Boot Camp: Day 2

Another glorious morning for Boot Camp! This time there were 4 other participants, including another newbie. We did less running today, which is a pity – we only did 1 loop around the 1/2-mile track. Once the half marathon is done, I will have to keep running on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

I do feel like we did more arm work today; I was downgraded to the “red band” today so I don’t pull something before the race. Friday I’m going to use the “green band” – and Ben already told me that I shouldn’t do the step-ups and lunges on Friday so I can rest my legs a bit. In return, he promised to be extra hard on my race-tired legs on Monday. Awesome!

The ladies are pretty chatty, which I have mixed feelings about. I mean, it’s nice to have the distraction to keep the time passing quickly, but I don’t know that I focused enough on my form today.

The abs work was tough – I already felt a little sore – but I got through it. And then, happily, stretching.

Another quick drive to the gym at work, a quick shower, and I was at my desk before 7:45 again. Still very happy about Boot Camp!!!
