Met with my trainer today for another circuit workout. Wow. I feel like these sessions are somehow getting more challenging yet easier to accomplish. That may not even make sense and I’m not sure if I even understand it. Today we did a workout with just one kettle bell. That’s it. One tiny little piece of equipment + one awesome personal trainer = one heck of a workout. The thing I learned about the kettlebell is that it is incredibly versatile. Did a couple variations on swings, crunches, and my personal favorite (NOT) rows followed by hip raises (ouch). Powered through it like a champ. I thought we were using a 10lb kettlebell until I looked at my journal just now. The thing was 20lbs! Yay, go me! I truly feel that these sessions are improving my fitness and are a nice compliment to the lifting and running. And they’re fun. Well, at least now looking back at it I can say it was fun. Toward the end of the last circuit I can tell you I would have had something else to say about it. 🙂 Maybe I should rename the post to “Kettlebell Superhappyfuntime” but it just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Now to round out the week with one more 5 mile run!
In other news I’ve registered for 2 more races since I thought about cutting back. I may need to seek professional help.
