Ouch. Ouch. Ouch (repeat!)

Yesterday was my first ever personal training session. It's taken me this long to write about it. I still hurt!

Maz (even sounds like a PT's name!) was brilliant. She was just what I wanted! The session was hard. It pushed my boundaries. It showed me I can work harder than I ever thought I could.

I think it was the kettlebell swings that did me in. That or the donkey kicks. Geez I hated the donkey kicks.

If you've never trained with a PT set yourself a goal of doing it -even if it's just once. You learn so much. Not just how hard you can push - but about why you exercise that way - the technique - the way your body works.

And somehow having someone lying on the ground, in your face telling you "DO NOT DROP. DO NOT DROP. YOU ARE TOUGHER THAN THIS" really helps when you are shaking in plank position.

For the first time ever in a workout I thought I would throw up. Not sure if that is a good thing. But I know it means I worked out HARD.As in 370cal in a 30 min workout hard!

I will definately go back as often as finances and travel allow (it's an hour away!)
Sucker for punishment I am.
