Three of us showed up to exercise in the dark this morning. Our coach is out of town, but he left us with instructions on what to do. After warming up with a half-mile run to a pitch-black neighborhood park, we did our homework:
And let me tell you: It takes forever to lunge across the length of that park.
Still: No lights, wet grass, chilly weather, morning rain -- all perfect for an outdoor workout with a senior officer in the Marines and a guy whose nickname in class is "The Terminator."
As you probably know by now, I love bodyweight workouts, so this one was right up my alley. The only part I found mildly uncomfortable: Doing sit-ups in the wet darkness, hoping that I didn't pick a spot sprinkled with dog shit.
