Hey there! Last night I squeezed in a mid-week workout that went a little something like this…
I warmed up on the treadmill, running 1 mile, 8:49 pace. I could tell that I’d been letting off on the running lately, but not enough to feel completely out of shape. After a quick run, I hopped on the bike to finish out my cardio. I did 6 miles, at varying resistances. It’s been fun to notice how my legs are getting used to biking, and levels that I used to think were tough, are becoming easier and easier to peddle through. Before I left for the night, I finished my sweat session with a round of weights, primarily my favorites – lat bar, leg press, and lying leg curl (you know, the one where you lay on your stomach and everyone stares at your butt).
For dinner, Adam whipped up a DELICIOUS Chicken Philly sandwich! Holy yums. With a side of Reese’s. Because Wednesday.
Tonight I’m headed back to the gym for an official personal fitness assessment!! Our gym offers free one-time assessments to all its members, so it would be silly to pass it up. I couldn’t even tell you the last time I had a “physical” done, or even met with a personal trainer. I don’t even think I’ve ever met with a personal trainer come to think of it! I’m excited and nervous to see what kind of routine she puts me through, and I’m hoping she doesn’t kill me! I have a feeling she probably will kick my tail though, but I’m hoping I’ll at least get a solid idea of where I stand overall. Adam did his several months ago, and it seemed to be both eye opening, and obvious. He readily admitted how tough the workout was though, so I know mine will be tough too. I know she’ll also probably take my blood pressure, weigh me, measure flexibility, etc. as well.
I’ll be sure to fill you all in on how it goes! I imagine I will be sore tomorrow, because while I do a lot of cardio and strength training on occasion, I’m not exactly the “strongest” girl at the gym! Heck, I don’t even know the names of half the machines! AHH! Tonight is going to be interesting to say the least!! Fingers crossed!
Did you work out last night? Should I tell the trainer I’m a runner or leave that part out? Should I be nervous? Have you ever had a personal fitness assessment done? How did it go?
Maybe I also won’t tell her I ate half a pint of ice cream Tuesday night and a Reese’s Egg for dessert last night.
