Ok, this is going to be long!

I know, it has been almost a WEEK! I am trying to do this blogging thing after each training session, hopefully I can keep up!

Thursday was SO MUCH better! I think being sick on Tuesday just really killed me!
We started out doing the same warm ups: run aorund the track twice, skipping (forward and backward), stretching muscles as we walk, lunges etc.

OK, I wasn't this serious!!

After we warmed up, Ryan took us to the dark cardio room and had us on the treadmills. We were all super sore...he only had me on a 4.0 incline at 3.2mph. I felt like a loser because it seemed so small but he said it was ok for me -- good thing because I was TIRED!

We did that for something like 15 minutes and then he had us do more lunges, kettle bell, maybe squats, and the kick our hand thingie...or maybe it was the reach for out legs while we do crunches...don't quite remember.

After burning our legs off, we went to where the machines are and did some arm weights, push ups, and planks. Do you KNOW what a plank is? Do you KNOW how hard it is to keep almost 300 pounds of Tessa off of the floor and up on my hands and toes? Pretty hard. And after the third set of three for 10 seconds, my arms were a bit wobbly...

Another thing, I had to learn how to do it right! Ryan is always yelling at me "TESSA! butt DOWN!" So finally I yelled back "THAT ISN'T NATURAL" (insert embarrased face here)

This is the way I wanted to do it:

(It's the ghetto in me)

This is the right way:

So yeah, that was Thursday! Saturday is a whole 'nother story! Oh, here it is real quick!

Saturday we got a bunch of us together so there were 12. We went into the studio and got out steppers and mats and did a fun little circuit training. I swear some people cried, others quit. I WANTED TO KEEP GOING! (yeah, not during the middle part but after we were done of course)

It was good music and fun! I did have an injury though. I was doing push ups and my arms gave out on me and BAM! right on my knee! Oh well!

So I still get way nervous before each training session. I'm nervous about tomorrow, always concerned that I won't be able to "make it" scared that I will have to give up, that it will be too hard.

(oh and a mini confession: I had a Baja Fresh burrito for dinner *GASP*)

The torture will get easier (including the planks)! Give it time. I know you can do it!

I think stylish leg warmers will improve your energy levels ;)
