4 Miles of Fun! Or Pain. Whatever.

Monday, October 24, 2016

Yesterday, I did the Go Time Fitness Challenge. It's about a 4 mile course with (apparently, I didn't count) 25 fitness stations along the way. I knew the run would be OK. I also knew the stations would be OK as they're all things we do in boot camp. There's no way I could remember all 25, but some of them were:

squat jumps
crab walk
sand bag carry (25 lbs)
leap frogs
bag drag (25 lbs)
balance beam
chin ups (couldn't do it!)
parallel bar walk on hands (couldn't do that either)
bear crawls
duck walks
jug carry
box jumps
chair dips
decline push-ups
tire flips

That's most of them, actually. After the race, my back started tightening up. Today, MAN IT HURTS. I went to class this morning to see if moving would help loosen it up. I also took 3 ibuprofen so perhaps the combo helped, but OMG I AM SO SORE. I suspect it was the tire flips. It was the very last obstacle and after running 4 miles and doing 24 other stations I suspect my form sucked and I used my back more than my legs and now everything hurts.

I'm considering visiting a chiropractor for the first time. A friend of mine recommended one and it seems like it might be worth a shot. I am a bit skeptical of chiropractors in general but maybe with all this crazy exercise I do it could help. Opinions welcome!

In the meantime, I'll leave you with a few pictures from before everything started to hurt. :)

Boot Campers

Potentially the scene of the crime:

    Great job with the challenge!! If you are skeptical of chiropractors, try a deep tissue massage instead. I love massage, but chiropractors freak me out. No reason that they do, they just do.
