I had another personal training session today. I thought I would be clever and do fifteen minutes on the elliptical before she got there, so I'd be warmed up. I knew I was in trouble when she said 'Great, let's do 15 more!'. So, the session started off with 35 minutes total on the elliptical. By the time she left, I was a sweaty, quivering mass of depleted muscles. Wow!
The great thing is, I am a lot stronger than I realized. I can move heavier weights than I thought, and I think I did a pretty good job. Of course, I was huffing and puffing, and my face was bright red. But, I did it. I was so proud of myself! I hate spending the extra money, but it is worth every single cent. I just wish I could afford to do it more often!
The really good timing is that we have started back up with the hyperbaric chamber again. It was definitely hot tonight, but I am really hoping it will help with the muscle soreness and recovery time. (Did I mention the plank, side planks, and push ups???) And, I just love the bonding time with Michael. We don't get a lot of time to just hang out - even if he is glued to his tablet the entire session.
So, I am dead tired and expect to sleep like a rock tonight. In fact, I think the pillow is calling my name. Good night!
