Hundreds of Sit-Ups


At the end of boot camp this morning our instructor told us that we did approximately 600 sit-up-like exercises to work the abs! Who is ready for that trip to the islands?!

Let’s just say we did a LOT of abdominal work (full sit-ups, flutter kicks, mountain climbers and a whole lot of other things I cannot remember the names of).  I’m not so sure having a twilight view of the Jefferson monument necessarily helped the situation during one three round cycle of 30 repetitions for two exercises, but now that those exercises are done (even with the slight reprieve for some of us slower folks) I can appreciate the instructor’s view. “It’s all about what you tell your mind.” Basically the body will respond if the mind is syncing up.

Some teamwork at the end, involving scaling the side of a bridge underpass, also put to action what teamwork can do. Overall, a chilly wet morning but worth it in the end.

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...
