This took about one hour to complete.

It was a great workout and I followed up with a swim, and then later that night my friend Eileen and I tried a Krav Maga class from James Sherman at Vebo Fitness in NYC. We had gotten a groupon that we finally put to good use and got a good workout.  In the class there were lots of strength exercises, and we learned some of the moves that are used in combat such as the eye poke, elbow jab and kicking.  It was good fun and I broke a good sweat (though the heat helped that) and learned some great new ab exercises that I plan to use in next week's bootcamp.
