#FitnessFriday – Keep Going

#FitnessFriday Weekly Workout Recap

Disclaimer:  This post contains affiliate links.

My routine got turned on its head.  I am back in in-person boot camp with Sanders Optimum Fitness and boy what a return it was.  I can say I returned fairly strong but I realize this session is going to be a test of endurance hence the “Keep Going” theme of today’s post.

Friday

I ran with the lovely ladies of BGR! Baltimore on Friday and we hashed it out!

Saturday

Saturday’s run was awesome.  I stepped out with BGR!  Baltimore and while they had initially intended to do 8 miles, we ended up doing about 5!   Yeah I felt pretty lucky because I was nervous about those 8 miles.

Monday

Monday was first day back at boot camp and I feel I held my own.  It was by no way EASY but those sessions help you develop your will to fight through fatigue, exhaustion and the feeling of wanting to give up.  I always burn the most calories there.

Tuesday

I hit the BRICK with my girl Heather-Brooke Malone-Wolf as she took us through a series of exercises.  It was simple YET challenging.

Wednesday

You guessed it another full POWER HOUR of boot camp.  It was GOOD and I drank some FRS to give me wings.

Thursday

We go back to back Wednesday and Thursday so you can imagine, we did 15 touches, push up drills and much more.  I came REALLY close to making the 15 touches.  I did even better than I did on Monday!!  The scallops I made from Sizzlefish and smashed cauliflower must have really powered me from last night.

    Well done!! The focus on endurance is so important for long term goals! And I am think I am intimidated just by reading about all those burpees (much less doing them myself). 🙂

      I used to not care about long runs and endurance but lately it has become more and more important to me.
