Day 5 & 6 - the pain continues ...

My Day 5 - of my 'New Journey' can be summed up with this:

I had to spend another 60 minutes on it on Sunday after already doing 60 minutes of cardio the previous day (I decided to break things up a bit and use the bike in the middle).

I only got to 40 minutes but was still really impressed as my prescription had called for a total of 2 one hour sessions within 7 days and I'd done it in two (just because that's how the schedule worked out this past week). Yay me!

I also learned that despite all of the pain I was in it felt good to move, it helped with the muscle stiffness for sure.

Day 6 of my 'New Journey' was another trip back to see my trainer. This picture sums up what I enjoyed most about our time, except for the part where I didn't feel nauseous and I already noticed a huge difference in what I could do.

By the Way - this isn't us ...

Yeah, can I just say that I NEVER in a million years thought I'd EVER have a male trainer, let alone a pro wrestling personal trainer. Who I have to allow do things like ... oh I don't know .... this kind of stretch with me.

But for some reason I don't care. I don't even care when I'm in the middle of my workout and there's men around (very close by the way) probably watching my touche flex and jiggle. I was surrounded by two yesterday, not including my trainer, and my head was only in my workout. I think this is really cool.

Anyways, today I must now live with a brand new soreness, but to be honest I really am thankful for the ability to renew and change my body. God creates us beautifully and we take that for granted and abuse that too often.
