Bootcamp - Day 1

Last night was the first night of Operation Bootcamp There were 18 of us [lucky/unlucky] souls there. It started off with a bunch of jumping jacks and then stretching to warm up for our first night PT test.

Here’s how I fared:

1 mile run: 8 minutes
1-minute triceps extensions: 50 straight legged, 5 with bent knees
1-minute sit-ups: 40
1-minute push-ups: 25 straight legs, 25 on knees

I thought it all went pretty well and I had a cute girl partner up with me after we ran. Walking out to my car I thought, “Ok, not bad!”

Then, I couldn’t get out of bed this morning! (Getting out of bed is going to be hell, from now on!)

A conversation with my body ensued:

My arms were likeDUDE! What the hell did you DO to us?”

Legs:Creak, creak, creak”

My body:This is bullshit! We’re going on strike!”

Me:Pull it together, gang! SHEESH!”

1 day down/29 to go

Hopefully, my abs will look like this (again – yes, this is me) by the end:

If you don't mind, I'll take your once before, and once again..after for my own inspiration. I have a larger target and time frame..but hmm..yeah, I like your expected final results.

Much luck!
