FFF Diva Challenge: Operation Boot Camp "Biggest Loser" Competition
DAY 4: Monday, January 4th, 2010
Today was the first day back at boot camp!!! Which in the Operation Boot Camp world means PT test!
PT Tests: What does that mean?
At the beginning and end of the monthly program, we are given physical training tests to assess our progress.
My results today:
Mile run = 13 minutes, 18 seconds
Facilitated push-ups (on knees) = 35
Facilitated sit-ups (crunches) = 24
Facilitated dips (knees bent) = 30
I am a little bummed about the personal mile time today, because my December '09 PT mile time best was around 11 minutes and 58 seconds (give or take a couple of miliseconds). Anyways it was below 11 minutes and now I am at 13 minutes!
My initial reaction: "BOOOOOOOOOOO! Maureen YOU SUCK!"
My reaction after some rational thought: "Maureen that's pretty good considering you still feel like hell and are getting over a cold of some sort. Pretty good at 6am in the morning (boot camp is from 6-7am outdoors at Hellyer Park). Pretty good considering it was 44 degrees when you ran this morning (our lowest temperature was 27 degrees)."
I feel better.
Actually I felt a lot better after my other run. What do I mean? Well since I have a goal of running 1,010 miles in the year 2010 I needed to catch up on my running mileage. Remember: in order for me to run 1,010 miles in 2010 I need to run at least 2.76 miles a day or at least 20ish miles a week. Since I didn't run yesterday I needed to play catch-up, so I ran another 3 miles after my PT test which took another 50 minutes because it was sooooo cold.
I feel DEFINITELY better.
Tonight? Planning my meals for the week, food logging, stretching, & foam rolling. ALSO planning my exercise schedule for the week.
UPDATE: I will be running the Waterfront Run in San Francisco on Sunday, January 24th. The run is a 5K along the Embarcadero in the city. It will be beautiful I am sure. Let me know if you are running it to!
