Payback!


Today's training was a wee bit challenging. What with appointments with the building site supervisor and my osteopath, a pile of work to plough through, kids on school holidays and one thing and another, I didn't get to today's training until late this afternoon.

I did Cathe's Butts & Guts for the first time ever. HOLY GLUTES OF FIRE! They could use her in the armed forces to torture confessions out of enemy prisoners with this workout. I lasted an hour - bugger the bonus sections!

Then, when everything south of my waist was completely trashed, I had to get on the bike and do a set from Spinervals aerobase builder. With Coach Troy yelling "Keep it AEROBIC!!" at me, I had to seriously dial down the resistance from where I'd usually set it .....my quads started to burn, Baby, burn! within seconds of getting on the bike. Huh, can't imagine why.....

After 3 minutes, I was seriously thinking about chucking it in, but looking down at the post-Easter bloat around my middle spurred me on to do the entire agonising 20 minutes.

If anyone's looking for me, I'll be the one lying unconscious on the couch.
