I skipped my Sunday Confessions post yesterday because I have an actual legit confession to make here:
I'm out of shape.
I signed up for my second round of Tina's Best Body Bootcamp (which starts today), so yesterday I started with the pre-Fit Test.
Want to see my results while I go hide my head in shame?
Don't get me wrong, these results are in no way pathetic, but compared to where I was before my knee injury: yikes. For instance, I used to do 25ish pushups in a minute all from my toes.
Let's talk about that mile. It was brutal. It was humbling. It brought back memories of the mile run in middle school - and those are not good memories.
When I was on a running kick a few years ago, 9:44/mile was my 10K pace. After this mile, I plopped myself down on the treadmill and tried to catch my breathe. I actually laughed at myself afterwards, because there's really no sense in beating yourself up on not being in running shape.
I have been doing a little bit of running (in intervals) lately, so I was taken back by how crappy my endurance is right now. Hiking endurance: through the roof. Running endurance: nonexistent.
I really don't mind being humbled. Especially when it comes to workouts because I have so much room for growth. And I'm happy that my knee is finally healed up and I can actually run a mile without pain. So I'm already winning.
I'll keep you updated on how the bootcamp is working for me this time. I'll need to do some modifications because I plan to use my apartment gym and what little equipment I have at home.
Anyone else in Best Body Bootcamp Round 5? When was the last time a workout truly humbled you?
