I must have lost my mind!

For those who already know me and think I am crazy....your right! This morning I went to boot camp. Yes I decided I need to shed some body fat and gain muscle so I have joined a boot camp. Those people are crazy. It is two days a week (there is rumor maybe 3 days), starts at 5:30 a.m. til 6:30 a.m. We start off with a nice stretch then we run a mile. This crazy man, Michael Broadway wants this mile ran in 10 minutes......Has he lost his mind! It is 5:30 in the stinking morning, the morning after hill repeats! I can barely lift my legs never the less run a mile in less than 10 min. I am proud of myself 8:41!!!! YEAH... The motivation is the skinny women thinking they will out run the marathon trainee! Yeah think again! I saw a shirt last night, "My fast is faster than your fast"! I want it! The bad part of this boot camp, it is sandwiched in between Biscuitville and Carter Brothers (best gravy biscuit in all of High Point)! Right now I am starving and I want to eat two gravy biscuits! Oh well the price we pay to be thinner and faster..... I better be lightening quick after this crap is all over!

For anyone interested in joining me, we have 8 weeks left. Michael was a trainer at Gold's Gym and I watched him take some seriously out of shape folks into what I would call miracles! Now he has a personal training studio all his own. However nice and good at what he does, I think something went seriously wrong in his childhood for him to enjoy the punishment we get at this boot camp. But I think somewhere there was a promise of transformation of the body if you would follow the plan. Rebel that I am, I am going to TRY!

Happy Wednesday!

Last night at hills I was thinking, "Poor me--I have to do a trail run tomorrow." Please--that's nothing compared to your boot camp. I thought of you when I was sweating on the trail this morning: "Amy's out there doing suicides, an hour earlier than me. Suck it up!" You're inspiring!

My dear Amy, you have inspired me!! I use to only be able to run from the couch to the fridge and back but thanks to you, I can now make it all the way to the mailbox. My goal for this week is to make it from the mailbox back to the house. Keep up the great work! You rock!

Amy, I'm so proud of you! You're going to do great. Bootcamp will definitely whip your butt into shape. I've done 3 at the Y with you know who. Keep up the good work and I'll be checking in with you!! Love you!

A million thank-yous for brightening my day with your humor! I'm right there with ya girl...I hate hills too! Last night was my induction into that phase of this training. All I could think about going up the hill was that we all paid good money for this torture??? Then I ran out of breath and had to focus on remaining conscious...and making sure I didn't collapse in the way of the speed demons who were lapping me! Thanks for making the post-run exercises so entertaining for us...and writing this blog so we can share your experience!
