The running class tonight absolutely kicked my butt. We did a 1.5 miles warm up on the local roads around the Burnet Middle School. Then we did a series of eight stations where a station consists of a calisthenic followed by 100m run to the next station. The eight stations included: 30 jumping jacks, 30 cheerleaders kicks, 10 yard shuttle run x10, 30 second water ski, high knees: 60 total, 10 lunges, 2 times, walk back for recovery, 2 sets of 10 push ups, and 2 sets of 10 crunches. We did this three times. By the time I was done I was cooked, double cooked, double dog-dare-you cooked. My legs were quivering. It’s now been over a hour since class, after a shower, and my leg muscles are still weak. You think that you’re fit, but this just goes to show you that you are not fit at all. OH MY GAWD this was some workout.
P.S. Wednesday: It’s now been 24 hours and I’m still sore. I can barely bend over, sit down, kneel down, or reach up high. I don’t know how everyone else is feeling. Answer from my coach “Would it make it any better to know that Geezer (the other coach) is telling the story about you finishing the pushups during your final 400? Pretty cool.” My response: “I was to do 20 push-ups and I only got 15 done when I was supposed to do them, so on the last lap I stopped and finished the last 5 and then he high-5’ed me”
90 jumping jacks,
90 cheerleaders kicks,
30 10-yard shuttle run,
90 water skis,
180 high knees,
60 push ups,
60 crunches and now I know why I’m so sore.
P.P.P.S Thursday: Still sore, can barely move to sit down, but ran 4 miles slowly this morning with two 500mg Tylenols in my blood stream to help out.
P.P.P.P.S Friday: I’m beginning to come out of my crippling fog. Woohoo. And tomorrow I can re-enter it (actually I doubt this) by running 12 miles.
