I SIGNED UP FOR PERSONAL TRAINING, I AM SO EXCITED!
Decided to get some professional training to help me get into shape the golf season! Won’t it be nice to start the season out strong? I am pumped!
Night before first session: FEELING HESITANT…
Went to weight lifting class on Monday (first time since back from FL) and I am so stiff and sore! Also thinking about how I am 63 and he is 23, he is fit & I am not, he is quiet & I am not… will we get along? So many thoughts pass thru your mind before you try something new. I tell myself it’s going to be great. Hoping the PT session will go ok since I’m already in some pain; but so excited anticipating what’s to come. I am telling myself that I can do this! Yes I can!
Week 1 Session 1: I CAN DO THIS!
You always wonder if you’re going to click when you meet someone, right? No worries here, Joey is easy to get to know and I immediately see he had my agenda in mind with each series we do! This is going to be great!
Will I get stiff and sore? Yes, but I feel this really helped wake up some extra sets of muscles that really needed it! I decided to end my session with stretching in a yoga class! Big win – I made it through my first session and I liked both the trainer and my the experience! I wouldn’t say that I like the rowing machine, but I can see myself using it in the future! What a great overall workout!
Can’t wait for a long soak with Epsom salts in the tub and pop an Advil before bed!
Week 1 session 2: ADVIL IS MY FRIEND
We did the same workout as the first session which I was grateful for! (It’s easier to do something that’s a little familiar!). I soaked in the tub after my last session and it really helped with easing soreness. I feel like I won’t get as sore now…hard to believe but I already feel stronger!
Stay tuned to read more about Deb’s journey! 🙂
