Wednesday, May 16, 2012Peter has a friend who is a trainer, and Peter has hired this friend to whip him into shape. The friend kindly offered to train Peter and I for the same price as just Peter, which totally undermined my frugal excuse for not having a trainer - doh! So Monday I went and suffered with Peter. Then yesterday I suffered (headache) and today I'm suffering (headache + muscle pain). Sometimes I'm able to embrace the suffering and be all 'yeah - hard core! pain for the gain!' or somesuch, but sometimes I really just want to stay in bed and make small pitiful moaning noises. I really hope I don't need to raise my arm above my head at all today.
At some point in the workout - when I was on the rowing machine - the trainer told me to take it easy, he didn't want me to pass out. I think perhaps I was bright red at the time. It was nice that he was concerned, but also kind of funny because I must have looked pretty terrible for a trainer to tell me to take it easy instead of telling me to go-go-go!
Anyway, we'll see how long this goes for. I'm keen to get back some of the muscle I lost (I haven't been working out much for the past year), but man.
