TRAINER DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was fuuuun. We did 3ish miles at a pretty decent pace. I felt like quitting at about 15 minutes but because I was with Trainer I kept going. She doesn’t so much PUSH me, as she shows me what I’m actually capable of. But man it was cold out!!! Really windy too which sucked. It was hard to keep pushing against the wind towards the last uphill part but I DID IT!!!! šŸ™‚ Twas awesome. So proud.

Then we did a killer 10 minute ab routine. We did 1 minute drills of 10 different exercises. It was awesome. šŸ™‚ I haven’t had sore abs in weeks…I’m hoping to be SORE tomorrow!!!! šŸ™‚

Well, I’d best be getting to bed. 5K in the AM with mom, then another one on Sunday!!! Watch for the race report!!!!!!!!!!

Too much, too young, too fast
I’m gonna drink it up while it lasts
Too much, too young, too fast
I’m gonna tear it up so fill my glass

Thanks Kris. šŸ˜‰

I’m pretty sure I was worthless yesterday…between a lack of sleep and some crap-tastic weather…I didn’t manage a workout.

However today…was another story.

TRAINER DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

All I have to say…is tomorrow is gonna hurt. šŸ™‚

We did 30ish min on the dreadmill because it was raining out. Did some inclines and pace work type stuff. I nearly died…it was SOOO hot in the gym. I was totally parched by the end. Not fun. Stupid rain. I’d rather get soaked than deal with running in place.

After that we did some strength training. Medicine ball drills, leg throw-downs, squats, and some other ab and back work.

It’s terrible, but the throw-downs are my FAVORITE. I requested them today…masichist much?

I love it, but MAN my stomach is going to haaaaaaate it tomorrow. Heee. Fun times.

Well, lets close this one…and move on to the MUD RUN PICS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!!
