I'm Going to Bootcamp!

I have seen several bloggers I read do Tina Reale's Best Body Bootcamp. At first, I will admit, that I was not interested in it at all. I didn't really get the concept and I didn't really care to find out more about it.

Then I kept seeing things about it and it finally peaked my interest. After reading several reviews where everyone raved about it; especially the flexibility, I knew it was something I had to try.

If you can tell I keep mentioning elusive strength training... but never actually doing it. I have never done any consistant form of strength training and definitely am lost when it comes to strength training on my own. So, when I saw that Round 5 of Best Body Bootcamp, which is an 8 week program, coincided with the last 8 weeks of my half marathon training I felt like it was a sign. Something to actually get me to start strength training along with my half marathon training and keep me motivated to the end of training.

So today was the first day! And I am already excited to keep going... which might change in the morning when I can't move my arms.

Due to poor scheduling on my part I did the fit test today as well as the strength workout. In general I will be doing my half marathon training runs (with possibly cutting out an easy run or two a week) instead of the recommended cardio.

I'm excited to see how improving my overall strength helps with my running because half marathon PR, I'm coming for you!

Speaking of my half marathon, I'll be back tomorrow with a Week 6 recap!


  1. Woohoo, I'm doing BBB for the first time this round too! Doing the first strength workout tomorrow!

    1. It was definitely a good workout, but I am happy that I am not sore like I thought I would be. Guess I might need to up the weights a bit!
