Is it me, or has this week gone kind of fast? Now that I’ve said that though, today will creep by.
I’m taking a quick break to get some thoughts down.
We FINALLY started following Jamie Eason’s plan. One thing I loved about working with a trainer was that I was able to just get up and go to the gym. He would tell me what to do. I didn’t have to think about anything! If something hurt, he’d show me another way to work the same muscles. If it wasn’t challenging enough, he’d push me to make it more challenging.
Since I’m not working with him any longer, I’ve become the unofficial (and definitely not qualified to be) trainer. For a while, I was just using B’s stuff. I’ve kept everything over the past couple of years. But it’s just so much work trying to figure out a “plan” to follow without getting bored, etc… So, a while ago, I found the Jamie Eason page and decided it was perfect. Now we’re following something that’s already laid out for us. Well… we’re following it for the most part. Some of the days, there just isn’t enough meat to the program. So, I’m making sure first that I’m lifting as heavy as I can, and I’ve added a couple things here and there.
Also, since I’ve pretty much stopped going to the gym in the afternoon every day, *gasp* I didn’t make the “big” board! …. Some of the days I’m adding some cardio. Mostly very steep incline on the treadmill walking. This will help my running for sure.
Day one and day two, I was solo as Mark was out of town. I was sore after day 2, so that made me happy. She has a “rest” day on Wednesday, but I decided we’d do a boot camp instead on Wednesdays.
Looking forward to seeing results!
