I thought it was time to practice what I preach and do a complete Fit Camp again. I did one about 2 years ago but use the well used excuse that “I don’t have time” to fit it in to my day more regularly. This is of course rubbish … I have a garden to workout in and workouts at my fingertips. All I need to do is get out there and do it.
This month I’m doing just that. I’ve done as I recommend campers to do.
Done my pre-measuring, weighing and body composition measurements.
I’ve taken my before photos.
I’ve committed to doing all 12 sessions on Early Riser days when I get back from Mortimer (Monday, Wednesday) and then on a Saturday.
I’m trying out a modified eating plan this month. Sadly it doesn’t include copious mugs of black coffee, but I want to see what effect it has on me before I suggest it to anyone else.
Week One, Day One
I did this on Saturday after a late breakfast of cold salmon and scrambled eggs. I am not usually very good eating that close to exercise but managed OK. It was about 11.45 by the time I got going and it was hot. But worked through the ‘Rise & Shine’ workout comfortably but definitely felt it in my legs as the session progressed. Was glad to lie down for the ‘Meet & Greet’ finisher 🙂
Happy with that for my starter session. It’s been a long time since I did Fit Camp style exercise and my thighs reminded me of this throughout the rest of the day.
Week One, Day Two
Not too many aches for me after day one, which is a relief as last time I did a camp session I had trouble moving for the rest of the week. Today it was raining, it was soggy and my phone decided to reboot midway through so I had to faff about to sort my timing out. Otherwise all done. For the record I do like burpees, but I really don’t much like renegade rows…
Week One, Day Two ‘A’
Felt the need to run this morning. So did a 5km. I find this happens, once I start exercising regularly I want to do more.
Week One, Day Three
I found this one challenging I am not sure if it’s because it was tough, because of my run yesterday or because of too many early starts this week. Either way I was glad it was over (should I be telling you that?!)It was a combination of a circuit with the bands to create resistance and then short repeaters to boost cardiovascular work. That certainly worked!
I am off on a three day training event from Thursday to Saturday and have the brilliant opportunity of doing a Boxercise class with Andy Wake the founder. You can’t turn that down can you? And then a kettlebell class the next day. Both classes are at 06.30 so no lay ins here but I am a little worried that I will be the one propped up on my laptop by midday each day!
My week 2 starts on Sunday.
Have a good rest of week one and remember…
