I’m sad. Tomorrow is the last day of this session for boot camp. Over the past 4 weeks I feel myself getting stronger. I mean I am stronger and faster. Who knew what a difference a month could make. And guess what you guys? Because of the need to have the energy for the workouts, I stopped drinking glasses of wine during the week. That is PROGRESS for me because I have swapped out wine as a mood stabilizer to the rigors of all out exercise. What I mean by that is – we are going so hard in boot camp, I come back with the rush that takes me through good and not-so-good work days so I can endure with a good attitude and mood.
But yes, this session is coming to an end. But before it ends here are some of the improvements I made.
- I ran a mile in under 10 minutes. I shaved off over 1 minute off of my mile run from the first time I ran it back on August 6, 2012!
- We do these sprint drills where we run a certain distance back and forth 15 times in under 1 minute. I always hit 13 times. Today I hit 14.5 times! I almost made it to 15 before the minute mark!!!!
I am so proud of myself and happy that I have been able to really see results with this boot camp. It works! The next session begins in September – Wednesday, on 9/12/2012 but due to hubby’s work travel schedule I’m not sure if I will be able to attend this next session even though – I really want to. My neighbor and I are trying to figure out how to make it work because it really does bring me a lot of happiness. It is also a great outlet for frustration because you have to give 100% in everything we are tasked to do.
Lastly, we start with gospel music to accompany us on our normal 1 mile warm up and we praise the Lord before we leave. Now THAT is the perfect way to start any day!!!!
To the new acquaintances I have met – I look forward to participating with you on this journey again.
