Dirty trick

I did a mean thing this morning. I told my 5:30am client that I'd do some cardio with her, you know help motivate her, give her moral support, blah, blah. What I didn't tell her was that we were going to do MY planned cardio workout for today.

So we got on the ellipticals, side by side and off we went. 10 minutes in, she was begging for mercy. Did I ever mention that mercy isn't one of my virtues? We went 30 minutes or thereabouts and she kind of melted off the machine and into a gasping, heaving puddle on the floor. I handed her a towel and some water.

Then I made her do a leg resistance session.


She actually did really, REALLY well. And let me tell you, if she wasn't there, I'd have been tempted to just quit after 15 minutes myself. I hate those things! So who was motivating whom?


My abs are only just beginning to feel the first twinges of DOMS. I can't wait for tonight till it really kicks in.

That was sarcasm, in case you're wondering.

Hey Kek, I have been reading your blog for a little while. I was wondering what DOMS means?

Hiya Cheryl! :)

DOMS: Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. You know, that thing that cripples you a day or so after a good workout?

This need to outdo the other person, it's an ego thing you know. Are you expecting a 'hate you/love you' message from her tomorrow?

Need advice.... what would you suggest to shrink me butt/upper-outer thigh area? Been sitting on me arse too long eh? Remembering I am iron deficient and energy levels are crap! I have tried walking long distance again, but can't do it yet.... would swimming be any good? RPM? Only if you have the time chick...
