Oh. My. Freaking. Goodness.
I am so fatigued. Here’s what happened.
A few weeks ago, my friends from work and I bought a Groupon together for 24 personal training sessions. It was a great deal and worked out to be less than two dollars each per session. And today, we went to our first session.
I’m a regular exerciser and have been for a couple of years. In high school, I was an all-state athlete, then I slacked off in college and have really gotten back into exercising frequently since Ducks and I have been married. So, I thought, this workout group should be a piece of cake; or at least I should be in much better shape than the others in the group.
I’m sorry to say that after about three minutes, all three of us were an indistinguishable puddle of sweat and exercise bleh-ness, so the extra workouts that I had on K and H didn’t do a whole lot of good in setting me apart from the crowd.
How can exercise so hard? And, how do I apparently have zero percent conditioning after diligently working out and flattering myself that I was in decent shape?
Somebody commiserate with me. Please. 😉
Maybe I’m exaggerating just a little, but not much. I am extremely tired and sore. And I dislike squats tremendously. Lunges were not as bad as I remembered; they were actually kind of fun. Planks are the worst activity ever invented. To look on the bright side, I have incentive to work out extra hard between now and our next Monday session.
And, I’m really proud of both H and K for working out so hard, especially since K just had a baby two months ago!
PS Thanks for all the great comments on sopapilla cheesecake. It really is delicious. I will post the recipe tomorrow!
