Personal Health Care
Last night I did some full immersion reporting (ok, I just wanted to get some exercise) and tried my first boot camp work out. I know I’m a little behind on this fad (it was probably cool a few years ago) but I had a great time.
Basically, an instructor pushes you harder than you’d ever push yourself by running you through a series of sprints, stair climbs, push ups, squats, ab exercises, and weight routines for about an hour. Oh, and your “breaks” are brief runs through the woods.
The runs were actually my favorite part. We met outside in Cranston and I was surprised by all of the wooded trails over there. It reminded me of when I ran cross country in Portland, Oregon. Many of our high school work outs crossed through the dirt trails in Forest Park.
BUT- the work out left me totally useless today. I am slightly sore everywhere. I guess that means I have to go back and build up my strength.
