Relieving frustration

Posted in Fitness & Health at 12:14 pm by loretta

My bike chain slipped twice on the way to the gym. I was so frustrated! I almost hoped we would do boxing today, but Brian tries not to stack on too much cardio at once. Today we did a lot of leg stretching, and modified lunges. My left leg is so much weaker, it was super hard when it was the base leg. :( But I powered through it. Then ball slams, deadlifts, and finished with more stretching. I feel much better.

Arm focus w/ a side of core

Posted in Fitness & Health at 12:16 pm by loretta

Today, Brian realized that I haven’t done any slams in a while. To up the difficulty, he also had me bounce with my hips while I did it. Then he added weights to a couple of core exercises that I have been doing already. When I succeed at doing something in a harder version, I feel strong!

Hopefully, it won’t start raining on my ride home. I have not cycled in the rain before, that I can remember.

Seeing improvement

Today Brian, did, and I realized it was true, that I’m doing better at my various core exercises. So, of course, he had to make them more difficult. how else will I improve? I’m happy to be able to do more.

Now, I need to tighten my bike brakes before I head out.

Today included a lot of the regular stretching and strengthening exercises, including the planking. At the end, he rolled out my IT bands, which always hurts. More so today, since I haven’t had it done in a while. ;_;
