Bootcamp Season #2 Sessions 8&9

Wednesday What I gained in those 2 days off this week I expended in energy at boot camp on Wednesday and Thursday!  Those two days were no joke.  But I was determined. I went to bed late but was determined to get at least 6 hours of sleep.  Did not happen.   I got up anyway.  My regular partner in crime stayed in bed and skipped this ...

Bootcamp Season #2 Session 7

Hi everybody!!!  I hope everyone had a productive and ACTIVE weekend!  I know I did.  I actually did the online workout prescribed by the SOF boot camp and did pretty good.  It included 10, 10M sprints which I did on the treadmill at 9 mph.  Clearly I need to amp that up to 10 mph because my sprints this morning were still short.  But I am ...

Bootcamp Season #2 Session 2

I showed back up for day 2 of bootcamp today.  It was a bit rough for me.  For one I got out of bed around 5:10 am.  Bootcamp starts at 5:30 am SHARP and I am 10 minutes away.  I did not get a full night's sleep because every now and again I get stomach pains which wake me up in the middle of the night and make it difficult to return back to ...
