Today was Day 5 Of 12 Days Of Fitness. And, well it sucked. It was called 5 Minute Runs. Yeah that wasn’t the bad part, I made it through those. However the floor block with the 2500 meters total of rowing, yeah that can take a flying leap. Start off with a 1000 meter row. Uhmmm what then 750, 500, and finally a 250 meter row. Yeah OTF you’re on something and it isn’t anything good. Never again do I want to do that workout again. But, hey I broke the 500 calorie burned wall.
One of my friends posted this, this morning and well I completely needed it as I was already feeling defeated and dreading my workout today as I hate rowing and just was not in the right mental mind frame;
Challenge. There are actually two definitions.
(1) a call to take part in a contest or competition, especially a duel
(2) an objection or query as to the truth of something, often with an implicit demand for proof
Most people would say the definition #1 is what we do in the gym every day but I would say more often then not, it’s #2. The twist is that our MINDS are usually the ones that need proof.
So often we talk ourselves out of the BELIEF that we can achieve, that we can go the extra two inches, drop our booties down a bit lower and grab that heavier kettle bell. I CHALLENGE each of you to push yourself beyond what your mind believes you can do, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised 😉
I made it through it but it was definitely a mental game. Luckily one of the coaches was taking the class and she was next to me rowing with me, and the coach, coaching the class was right there encouraging me through the last few strokes of each row. Just one of the many reasons why I love OTF.
Added bonus to today, my new Whole 30 books came.
New cookbook, and now it’s a question of what recipe will I try first.
And, I got the Day by Day guide and can’t wait to use it after my surgery. Once I’ve started my recovery from surgery I’ll start my Whole 30 to help jumpstart the weight lose.
And, now here’s to tomorrow and Day 6 titled 6 Rowers Climbing. Yeah not looking forward to that at all. Time to get my mindset right.
Good night. This girl is back on a round of exhausted all the time.
