I have just returned from the second boot camp session. Well, for me anyway.
I was supposed to go on Friday but, since I still had difficulty walking upstairs I felt it wise to leave it another day or so before punishing myself again.
That extra day or so made all the difference. This morning I woke up early, pulled on my gear and drove up the road for the hour of training
The trainer had a word with me about pacing myself and gave me some low impact exercises to do while the others were doing star jumps and BURPEES
I didn’t know what burpees were before this, I thought they were just the result of eating your dinner too fast!
As it turns out, they are hideous exercises but, like I said, he told me to leave those for today.
I managed to last the whole hour, working at my own pace, today. I feel very pleased with myself!
The best thing though, is that now, an hour later, I actually feel GREAT!
I can feel I’ve done some exercise but I feel energised, not ill, like I did on Thursday!
I think I’ve cracked it!

OK. I’m googling burpees as soon as I leave this post.
Don’t. It will scare you…
Good for you!
Thank you! I’m really rather proud of myself at the moment!!
