Swimming in jeans isn't fun

Day 4: Sgt. Roy's Bootcamp - The Pool

I'm participating in Sgt. Roy's Bootcamp. It's a one-week intense exercise program lead by Sgt. Roy Lewis, a real Army drill sergeant.

Wearing blue jeans and t-shirts, we climbed into the pool at the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center. We started with one minute of power jumps, followed by a minute of flutter kicks on the wall and pushups.

Jumping wasn't so bad, but the flutter kicks killed me. I can barely swim and being weighted down by blue jeans didn't help. After three rounds of that, we swam the length of the pool using kick boards. I ended up walking because the kicking thing wasn't working for me.

We finished the day's workout with a fun game. We split into two teams. The objective was to get a volleyball to the other side. We quickly learned that passing was the only way we would get the ball past each other. My team went up three to one, but Road Dawg's team came back to win.

Next time, they're going down.

Oh, and next time I'll bring a change of clothes. Duh.


  1. I just had do that but was an emergency on the pool, but I guess it could be fun, like movies haha thanks.

  2. I guess, not really fat, it's just that your tummy gets bigger when you drink too much. Drink moderately.
