Bootcamp pt1

The morning was moist…no this is not another Throw Mama from the Train story, this is one of a total different caliber. This one begins a week ago where I paid money to join a month long class named Bootcamp. My thinking was that this was the class I would need to help give me the extra boost to kickn my workouts into a higher gear. My goals included increased stamina, better circulation, overall better feeling, possible weight loss, and fun. Did I say fun?!? Sorry, I am getting ahead of myself.

We met at a building at Washington Park. The sun had not risen…of course it wasn’t in the sky yet, the class starts at 6am! Anyway, I digress…we started off with 30 jumping jacks and moved into some light stretching. We did a warm-up jog/run around the little lake which is approximately 1 mile, then jumped right into the work-out….

I don’t really remember the order in which we did the exercises, after a couple of them it all became a blur. Squats, walking lunges, push-ups, step-ups, jumping side to side, jumping back and forward, plie squats, running, donkey kicks, and some more that I can’t recall at this moment.

I had a funneh thought as I was doing the last run, I actually paid someone to inflict this pain on me? Oh well, as Matt always tells me “You’re a crazy masochistic person!” I guess I will stretch out today and get ready for my next session on Wednesday.

PS Keep the donations for the Susan G Komen run coming in…thanks so much!!

Sounds almost like a job. Good job, as it were. Good job! It's way more than I would could do... by a long shot. I can't even wake up that early let alone do the stuff you were doing. Sheesh! Good jorb!

I can't believe you are doing this. I am hurting for you, and I am very proud of you for doing the work. It will pay off big time. I'm too much of a wimp. Keep going, I am right behind you, far back, but right behind you! Love ya Mom
