Strength Day: A Little WeakSeptember 22, 2008 at 1:06 pm | Posted in Life, Strength Training | 4 Comments
Time of Day: 5:40 AM
Duration: About an hour, split up
Notes: Owwww ouch ouch owwwww. I’m sore already. I’ve been sore for several hours. I’m not sure why, but today’s strength workout felt much harder than usual. Maybe my body is just tired from the weekend, even my upper body. Hopefully my legs will at least get some rest today.
This morning, I went to my gym and did this workout. This is the Base week of my Ultimate Abs workout (I’m in Phase 2). I highly recommend the Base week exercises…if you want to sit at your desk at work and SUFFER. I blame all of my lower back stiffness on the planks and back extensions.
I’m shadowing a personal trainer after work today. This will be my fourth time shadowing, and I always leave with mixed feelings. On one hand, I can’t wait to become certified because it’s such an interesting, useful job. It might even be FUN *gasp*. On the other hand, the trainer that I am shadowing is extremely knowledgeable, and in comparison…I am so not. I know that she’s been training for years and has several certifications and I cannot expect to know nearly as much until I have been on the job for a while, but I want to be able to do my job well, so I still have much to learn. I do, however, leave shadowing with a sense that I am on the correct path to finding the best career for me, and that is very reassuring.
