What did I do to make you hate me????



This morning I was calling Liz many, many bad names. Why, you ask? She seems like such a nice lady.... Ha! She's a fiend. I'll tell you why.

First, I had to go to the gym to do my chest and arms workout. That was hard, but I'm OK with hard. Then I had to stop at the park on the way home and do Liz's Urban Warrior workout. It was a nasty, nasty mix of sprint intervals, high-knee running and other favourites of mine, along with such gems as (OMG!) tricep pushup burpees, inverted rows on the play equipment and (yikes!) criss-cross superhero pushups ....at least I think that's what they were called. There was a lot more, but the finisher - THE FINISHER - was 6 passes across the monkey bars with 30 second rests. *gulp*

I made it across once, took my rest, then started the second pass, cursing under my breath. I got to within 3 rungs of the end before my hands lost their grip and my arms just gave out. That was IT. I picked up my water bottle and my resistance band and stomped off back to the car.

Boy, I love a relaxing Saturday morning.

Fun is a subjective thing, Lia.... :o)

While I was doing my training, my husband was off on a "leisurely" 30km bike ride, followed by getting kids up and then doing the meat and veg shopping (yes, he's a good 'un).

I think I'd rather face my training....

LOL!!! Just the names of some of those things are scary! I don't even want to know what the exactly are :P
Still, no better way to start the day, right!!! :)

Well, I have to say, the endorphins were still flowing several hours later.

And - OH YEAH, no better way to start the day!
