BodyBack Workout: Week 7 Review


This was the last week of working out with the BodyBack program.  Next week we'll have our final weigh in, and comparative assessments before a final group activity.  It's hard to believe.

This week, I didn't feel like running.  To be honest, I didn't feel like moving at all.  In the end, I ran/walked 3 or 4 miles...and I can't believe I'm writing that.

"I ran/walked 3 or 4 miles"


It's small potatoes in the big world of running, but I'm pretty proud considering that, 7 weeks ago, I couldn't run 25 feet without wheezing, and having to stop to catch my breath.

Our last workout together was a military style boot camp class.  It was awesome.  We wore backpacks padded with towels, and carried a weighted medicine ball.  We wore them for the entire workout -- crab-crawling up a hill, bear crawling down, lunging, squats, jumping jacks, sprinting, weight name it. We did it...while wearing a weighted back pack.

My favorite moment was near the end of class.  We were in teams of 4-5, and everyone held a plank while each team member took a turn crawling under three times.  Okay, in the MOMENT I was hating that exercise.  It wasn't until I was reflecting back on the class, that I realized how much I enjoyed it.  You couldn't fall.  You HAD to hold that plank, because your teammate was counting on you.  When I was slithering under  on my turn, I kept thinking I was too big to fit.  But I wasn't.  I didn't get stuck.

Mama Rose (that was my "military name"...and you can bet my instructor used it!) showed up. She showed up week after week, and poured everything she had into each workout.  She battled her sweet tooth, learned how to run, and made this experience personal.

Yes, Mama Rose showed up.

Next week, we'll see if it made a difference.
