This week we moved boot camp away from the water. We worked out at a park on the base of a bluff. There was lots more shade. And lots more hills.
Letty was there. And her friend Melinda. And Albert, Gabe's cousin. And me.
And Gabe, of course.
Gabe -- always the silent assassin -- quietly made us run up hills, then do push ups, then sprint, then do lunges, then sprint some more. . the usual.
He made us do wall sits. Here are me & Melinda doing wall sits:
|Look Ma! No chairs!|
Doesn't it look like we're just hanging out? Look closer.
Notice the red color of my face? See how shiny I am? That's SWEAT. If you look really close, you will notice the stringy wet hair surrounding my face. And the soaked tee shirt. This was about 10 minutes into our workout.
Shortly after this was taken, Letty took her top off again. Because it was HOT. Not only did she take her top off, she was wearing an adorable matching baby blue sports bra-skort combo.
In other words? She took her top off and looked good in it.
She also looked a lot cooler.
So. . .. .I did it too.
I took my top off.
In front of BOYS.
Boys I didn't give birth to.
And it was cooler. I felt lovely & light. My midriff has never been out in public before. It's not red like my face, it's pink. Having my top off felt wonderful.
And self conscious.
It probably improved my form because I was sucking my gut in the whole time. Not that anyone could tell, but I was.
I am not going to take my top off at every workout. But when it's REALLY hot? I'll get some matching outfits.
