Power Boot Camp?
This summer I read about Pure Power Boot Camp. Hmmm. Sounds interesting. Sort of break up my work out routine? I am a goal oriented person, maybe this would be a cool thing. I call. The woman who runs the place is intense. She got me so psyched, I signed up. I couldn’t begin, due to the availability until mid-October. No problem. What was I thinking?
Today I began boot camp. Yikes. I began with 5 other people who just started. They hand you a pair of army fatigues and a t-shirt and before you change, you must drop and do 5 push-ups. I’m paying for this mind you. Then the day begins.
This is a one hour deal. Intense for one hour. Push-ups, sit-ups, up 12 flights of stairs, down 12 flights of stairs, an obstacle course, more stairs, group sit-ups, pull-ups. Ok, I’m physically exhausted and my body is shaking. As I was attempting to climb over the wall, I felt like the girl in the movie Officer and a Gentlemen who just couldn’t get there. The group helped her but someone she couldn’t make it. Getting over that wall is tough. Mind you, I was definitely the oldest person there too. Youth definitely helps.
So, tomorrow I go back. I am doing this for 8 weeks, 3 times a day. Let’s see. I’ll keep you posted, that is is if my fingers can actually type by the time I’m through.
