Another Day Bites The Dust


Day 3 of Boot Camp is complete.  Despite my plus-8 hours of sleep last night (I went to bed around 8:30 pm) I’ve been yawning a lot today.  And my body hurts, but hurt means I’m doing something right with my workouts.  Right?  I honestly am feeling some aches that I have not felt since November 2011 after the Philly marathon.  Incredible and that was after nearly four hours of straight running.  Then again this is after three hours of boot camp, so I guess one could say comparable.  My abs are the sorest from yesterday, with the stiffness in my legs growing too.   We did a lot of running, squats, lunges, stairs, “Mike Tysons” (essentially a four lunge sequence moving quickly in one spot, where do they come up with these names?), etc.  Can you feel the burn?

My brain appears to have mentally checked out around 3:30 pm.  I thought workouts were supposed to give one more energy?!  I think it’s just going to take a little bit of time for my internal clock to adjust to this new schedule.  Then again, Saturday morning and sleeping-in can’t come soon enough.

But don’t let my complaining scare you!  It’s actually a lot of fun once you are out there and the people I’ve met so far are all really nice and encouraging.  So on that note, tomorrow morning is Bring a Buddy Day.  Is anyone interested in joining me?

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
