Day 2 Crossfit
WEEEEEEEEW eee! Even more sore today than I was yesterday. I kinda like it though is that wierd? Yesterdays workout was harder than the day before. I’m feeling sore all over today, not sure why because we didn’t do a full body workout.
I was kinda having a blah day yesterday. I was SUPER tired, and had a head ache for most of the day. When I got home I was not in the mood to go work out but I knew i’d feel better after. Sure enough after the workout I felt awesome. Sure I was sopping wet and my muscles began to tighten, but I felt awesome! Here is what we did…
800M run (.50 miles)
Nat: Avrg speed 6.2 Dave Avg Speed: 6.9
25 KTE (Knees touch elbows)
15 Box jumps
Repeat 4 times!
Wow. This was not easy. The runs weren’t too bad the first time through but after the second and third we were both fighting for air. The KTE’s were killer. It takes every muscle in your body to pull your knees up to touch your elbows, and when your done doing that, jumping up and down onto the box tops it all off!
We were sweating like crazy. We didn’t finish with abs because the KTE’s were enough for us. We stretched and talked about the workout and let our heart rates recover a bit before heading home.
When we got in the car these were dave exact words..”I really like these workouts, they aren’t too long and are super intense. I want to die while i’m doing it but I feel awesome after.”
I’m so glad he likes it…because I love it. And I love doing it together. When I was with my trainer I wasn’t able to slack or take too much time to rest, and it feels the same with Dave. I want to keep up with him and finish in good time so I know i’m pushing myself harder than I would if I was on my own and I really like that!
Day 2 was great. We are taking a rest day today and again on Sunday. When we start back up on Monday I think we will take rest days on Fridays and Sundays. Dave’s muscles are really sore and since he is usually in such great shape working out every day he isnt used to feeling sore. Me on the other hand, it seems like every time I met with my trainer I was in for some pain the next day. I have so many muscles that aren’t developed that its easier for me to get sore than him, but since he hadn’t worked out in over a month, he is feeling it big time! I’m feeling it too, but I’m kinda used to it. :)
We took our measurements yesterday. After we were finished dave looked at the numbers and said…”hey our measurements are about the same”…..some of yours are bigger. I immediately looked at him and said…”uh why would you want to point that out……” he looked at me with a worried look on his face and said…”i dont know”. ha ha ha it was funny. I laughed and told him I was kidding! I didn’t care. Hello I am 5’5 and he is 6’4. Yes some of our measurements were similar, but i’m not going to even entertain the thought of letting that bother me. It doesn’t make sense. (plus he is lean and has long lean legs so it’s not like it’s a bad thing).
The truth is though, in the past that might have made me feel bad and feel self concise or insecure. I might have gotten a little bugged at him for pointing that out. I used to be so touchy and worried about anything he or anyone else would say about me and my body. I would ask him a question and if i didn’t get what I thought was the right response I automatically made myself feel bad. I constantly thought he thought things about me that I now know are not true. The truth is….. He thinks I’m beautiful.He thinks I skinny He loves me the way I am. And he’s thought it all along. I just never believed it until now. Want to know why? Because I didn’t think it about myself. Until I started to focus on positive good uplifting thoughts and work on giving myself complements, I couldn’t believe that he or anyone else may actually be telling the truth.
Unfortunately as women I think we all do this to a certain extent! We are WAY to critical of ourself. Our poor husbands or BF’s end up having to walk around on egg shells because they are worried that they might not say the right thing. Can they read our minds…NO! So why should we expect them to? Next time your husband boyfriend or whoever gives you a compliment or tells you something positive about yourself, instead or asking them if they mean it or analyzing how they said it to try and figure out what they really meant….just BELIEVE it. You are beautiful, and you deserve to believe it!
Do you have a hard time believing compliments about yourself?
