Marine Core Bootcamp.....Week 1.
Saturday, November 30, 2013
I am trying to loose weight, a lot of it as it goes and have now made a stand and found something that does not require posing in front of the mirror, (not happened in a long time), Jumping around like a headless chicken in a confined space, (with 20-30 other people who are much more fit and lighter than i am), whilst looking horrificly onto the mirror covered wall at myself wobbling, gyrating, performing whilst trying to keep in time with the music and what the teacher is shouting out "to do". It's just not me.
This Boot camp i have on Monday and Thursday evening is all done outdoors wither it's raining or not and run by an Ex Marine guy, whom i have been told just loves the Newbies because they are so out of shape. I shall become a recruit and at the mercy of the Marine core instructor who will no doubt push me to the mas. I have to say i am looking forward to it, a wee tad scared but that's good, fear is what can drive you. “Don’t fear failure. Not failure, but low aim, is the crime. In great attempts it is glorious even to fail.”
I hope i do myself justice on Monday evening, i also hope to make an impression because they also do a Competition Assault Course every 8 weeks which is something i shall be aiming for. Can you imagine winning a Marine made Assault course for your leisure centre never mind yourself.
Well this wee GI SheWolf shall keep you Howlin' with any updates.
