My legs hate me. I promised I would give them a break and do water aerobics yesterday, but I lied. My little one was sick, so rather than go to the gym, I ran my same 1.58 mile track around the neighborhood. It seemed a little harder than the day before, but I think I was going at a little bit faster of a pace. Maybe even 3.4 mph! *said sarcastically * I’ll never know though because the iMapMyRun app failed me. I was SO disappointed! Grace, however, was at water aerobics; and she gave it her all! Go Kelly! =) She also scolded me when I suggested we go get a free cookie from the break room! Said it wasn’t part of our Warrior Dash training! Go Kelly! >=/
So today, I met with Kyle for my one personal training session. I wish I could have more, because in my 30 minutes, I could tell a HUGE difference in the way I felt. It’s much more challenging, and it has to be more effective. Most of the things he showed me involved the exercise ball and weights, which is great because I have these things at home for those times that I can’t get to the gym. I’m excited, and I can tell I’m going to be sore tomorrow; and I didn’t’ even go through the full circuit training regimen! Depending on when bedtime falls tonight, I may go back to start the program. I’m supposed to do the whole shebang with no breaks and then run through the whole routine again. Kyle says to do this 3 times a week, but not consecutive days. On in-between days, I’ll focus on cardio and increasing my speed and distance.
Sounds like a great plan, huh!
But seriously, my legs hate me. One of the exercises involved squats using the ball, and my legs are SCREAMING in protest. I’m pretty sure they’re screaming explatives! I’m concerned about a boycott if I try to squat. Is there a word for the fear of squatting?
