Last night at 6pm I had a date......with bootcamp.
It was part of my gym's Midwinter Makeover Challenge. They challenged us. Could you handle a one hour bootcamp session? Would you show up and give it a go?
Thank goodness I was partnered with Kazz - one of the gym's superfit instructors who practically dragged me along at times.
PT drills, dozens of push ups (full body ones!), running up hill, and down, and up again. Team drills. Carrying, piggybacking, dragging your team mates. Leap frogging, rolling. sit ups. Running attached to teammates. You name it we did it. In the wet. And then we had to run back to the gym in pairs. Taking turns to carry a 5 kg medicine ball above our heads. We all had to hold our hands above our heads at all times. If you were caught dropping your hands then you and your partner had to drop and do 5 push ups. Everyone got caught out. We got caught near the end - outside the gym. By the pedestrian crossing. We had to do pressups while cars waited for us to cross! We were so stuffed it didn't matter.
Did we care? Nup. Our team got back to the gym first.
We survived bootcamp.
