Someone else read my PSA signed up for the DKMS bone marrow registry! We're increasing the chances of saving lives, people, and that is awesome. Go you guys.
haha, that arrow is totally not going to work well when this post isn't at the top of the page...
Anyway! I started taking this class at the Y last week - it's Boot Camp. And it kicks my ass. And it is awesome.
The first class we split up into teams and did relay race style drills across the gym. First we'd sprint, then we'd sprint with a jump rope, then we'd have to plank-walk through our teammates' legs all the way across the gym, high-knees, sprinting... back and forth, back and forth, over. and. over. It was an ass-kicker.
This morning was even more awesome. The drill sergeant lady (who, based on my disturbing dreams this morning, I'm more than a little bit afraid of) set up a bunch of stair steppers in two rows in the gym, probably fifteen steps to a row. She divided us into two groups, and one group did an exercise with the steppers (pushups, dips, incline pushups, high knees, agility, bear-walking) while the other group did something equally as punishing around the gym (sprinting, skipping (harder than you think!), shuffles, side-steps, running backwards).
At the end of the workout, people were moaning and you could even catch Ms. Badass Instructor grunting into her microphone as she finished out her sets of pushups. I know I'll be sore tomorrow, but the worst part is my HANDS! From crawling on those damn steppers, my palms are raw.
