    Last Friday @lauren and I met for our first self-organized workout. We received workout cards from Eugene Kim prior to our meeting. It was a great start and I am so fortunate to be partnering with Lauren. She is a super thoughtful and insightful person and I am so glad that we have stayed connected. This will be my third time around doing Bootcamp but the first time as a self-directed series. I really enjoyed the practice I’m getting with this initial workout and all the helpful reminders that the 100 questions exercise brought up for me. We tried to be diligent about timing ourselves during the different exercises and felt comfortable making adjustments due to time limitations. I have to admit that there were some moments where I wondered out loud what Eugene might think of this or that. But for the most part (can you start a sentence with but?), we settled into trusting our instincts and ourselves.

      Anna, I’m so happy that you and @lauren are doing this! Thanks for sharing your experiences. Looking forward to hearing how this goes, especially with new workouts that you haven’t experienced yet!

    So glad Natalie asked about how to start a post. I keep feeling challenged by technology lately. I finally published my first blog entry for Bootcamp #2 this evening and it took me about 20 minutes to figure it out. I saw the homework about posting something on this Water Cooler and immediately felt concerned about my ability to navigate the site. Anyway, I am so glad that a component of Bootcamp includes blogging and tweeting (kind of). I have never blogged or posted anything online before Bootcamp and I appreciate being pushed out of my comfort zone. Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

      Thanks for fighting through the tool again, Anna, and for having a good attitude about it. I’ve de-emphasized online tools during our time together, but I definitely wanted to make some kind of online interaction part of the overall experience, so I’m glad you’ve found this part somewhat useful, if only because it’s pushed you. See you later this morning.
