The Boot Camp Diaries, Day 10 (aka The Beginning of the End)

I can't believe this is the last week of boot camp. Although I normally go on Mondays, I was still at the beach so I went on Tuesday instead. It didn't take long before I was feeling the effects of taking it easy over the weekend.

We incorporated a jump rope into some of our exercises. I can't remember the last time I used an actual jump rope, and my lack of practice showed as I struggled to keep it going. Thankfully I wasn't the only one who was having a hard time today.

We also partnered up and did some exercises where one would run across the tennis court with a band around their waist while the partner tried to rein them in. I felt like I was at football practice but was actually stronger than I thought I would be.

I'm a bit nervous about going to boot camp two days in a row. Hopefully my body will hold out tomorrow. I think it will still be a while before I'm ready to go five days a week instead of my usual three.

I considered a boot camp here but after reading your diary, I've decided that I'm not committed enough for that right now.

You have not seen funny until you've seen me with a jump rope! I CAN NOT JUMP.

I don't want my diary to dissuade anyone from trying boot camp--it is TOUGH, but it's also been very rewarding for me in more ways than one. I realize not everyone has the time or ability (or desire) to do it, but if you ever get the opportunity I say go for it--jump rope be damned! :)
