Back at Bootcamp
Man, it's weird...I'm in the worst shape and best shape of my life at the same time. My running is definitely the best it's ever been...but I pretty much suck at everything else! I'm definitely feeling soft and gishy so need to get back to building back some more muscle. I went to bootcamp for the first time in six weeks - combination of injury, marathon training, crazy traffic and summer hours at work kept me away so I was kinda excited to be back...plus one of my oldest friends D goes to bootcamp with me (actually, she introduced me to it). Anyways, I pretty much sucked. We were doing all sorts of exercises like burpees, jump squats and weight work and I was tired and winded in the first 10 minutes. Everything burned. It always surprises me how quickly you can lose your fitness!
