I showed up at the gym today, with my ass dragging. Last day of anti biotics and it’s raining and that always makes me hurt. I also missed my RA meds last week because I was sick which means I hurt more than normal. Captain Cathy comes down, all pumped up from the seminar she went to last week about running a gym like hers. I always get nervous when she has been to a seminar because it means new things!! She grilled me (in a good way!) about why I’m there, am I getting the results I want and going forward what do I expect.
Then she let me know her expectations. She wants to kick it up a bit with my training and work through some of the issues with my knee and not overcompensate for them, but rather push me through them. Like I always kick the right leg out to the side when raising it, instead of just raising it. Yeah, until today when she stood with a pole next to the leg, preventing me from kicking to the side. She gave me quite a bit of core work which is what I told her I would like to see.
I worked harder today. I didn’t give up on the moves as soon as I’ve been doing. I think that I’ve been expecting that I would get results even if I just went through the motions. Today was different. It was more work, more pushing and I have to tell you that I can feel it all now, but it’s a good feeling.
I might not think so in the morning. I will report back to you.
