Day 85: #TRX training @TricoCentre

“Pain is nothing compared to what it feels like to quit.”

Tonight was cross training, so I decided to check out the non-Bootcamp version of TRX. As I suspected, it was much better (at least for now, whilst I train for half-marathon). The instructor pushed us enough so you could feel the burn, but not enough so that I will be in major pain the next few days (or at least I don’t think so).

We did lunges, planks, sit ups, mountain climbers, triceps, biceps, jacks and other stuff I can’t even remember now. It was an intense work out but I really liked that she encouraged micro-breaks so that we didn’t hurt ourselves. I’m still not very coordinated with the ropes, in fact, my feet came out a few times. Actually, the guy next to me was having the same issue and he was much more fit than me, so I didn’t feel so bad. I absolutely hated the single leg planks with leg raises. Honestly. Can you say PAIN?! But I wasn’t constantly checking the clock to see if it was time to go, so I feel like that was a huge win for me. And though I enjoyed the challenge of the bootcamp style TRX, while I’m training this version of class suits my body and mind much more.

After we finished the sixty minute class, I hopped onto the rowing machine for about ten minutes. I generally enjoy rowing, but tonight I was bored. And truth be told, I couldn’t wait to get home to watch MTV’s Catfish. I know. Sad.

Anyway, that’s it for tonight. A run tomorrow I guess.

Hope everyone is happy and healthy out there!

  1. There is no way I am suspending myself from flimsy ropes and doing this. I am THE clumsiest person you could meet. I’m actually surprised I have not fallen over running yet. I’ll stick to P90X for my upper body! I gotta tell ya, I do love a push up…. Maybe we can #pushupaday????

    • I am clumsy too and not graceful at all. I have never done P90X…. that looks like punishment. I think we could definitely do #PushUpADay … when do we start?

      • Let’s start tomorrow, my time. I’ll tweet when I am done… I’m gonna start with full push ups, on toes. Wide spread arms and go for 5 to start with. Its gonna be tough šŸ™‚ What do you want to start with?

      • Hmmmm… okay that sounds good, I’ll do the same. I don’t know if I can do five really well, but we’ll see tomorrow! Yahoo! This is going to be fun/hurt šŸ™‚ And if we’re good at it, maybe make December the official challenge of every day?
