Breathe In, Breathe Out

So the personal trainer pretty much handed my ass to me this morning.

Nah, she wasn’t that bad but it was a little more hard core than I’m used to. I think we did close to three miles…all on the cross country course…which means it felt like it was ALL uphill. She kept me moving though. I think part of my issue is that I don’t push myself hard enough. Hence why I have Trainer.

So she shall now be refered to as “Trainer”. Protects her identity and all that good crap.

But other than the slight ass kicking, I totally love her.

So we did the run, then we went inside and did some quick core work. She showed me some good (painful, but good) ab exercises. Some I’d done and some I had not. We did one exercise where I stood beside the wall, then leaned over and rested my forearm on the wall and then dipped my hips toward the wall…if that makes any sense.

Yeah, I can’t find a single good google image of it. Basically, feet 2ish feet from the wall, forearm on wall paralell to the ground…dip hips towards wall. She said I’ll feel that tomorrow in my obliques. I hope so.

Then we did some stuff with a swiss ball and a few other things. I need to go home and do a little more tonight because I felt like I was going to pass out in the gym. I don’t think I ate enough this morning. Must remember to eat more for ass-kicking workouts.

That’s all for now!!
