  • 1hr session with the drill sergeant at British Military Fitness

Right now I think all of my limbs are made of lead.  My quads have only just stopped stinging, and I know that tomorrow I’m going to be more stiff than I have been in a loooong time.

Yep – British Military Fitness was a killer.  By halfway through, I was 100% ready to pull off that bastard blue vest, flip the drill sergeant the bird and storm out of there.  There was a lot – a LOT of running.  And then there was the thrilling moment when some yobs walking past jeered something about “The Biggest Loser” at my group, with me trailing up the back about to pass out.  I tell you, that jibe felt like it was aimed directly at me.

THIS close.  I was THIS close to packing it in.  But then all of a sudden, we were back where we started, doing stretches, the instructor was smiling and everyone was congratulating everyone else, and giving me encouraging comments (“don’t worry, he’s the hardest instructor of them all, that was a really hard session”) and all of a sudden I wasn’t about to die anymore.

I think I’ll do it again.  Maybe not this week – it’s scheduled next for Thursday, and Thursday’s gonna pour it down.  I don’t think I’m ready for wet weather boot camp yet. But next week when the sun comes out and my muscles aren’t as pained as I expect them to be, then I’ll go back to it – and hope for an easier instructor.

I did have more than my two tolerated foods today – cocoa, philly, babybel light and fruit yoghurt.  I’m aware of some advice in an old Dukan chat from months ago though – after (or before) a heavy workout, you can have a little more carbs to give you the energy you need to heal muscles.

Mine need all the healing they can get! 😉

  1. Meh. You and J should just do the 5BX. It just works. Mind you it takes a while, but you do progress. Dave has used 5BX to regain fitness levels over the years due to injury time-outs. Search the net for Canadian air force 5 BX. Job Done. 10 mins a day/


    • Hehe… Problem is, unless I’m really focussed, I probably won’t remember to do them. But BMF is a big enough deal that I’ll get out of the house 2-3 times a week and just do it. And there’s no way I’d push myself as hard as I did last night, if I was on my own… I’m totally looking forward to the next session, just as soon as my muscles stop screaming. 😉
