I hope everyone is planning (or already having!) a great weekend. I know we all have our 'regular Saturday rituals' and mine is a morning workout with Koi Fitness. I've been training with Koi for about 2 years and can't imagine starting my day any other way. We meet most morning before dawn in Golden Gate Park to engage in a , shall we call it 'lively,' workout with some of the most amazing trainers that I ever had the opportunity to work with.
Good news - Saturday. On Saturday we meet at Baker Beach (yes, the beach pictured above) and 'run-sprint-sit-up-push-up-run-side-plank-crunch-sprint-yoga-stretch' for about an hour.
Bad News - the Baker Beach Sand Ladder. This is what greeted us this morning. It's a tough run to the top if this thing (and, yes, there's more of it past the horizon line in that image . .. lol). It's really tough to run it twice. Today, we ran (well, and walked, and at times stumbled up) it 6 times. (and, yes, Joe, Peter, Dave, Brighton, and John ran it 7 times - whatever!) Ugh.
I think the best part of the entire bootcamp program is that you never quite know what you might be capable of until some tells you to do something, and you realize that you're just going to have to do it.
Six times up. Six times down. with an untold number of push-ups and crunches and side-planks mixed in between.
For me, it's a great metaphor for life. You'll never know what you can accomplish until you just start something with the clear knowledge that you are just going to have to finish it.
So, pick something you think is impossible.
And - - - - - "GO !"
