Boot Camp Day 1: Complete

Day 1 of boot camp is done.

I'm pretty spent, but I actually feel really good at the same time. The camaraderie of being in a group setting definitely motivates me, especially being 1 of 2 girls in a group of 20. It's very motivating to keep up with the boys... and I think I did a decent job on the first day.

Day 1 was an assessment workout - to see where we are at the beginning:

1/4 mi lap around the park – my time: 2:19 min
1 minute of push-ups – my count: 10 regular push-ups, 19 knee push-ups
1 minute of crunches – my count: 45 crunches
1 minute of shuffling back and forth (basketball style) between two cones – 23 reps


3 minutes of pushing a balance ball across the field. Holy heck that was hard!!
3 minutes of running in a square around cones. forward, sideways, backwards, sideways. It sounds easy, but it was rough.
3 minutes of running while someone pulls you in the other direction with a rope around your waist.

then, a warm down of stretching and basic yoga.

As I said before, I am spent... but somehow my energy is slowly regaining.

I feel good, and I like that.

Day 1: Successful.
