Kick Yo’ Booty At The Track

I’ve been wanting to try this Track Bootcamp workout ever since I saw it over at How Sweet It Is, so while we were home, I took advantage of the track at Southwest Point.  I had to do something to balance out all that fried southern food and sweets and this workout did not disappoint!

Except for running, I’m used to working out in a gym, so it was definitely a different experience to work out in the heat.  I was a hot, sweaty mess in about five seconds, but you can’t beat working out with this as your view:

Since we went to the track around 9:30 on a weekday, we were younger than everyone else by about 40 years, so it was like working out at the local retirement fitness center.  Hey, that’s cool with me as long as I don’t get passed while running by an old man with orthopedic shoes on.

I did this workout in about 40 minutes:

I really felt all of those lunges the next day!  
While I worked out, Roxie had a little fun of her own.  We got her from a farm in Scott County, so we always joke that she’s a farm dog and hates the city.  She had a blast chasing rabbits and ran with me on a few laps.  She loves getting off the leash, which never happens in Maryland.

Nick said it’s mandatory to wear cutoff shirts in Tennessee. 
Happy puppy.

Great workout + time with my little family + time to talk to God + being by the lake = one happy girl!
