Boot Camp Progress
Last night (wednesday) marked the last night of Camp Gladiator session 8. Which means I’ve completed two months so far and really feel great about it.
I’ve met a lot of new people in the process and love the results I’m seeing. Everything is tightening up a bit here and there and I know it’s making a difference in my overall health. My resting heart rate has slowed from the low 80s to the low 70s and my blood pressure has even gone down a bit. This isn’t to say that my pulse and blood pressure before I started were high by any means, they were both in the normal to good range.
Last night was our assessment for session 8. At the very beginning we ran about .8 of a mile, was given a minute to do as many push ups as we can, same for sit ups, and then did a pyramid of sorts of 10 different conditioning exercises.
A month ago when I ran the .8 of a mile I went 7.17 and last night I went 6.42. It definitely felt a lot harder last night than before because I was really pushing myself. And it paid off, I dropped 35 seconds!!!
I also did 21 military style push ups (18 the last time) and 53 sit ups (48 last time). And as for the pyramid of timed exercises…I dropped about 3 and half minutes on that…sweet!!!
I’m counting on being at session 10 that starts in a week so I’ll be working my way towards even faster times…
