I am getting more into the training lately. This has been a slow process. From someone who wouldn't run for a train to someone who has a self confessed addiction to boot camps, it's been an interesting 7 months. I was thinking the other day that if I wasn't trying to lose weight, that I wouldn't train. Because, I'm not going to lie, I don't like exercise. If there were no or limited health benefits to be received, I would be on the couch and NOT running around a sports field.

Umm, yes, I do.
More on boot camps below but I just wanted to mention that. I used to get excited about getting up out of bed to eat a calorie laden breakfast. Now it's to sweat profusely and smell badly on a football field.
I'm getting my training on and loving it :)
Blue haired gal: INTERSTATE SMACKDOWN!
I was moon booted up at the time and was in pain to walk let alone be allowed to run. But I had someone walking alongside me the whole time, and others came back to do the last stint with me also. I felt so supported and it was such a fun morning. And I was very relieved that the blue spray washed out of my hair!

Last week I tested running at boot camp for a couple of days. Just very light running in the soft grass. And it went ok :) I didn't push it though. Then last week I was driving over the Story Bridge one night at around 7:30pm and I noticed that there were people jogging across the bridge. I decided I wanted to do that too. I am never spontaneous. I haven't properly ran since October. It's a bridge. It's night time. I've just finished boot camp. I didn't know how to gain pedestrian access to the bridge.

Since then I've ran a bit in boot camps etc. It's not completely healed yet as it's quite weak and tonight it's actually hurting, I think I have pushed it a little.
But I will take care of it. I am just so thankful to be able to run again :) Look out pavement, I'm about to pound you!
#addictedmuch: CAN'T GET ENOUGH BOOTY
|My water pistol was broken!|
I started a new set of boot camps this week - a very appreciated Christmas present from my family. The first one was on Monday - I was looking forward to them and wanted to do them, yet on the morning I was a ball of riddled anxiety! It was seriously like my first boot camp, all over again!
We also had a couple of water fights at some boot camps last week which were so much fun. I haven't played like that in a long time. To start off the day with a boot camp and a water fight, it's just the best :)
So there you have it! There's some of the activities I've been up to. I'm in the middle of reassessing at the moment and I still have so much to update you on, but for now I just wanted to have a chat about the exercise. That I love. And don't hate. Who am I? :)
