Lean Mean Killing Machine? Getting there!

Okay, so I had my first session of Action Boot Camp last night and it was intense! I now know I'm really unfit.
We did an hour of training in the park starting with jogging on the spot, to jumping in the air, jumping jacks, press-ups (over 100), sit-ups (again, over 100) and then on for a jog to the next location. To be honest all the rest is a bit of a painful blur. But the session included hill running, burpees, tricep dips and a 2km run - part of which was up the a massive hill. It was at this point I didn't think I was going to recover. I'd fully abandoned the notion of jogging up the hill, and was slowly walking up, but my breathing was so heavy - I thought I was going to have a heart attack or something! I mean this is really the first constructive exercise I've done since I was 15 years-old! (19 years ago - NOOOO! Getting old).
So, I'm on my way to getting a bit fitter. Hopefully the next session tomorrow will be a little easier! But I will have to persist because there's no way I'm gonna be zombie fodder! And I will be a lean mean killing machine for sure! I know how Linda Hamilton felt now between Terminator 1 and Terminator 2! This is my Hamilton journey!

  1. Good luck! I've heard that burpees are meant to be very good but I have no idea what they are :P My zombie fitness regime is going pretty slow - at the moment I'm just hitting the treadmill, though I hope that now I'm past week 4, I can get serious and start pushing myself a bit more.

  2. Boot camp isn't for beginners - I should know it's killing me! I hope tonight's session is a little easier! All the muscles around my chest and ribs are killing - it hurts to breath! Let's hope this one loosens me up a bit! Keep on with your regime!
