That moment when making your health a priority takes on a whole lot ofmeaning...
And so, today we had our final morning OnRamp at the box; the 12th out of a 12.
One question that I was asked by a few people... "Are you glad it's over"?
Well, it took some thinking but I did come to somewhat of a conclusion:
I am because I no longer have those three 'hour' slots taken per week in my calendar. I am because the idea of not feeling a bit beat up (all the time) is kinda' soothing, I cannot lie.
...and then there's the flip side of the coin.
I am not also!
I am not because I am going to miss seeing the welcoming smiles at that place.
I am not happy that it's over because I no longer have the 'high priority' to make myself get out of my 'physical' comfort zone to evolve as an athlete.
I am not happy because although there was a little bit of discomfort and sometimes pain; these last 4wks have made me feel strong and happy.
We repeated our first work out today.
20push ups (assisted for me)
03/07/16 my time was 7:49 and I felt beat down. It killed me to see the harsh reality of just how strong I am not. ...of just how much I've let my body Oxidate
by not putting it into functional movement the way that it is meant to be. 😞
I had a pretty tough time being slapped with those harsh realities.
Today 04/01/16 my time was 5:47!!
I SHAVED OFF 2min AND 2sec!
(...and yes, I am counting the sec too)
But even more extraordinary than the MUCH better time...
I actually ended the work out and could not believe that it was over... I felt strong; as if I had more left in me to give!!
FOUR weeks of determination to commit to strengthening myself physically and mentally.
I am looking forward to staying on track and putting myself at the top of that priority list for a long time to come.
