If you can’t tell by the title of this post, I’m a little bit excited for the CHAARG Bootycamp! This fit plan comes with workouts for every day of the week, ranging from cardio, to bodyweight to dumbbell workouts!
This past spring I signed up to participate in the SpringBreak Fit Plan offered to CHAARG members. I was super pumped [although less than I am now] + started out great the first day. But as the fit plan went on, I started to feel discouraged due to my inability to complete the workouts. I was also training for a half marathon at this time + went through some knee issues due to inadequate running shoes + my body asking me to pump the breaks. Needless to say, I did not complete the fit plan like I originally hoped I would.
CHAARG Bootycamp is a 6 week fitness program. But it is so much more than that. These next 6 weeks are going to be difficult, but I am prepared to grow more as a person. I’m prepared to jump right in + do this thing! Although, I haven’t completed any tasks from my fitness bucket list, I know that I am moving in the right direction with my fitness journey.
The first piece of this journey is to complete the fit test – which I will be doing momentarily + recording my results. This fit test will be the same fit test that all participants complete at the conclusion of the fit plan to see the results + impact the fit plan has made to not only our health, but also our lives.
Another aspect to the fit plan, along with the variety of workouts, is to run 60 miles in 6 weeks. Thinking about it now – that’s not terrible. That’s 10 miles per week. Or five 2 mile runs. Is that really that bad? I know that right now I’m thinking it isn’t. But I also know that during the week it’s difficult to motivate myself to workout or do much of anything other than work, eat, shower, sleep. But I’m up for the challenge.
My 60 miles in 6 weeks starts soon with a roughly 2 mile run with my neighbor. He’s not much of a runner, + I’m so honored that he reached out to me about running. Other than my half – I never really was into running [and to be perfectly honest, I’m still not always a huge fan]. The fact that someone thought to ask me to go running with them because they want to get into running means a lot to me! So time to dive in head first + get back into running!
Where do I go from here – other than a run?! Well, my thoughts are to blog about my Bootycamp experience [mostly to keep myself more accountable….]. This will give me a place to record my journey, + be able to look back on it and be like “yeah – I did this!”. So stay tuned as this journey is just beginning!
