Boot Camp On Crack

Friday, May 02, 2014

Hi, there, regular readers! As you know by now, Tom is insane! I regularly regale you with his insane workout plans, but somehow I manage to muddle through them. Usually last to finish, but I feel like a badass when it's over and that's all that matters right?

Today, Tom was feeling a particularly heinous shade of evil. It was kind of like normal, except in between sets instead of resting, we were running! Alllllllllll over the warehouse complex. Run around a building, stop and do an exercise or two.

We were full of jokes though. As we rounded a corner and uphill (because that makes it better) toward the street, one guy yelled, "We better be running to Chik-Fil-A!" Later, as we did walking lunges along the ENTIRE side of a not-small building, Tom asked if we were feeling it yet. Someone yelled, "All I feel is hatred, Tom!"

Usually I'm the one telling him I hate him and otherwise bitching, but today I was too busy trying not to throw up. Seriously, this is the closest I've ever come to that feeling. I didn't, and on the last lap I cheated and totally walked, but I pretty much HAD to at that point. I was just.done.

Then we went inside, so apparently we weren't done yet. The roman chairs (www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fbr9
sgbo50) were bad enough but the plank jacks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?
v=PR9nHQXCZMo) were just terrible after all that running!

Still, when it was over, I did indeed feel like a badass again.

I go from boot camp to the gym to do more stretches and shower, so the guy at the front desk sees me come in all sweaty every day. This morning I walked in and he took one look at me, completely covered in sweat, and said, "must've been a doozy today." Understatement!

    The guy who led boot camp at my last school used to yell "RUNNING IS RESTING" at his bootcampers as they hobbled by. Sounds kinda like your guy.
