Hot Friday night with Groin pulls and Burpees

Day 4:

I shed my ‘noob’ status tonight during Cardio.  Broke a decent sweat AND … wait for it … had my first work-out injury!


I blame the side lunge – which, didn’t hurt so much at first (because I was doing it wrong – I’ve decided I know when I’m not doing a move right when it doesn’t hurt) but then “Don’t quit on yourself” trainer showed me how to do it right and – ping! OR!  It could have been the skater jump?  It’s all a blur.

Anyway, I’m a pro now – I’ve been working out for four whole days now you know – so of course, I worked through the pain.

I was also introduced to ‘Burpees’.  I wouldn’t have minded NOT being introduced to ‘Burpees’ instead, perhaps just waving politely to them from across the room.  I quit on myself a few times during those.


I’ve decided that it’s quality, not quantity – and while I didn’t put that method into practice tonight – I will tomorrow should I encounter an exercise that I find difficult. (And let’s face it, the odds of that happening are pretty good.)

Oh!  Incase you scanned over that second to last sentence, I did say ‘tomorrow’.  Yes, Saturday.  I did not know this.

I had decided, that in my son’s absence (he’s on a trip with his girlfriend) that I was going to take tomorrow off.  Do nothing but relax, watch movies … then do all my chores and the night job with him when he returned on Sunday.


Facebook message from the trainer that I work with (Don’t quit on yourself’s pretty partner) said tomorrow at 8 a.m. we’re working out!

I’ll make a day of it.  Workout, laundromat, grocery store, house cleaning and then do the offices by myself tomorrow night.

That should be enough activity to make up for the few times I phoned it in during some of the tougher cardio.

I shall now limp off to my room and lean on Butters while I try to peel out of my sweaty clothes.
