it around 3x I think or maybe just 2.5x, it is all a blur after that. I was gasping for air and trying not to fall on my face with my wobbly legs. Once we were done, we did 40 dips at the picnic tables.

I really love the support this bootcamp gives! I am the last one around the track, which I really dislike (we don't use the word "hate" in this house) but I am hanging in there. Maybe, the next bootcamp I will not be the last one. WAIT?! Did I just say that? The NEXT BOOTCAMP?!?! What am I thinking?!

Ok, off to drag myself to the shower. I think it is just big enough to lay down on the floor and sleep in there. Zzzzzzz.

Hi Cathryn!
Just stopped by and !VOILA! You posted! :)
I'm glad you posted about the workout. Not only is it interesting to know what they do during the bootcamp, but to hear a reflection about how you're doing.
The fall bootcamp sounds very intriguing. :)
Thank you for the girls night on Saturday - I really enjoyed it!

That is an impressive workout! Keep it up.'s a very good sign that you are already thinking of the next one. The hardest part is why stop once you get going?

I agree with Tacie.
Keep going-you'll start to see results in as little as a few weeks.
Keep us posted. It's so exciting!
