Oh My Quads

Soooo yesterdays BootCamp class. Yup. It was fun. It was cardio centric-which excited me cause I'm much stronger in that dept right now. Get excited, here was our workout. (done at a track...with bleachers)

Warm up of .75 mile, slow jog.
The following stations going around the track for a repeat of 3 times
100 meters high butt kicks
200+ meters of forward lunges (it doesn't sound that far...but oh. my. it really really is), 2nd time around backward lunges
100 meter sprint
50 jumping jacks
100 meter sprint
jumping jacks until every one has finished

Oh I was burning just by THAT point. Then we headed up to the bleachers. Say it with me now with a twinge of dread: the bleeeeachers. She had us run up and down a section, back out to the track, do 5 explosions (you crouch all the way down, jump up with arms and hands extended) and then sprint 100 meters out, 100 meters back and back up the bleacher steps. Three times.
By the last time my legs were so jelly-licious that my sprint was pathetic. I truly felt like I was running on two sticks of butter through a forest of gummi bears. Sigh.


We did 100 bicep curls, 30 bicep rotations, an awesomely excruciating ab workout (planks for 60 seconds amidst other grueling things), some push ups and then we all laid on our mats and wanted to die.

Good time, girls, good time. I'm telling you --this type of working out is really starting to get addictive. Only downside... this morning my abs, butt, quads, and hams are on FIRE. I woke up feeling like I'd been run over by a truck. But it's a good pain, one I'm glad I have.

Wow is all I have to say about that. Just reading it makes me tired. Then again, I just started working out again and I am so incredibly sore from doing like 20 push ups. Gotta love starting pretty much back at square one again. LOL.

I'm pretty sure the best part about that post is the word jelly-licious. Yup. Just made my day.
