First day of bootcamp today! Yay! I have been such a lazy loaf lately, I am very excited that bootcamp is happening just precisely when I need it most. So, yes, you all can look forward to me gushing about the terrible things I do outside all summer long, shouldn’t you come too? Today we were out in the cold, windy rain, which was pretty nice when things started heating up. It got a little ridiculous when the wind started knocking over all the cones as we were running through them, though. Usually there’s a penalty for knocking over cones, but about 75% of the time it was the wind, make the damn wind do pushups. Running around in the mud was entertaining; I came pretty close to one faceplant. I was more worried about getting unfortunately intimate with a cone, really. Then there was crawling in the mud, with my old nemesis, the inchworm (this video doesn’t have the 1-5 pushups we enjoyed). And then a bunch of other stuff. I’m not here to explain every single thing, I’m just here to say it was super-fun and awesome and I loved it and missed it so much! And my hands were basically numb by the end because holy crap it is cold today. Why, June, why are you doing this to me?
Went out to a birthday bar thing with a bunch of people I haven’t seen in ages/ever last night. I was determined to a) not get drunk, because hungover bootcamp sucks, and b) eat something ridiculous, because fat bootcamp is completely acceptable. As such, I wound up with a hamburger with, like, everything on it and then some, including onion rings. This is a meal that you can enter a bootcamp with, head held high, stomach heavy.
Kickboxing last night! We practiced how not to get kicked in the head/what to do when kicked in the head. This involved a lot of spinning on the kicker’s part, which is always super awkward. It was a good opportunity to rehearse that awesome spinning backfist with which I am passingly acquainted, because that is the thing you can generally do when spinning anyway. Also, and more importantly, there was a toddler sitting in on the class who was acting out the moves as we were doing them, and it was the cutest thing in the world.
