So my alarm goes off again at 4:20am and I got out of bed and voluntarily went out to the gym. It was raining a little but it didn’t worry me as the gym is indoors…or so I thought…not today apparently!!!
Just because she can…the trainer advises us that we are going to the park today…not just for a run to warm up..but for our whole session. We had to carry our equipment with us and then once there we had to run up and down slippery slopes; do push ups on the wet grass; lift a heavy metal bar above our head and lunge across the field with a damp sand bag on our shoulders (amongst other things)…repeatedly!
These would previously have all fallen into the category of ‘don’t do that, it’s dangerous’ … however today I did as I was told, nothing bad happened and I felt fantastic afterward!
No, I’m not lying or even exaggerating…yes, I felt exhausted but the overwhelming feeling was exhilaration that I had accomplished the set task and enjoyed being outside in the cool, fresh morning air more than I ever would have thought possible!
Will I go back tomorrow?
