is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites
Week 3 was a recovery week...nice! Although I am still feeling the passion...I'm not really feeling the energy these days...not enough daylight!
On Tuesday, I decided to try the spinning class at my gym. I really enjoyed it and I hope to go at least once a week. Also, I will be meeting with a personal trainer at the gym on Friday and she will do a few tests on me (?) so that she can better prepare my program. Then next Friday, she will spend one hour working on this program with me. I felt a little pressured to buy a few individual sessions! But, since I really do better when I have a program to follow and I also like that program to be modified every few months, I agreed to some individual sessions. However, they tried to get me to buy 2 hours a months (a test and a new program each month)! No way...not going to happen...it's not like I don't do anything else. I finally decided to go for 2 hours every 3 months (for a total of 8 hours). It's worth a try, but if I don't feel that it's worth it well I'll have no problem saying no next year!
Do you guys ever feel pressured into paying for individual sessions at the gym?
Overall, I had a good week, but I was really busy and I missed my 30 minute run on Thursday. Not really a big deal. I used to get anxious if I had to miss a run on my program, especially when I first started running. I'd worry that when it came time to do the next session I'd have a hard time and I thought it might have an impact on race day :) No more! I've run too many races where I had to miss months of training due to injury and still managed to maintain my normal pace on race day. I even became a little too zen about the whole thing at some point...I think I'm finding a balance finally.
Nothing much to report this week...today was a 16.5Km long run and I continue to feel strong. Although, I was really tired the last few days. Yet, despite the lower energy level, my running is going well!
Next week, I'll tell you all about the Winter Pentathlon we have registered for as a family...it'll be great fun I'm sure!! :)
Have a great week! Cheers!
