Day THREE of rest week! Yahooo!
Mentally, I’ve had some struggles. Some thoughts that have run through my crazy brain (and in parenthesis, what I said back to these thoughts – yes, I talk to myself. Don’t you?)
“You’re going to get fat.” <-your MOM is going to get fat.
‘You’re going to lose all your muscle.” <-your MOM is going to lose all her muscle.
…ok I didn’t only use your mom jokes. Just on those two. As a general rule, I like to make up to 5 a day. Any more than that is just excessive.
“You need to restrict your calories.” <-No. I need to nourish my body and not worry about food right now.
“See all those people on Instagram. Their #proof. They’re gaining momentum, while you’re losing it.” <-No. I’m happy for them. Proud. Plus, they probably need a rest day soon too.
All those and lots of others. The mind is a dangerous thing.
We must simply take charge of it. Weld it.
Physically, I’m actually STILL a bit sore from a workout that I did on SATURDAY!!! It’s THAT good – I’ll have to share.
A little back story first – I had the idea of doing a free Bootcamp a while ago. But I just never got around to organizing it.
Well last week, I got a wild hair in my butt and decided to invite any and all to come work out with me at the local high school track.
I posted it a couple of times on Facebook and told people in person. I was excited. Pumped to train the masses!!
My sister was the only one to show up.
Actually it worked out WELL. You see, the night before, I created this workout that we could all do:
The 800 meter run is sprint the straight-aways, jog the curves.
Plus a Bonus WOD that I saw from a friend on Instagram (EMOM for 10 minutes – 3 Burpees, 6 pushups, 9 Jump Squats). If you do the math, that’s 100 pushups – no wonder I’m still sore.
Well…..this was HARD. Like way harder than I thought it would be. We modified some of the moves to shorter distances, but it was still a pretty hard one! I soon realized that there was NO WAY that other people who aren’t me (who’s plum crazy) and my sister (who I can force to do things) could have completed it the way I’d written it. We still ended up doing the Bonus WOD. We’re hardcore crazy.
Lesson learned: Try out your workouts before you make others do them!!
Franklin-area friends – I’m not discouraged, but rather hopeful that these Track Star Saturdays can continue. I’ll be at the track every Saturday at 7:30AM to work out. Join me!!
QUESTION: Do you use the track for any of your workouts? Did you run track in high school? <-yup, 3200 m. run, 1600 m. run, 1600m. relay.
**Next Tuesday, we’ll have our Tuesday Trainer – that means you need to read on Thursday for the theme! You should probably just read everyday anyways.**
