Just a quick update today.
I went to the gym for my Back and Triceps workout this morning. It was a lot harder than I expected. The triceps workouts I like to do, and too stubborn to give up, all require me to be standing up.
It was hard, but it was so rewarding at the end of the workout when I looked back and realized I conquered yet another challenge.
I kept on thinking about this a bit: FOCUS!! And boy, did it take a lot of focusing to get through today’s workout!
I gotta say, my core was engaged to the max like never before… certainly not like any back and triceps session from before!
One addition, I realized my man purse solution for the water bottle was pretty extremely efficient for 2 reasons:
- I run out of water pretty fast and waste a lot of time hopping around the gym to refill the water.
- Yesterday, when I went to refill the water, there was a couple of drops of water on the floor and I almost slipped!
I came across my CamelBack last night and decided to use it at the gym even if I looked like a fool… and it reminded me of this:
“It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
For love, for your dream,
For the adventure of being alive.” – excerpt from the poem The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer.
And so, I went on with my CamelBack to the gym and, though, I didn’t look around I was sure I got some interesting looks. Oh well, I got my workout in and I am looking forward to tomorrow’s Shoulders workout.
