After 2 days of rest, I was raring to go. I guess the instructors figured that was the case, because they put us through a killer cardio workout today -- the workout of the day consisted of:
1 lap around the track
100 jumps with jump-ropes
25 "bodybuilders" (squat, get into plank position, pushup, standup)
(repeat until time is up or you give up)
To distract my mind from my racing heart, I spent a lot of time watching the other runners on the track. They seem to belong to a running club of some sort. Young and old, they're all fit and fast. They look so graceful, making their way around in perfect stride, with long lean legs and sinewy arms. Like gazelles.
