The Morning After...


The morning after (the first day of "boot camp") has sharply brought to mind how far I have fallen off the wagon of fitness! Getting out of bed - painful! Sitting on the toilet - almost impossible! I needed a crane to sit me down gently... but, no! I had to plop, unceremoniously, on my own volition with a growl! Then there was the getting up! Ouch!
Let me just say that I slept like a ROCK! From seven PM when I fell asleep on the couch... woke briefly to move from couch to bed... then OUT... until this morning just before the alarm at 5! Sleep was good! (sorry, Amanda)
Today, is my day to walk/run on my own. I'm not sure how that is going to go. lol. I thank all of my encouragers! Tomorrow morning, I'll be back out in that parking lot at 5:15 AM with "Go, Noni, Go" echoing in my mind... until it is replaced by the shrill orders of our drill master! LOL!

I remember the pain of sitting and standing from the toilet....oh it hurts...
Hope your walk helps work out the soreness!

You know what I bet? I bet that pain is gone in the next two or three days, and you'll be on the fast track back to feeling good, strong, and powerful - just like you used to. This boot camp is your type of workout - hard core and challenging you to "achieve new goals." See? A perfect fit for your core strengths. XOXO

Good for you! I actually got motivated this week and went to "Innovative Core Ball" class. It was a great workout. Let's just say that my abs were woken up!

Love your boot camp writings! With every workout, I wonder why I'm torturing this middle-age (ok..maybe beyond middle-age) body! I feel your pain trying to sit on the toilet seat...HA!!

Boot camp... sounds like torture! LOL Hope the soreness is wearing off and you're back to enjoying your morning runs. I just caught up on your blog -- looks like you had a wonderful visit to Roanoke. Alex is absolutely precious! Can't wait to see more pics!!
