After several consecutive workouts with Nancy I’m back to full-speed at the gym with no pain in my knee. It felt like a long road, I felt like I was derailed for a long time. I lost momentum and I got worried I may not get it back. NOT TRUE! I’m back with gusto and I’m so glad to be making the most of the hour I have with Nancy twice weekly and I’m so glad to really be pushing myself.
When I hurt my knee I stopped pushing for fear I’d have huge setbacks. My upper body certainly loved the additional attention but I was really missing the full-body workout I was accustomed to having with Nancy during our Personal Coaching sessions at Healthtrax in Hanover.
We’ve been spending a lot of time strengthening my core – we did 200 crunches on Friday! That’s a new record for me and I’m so proud of it! We use the stability ball for the crunches and I like that a lot.
Oh and this week is extra special too! Rob is joining our workout on Tuesday! I can’t wait to do some team exercises with him – it will be lots of fun. I had to promise him I wouldn’t make him shoot baskets…the last time we went to Healthtrax together I smoked him in a shoot-out contest! Wooohoo! He still gets grief over that from people, including me! Ha!
We’ll definitely be taking photos and videos of our session together. I can’t think of a way to make working out any more fun than doing it with a friend. :)
