Waiting for the pain to stop...

I had my meeting with my personal trainer on Thursday. It was AWESOME!!

We did all kinds of things. Some stuff on the bosu for core, some free weights, some machines. All of it hard. All of it more than I would have done on my own. And we even had some giggles. It was so worth the $$. I know I did way more reps than I would have on my own. We did two sets of all the exercises.

Fast forward to Friday, the next day when the only part of my body that isn't sore is my ears. I have to meet "J" for our bi-weekly run. I think we did almost 9k....in an hour of running and walking. By the time I got out of my car when it was all over and I was home, I could hardly get out of the front seat. I then had to figure out how to get my sports bra off, because I couldn't lift my arms over my head!

Fast forward again to this morning, when I had 90 minutes of yoga. There wasn't one move that we did that didn't almost kill me. I have never needed a stretch more in my life. At one point, I was having trouble with a pose and the teacher told me I need to work on my core. I'm like "chicklet - that's why I'm here!!". She wasn't being a ditch pig though...it was said with kindness.

Tomorrow I have my running room run. 2 x 10:1. Should be fun times, because my cousin will be there. I won't be running alone.

My points have been plentiful, but counted. Thanks to all (Poppy & Kate) who helped with the activity points. I actually noticed that I had miscalculated some for my running (which is intense, or so it says on the points finder). I love finding points.

Well, I guess I've blathered on long enough. Hope all of you are having a healthy on program day!!

  1. My points lately have also been plentiful, but I'm counting them, and at the end of the week, I have flex left, so I suppose I'm doing ok right?
