Getting My Fitness On

January 12, 2010 at 4:15 pm 2 comments

Last week I was contacted via Facebook by a good friend from High School that I used to swim with. He informed me that his cousin runs Camp Gladiator here in Austin and that I should come out and give them a shot. For those of you not in the know Camp Gladiator is a boot camp (something huge here in Austin) where a group of people gather in a parking lot, park, soccer fields, etc before or after work and do a wide range of running drills, ab work, jump rope, weight training, basically any form of conditioning that will kick yo ass into shape. Oh, and did I mention that Ally (owner of Camp Gladiator) won American Gladiator in 2008…no?

I went last night with a group of co-workers and friends to my first camp at a close by grouping of sports fields. I definitely used muscles that I hadn’t used since high school and came home with freezing hands and sore muscles. A hot bath and a couple of Tylenol seemed to do the trick as I wasn’t completely immobile this morning.

I’m pairing these boot camp work outs with my swimming of course. Schedule goes as follows:

Monday: swim 5:30 am (2.5ish miles) boot camp at 6:10 pm
Tuesday: long walk with hubs and Saci and AMERICAN IDOL BABY :-)
Wednesday: same as Monday
Thursday: work out at office gym on lunch break for 45 min.
Friday: swim 5:30 am (2.5ish miles)
Saturday: Jazzercise with mom at 9:30 am
Sunday: work out at Cedar Park rec center for 1 hr.

The above has definitely been the most I’ve worked out since high school. Don’t know how long it will last or why I’m on this sudden kick…but it feels good!
