- Iâ€™ve always wanted to do a real-life boot camp but itâ€™s so expensive. (Terrieha, who is based out of Auburn, does $5 drop-in boot camp classes. How awesome is that?)
- I know I need to work on my strength but I really hate the gym (nor am I willing to buy a membership). Running is great; however, itâ€™s not the end-all-be-all.
- Boot camps have always appealed to me because you can do them OUTSIDE. Fun!
Today was Day 1 of Terriehaâ€™s Boot Camp, and although we were stuck at the YMCA (I had a free pass!) due to pouring rain, I had a good timeâ€¦ until that boot camp crushed my soul, flipped it upside-down, and showed me that Iâ€™m not in that great of shape despite MANY miles of running every week. Funny how fitness does not translate to other sports very well.
Terriehaâ€™s Boot Camp is four circuits long (counting abs) and included about 20 different moves. You do everything in a quick rotation, and I was DRIPPING in sweat just ten minutes in. I struggled to do 75% of the moves! Boot Camp is HARD.
(Whining to the Husband during abs – â€œHeeeeelppppp meeeeeeeeeâ€¦â€)
Nicole also suffered through but I think she found it easier because she regularly strength trains and does yoga more than I do. And sheâ€™s a baller. Obviously.
The whole thing will probably take us 45 minutes once we really know all the moves.
Terrieha has a great YouTube channel with descriptions of each move, so we would learn all the moves for a circuit, do the circuit, and take a 2 â€“ 3 minute break to learn the moves for the next circuit. Gotta love technology. Hereâ€™s the complete workout.

Pre-workout, I ate a banana:
Afterwards, some shredded wheat and almond milk:
And a very late lunch was a vegan pot pie and a side salad.
I was surprised how much I liked the pot pie! It was really good. I was afraid it would be bland, but it had a lot of spice and salt. I would definitely buy this again for a quick meal.
Off to stretch my sore muscles!
PS â€“ We leave for the Dominican Republic in 68 days. Weâ€™re going with my BFF Sarah and her husband. Weâ€™ve been saving and planning for this for nearly half a year, and I am SO freaking excited.
I checked â€“ the hotel has WIFI. 😉
