Back in May I was talked in to buying a Living Social deal for a month of unlimited bootcamp by some friends who I'm running the Tough Mudder with. I love the idea of the bootcamp as we all need to work on our upper body strength, but it starts at 5:45 am.
So I've been getting up at 5 am the last few weeks and either 1. throwing on clothes and catching the 5:11 bus or 2. getting dressed and catching a 5:20 ride from a friend.
The bootcamp is at Carter Barron an area in the Rock Creek Park, when we arrive around 5:30 the sun is still on its way up.
Everyone brings a mat, dumbbells, and water (I also bring a towel, because I'm a sweatasaurus).
Then as the sun rises we start to the tune of "Ah One, Two, Three (ONE) Ah One, Two, Three (TWO), Ah One, Two, Three (THREE)"
Mondays and Fridays are lower body & core, Tuesdays and Thursdays are upper body & core, and Wednesday is cardio. Its been a good workout and after two weeks I can tell my arms are a lot stronger. Today I picked up some 8 lb dumbbells, lets see if I'm courageous enough to take them to class tomorrow.
I have two more weeks left and even though I love the class, I'm not sure I can sign on for unlimited 5 am wake up calls.
