Itzy on the Road: Jacksonville Part II

Hey guys! Thank you for your sweet responses to my post yesterday! You all made me smile :) Today was a long but great day! I arrived at Attack training before 8 and we had started our first complete class by 8:30. The rest of the morning was filled with education sessions. After a very quick lunch (20 minutes!), we returned for two hours of more physical technique training (going through every motion multiple times perfecting our form). After another short education training, we did some physical fitness testing including a beep test (have you runners out there tried this?), pushup, situp, and a flexibility tests. The beep test was tough! You basically run back and forth as the beeps get faster and fast until you can't keep up with the beeps any more.

When I got back to the hotel, I was starving! I had this soup:

Tons of hummus and pita chips:

And an apple. I then got to back to work! We have our first test in the morning and I am teaching the interval track. Hope you guys are having a great weekend :)

I've never done the beeping test - but it sounds tough. Only 20 minutes for lunch...man, they're working y'all hard...they should at least have given you 30 minutes. :) Good luck on the test tomorrow.

Hi! I was reading through some fitness blogs and spent some time looking at your recipes...yummy! I noticed you are from Charleston...my bf and I visited there last year for spring break and fell in love! It was so beautiful! I put a photo up of a little park in Charleston as the main photo on my blog. You're so lucky to live there. :)

Sincerely,
Amy S.
