Boot camp was awesome this morning! Our instructor had some tough workouts planned and he definitely kept the class going, and kept us challenged.
What was so awesome about it is that I could feel the difference in myself and what I was able to do and what I was able to push myself to do, it is honestly my first experience with that in boot camp. The way it generally works is that the class is given a series of moves/segments to do, it could be upper body, cardio, power cardio, lower body, etc. The class is 60-minutes and it is an hour of working hard. My first few classes I would do all of the required moves but maybe not for the whole count, or I would modify something I thought I could not do, push ups for example or even jumping jacks, or God forbid Burpees!
Today I made myself do several of these moves longer and harder than before. I did not stop myself when I felt like I was too challenged or it would be too hard. At the end it was an amazing feeling! I still have a long way to go, but knowing that I am actually progressing was a great feeling, makes me want more :).
Tomorrow is an easy day, some beginner yoga at home (secretly hoping beginner yoga means lying on the floor and stretching).
