Having set PBs in both the marathon and then the 5k within 9 days of each other I knew this to be a wise choice. Little did I know what awaited me at the gym however.
My buddy is a personal trainer and also trains to participate in body sculpting contests. She has been nagging me to follow her routine at least once for ages now and it seemed as if today was the day. What followed as an intensive 40 mins of box jumps, burpies, squats and sit-ups.
I thought I was fit and I stood up to it okay, but by the end I was slightly wrecked. Aside from the different training muscles, it was great to be able to get the mind to do different things to. I'm a bit tender, but always good to push oneself out the comfort zone and try something else.
