Day 219…

10.23.12

It’s an early-rise morning for me as today marks my entry back into the world of working out.  I found a trainer that was recommended to me via Team in Training who has expertise in working not only with runners, but also with cancer survivors.  I’m excited and a bit nervous as I hope I can keep up with the program that she is going to put me on…

The workout starts right away once I get to the gym.  We start with jump rope (can’t tell you the last time I did that), followed by push-ups, sit-ups and TRX work (upper and lower body).  Thankfully she gives me a minute or two to recover and then straight into more lower body work with lunges and squats.  We finish up with some triceps lifts and pull-ups.  Somehow I survive.  I am already terrified of how sore I’m going to be tomorrow – though it is the good kind of sore; the kind where you know that you had a great workout…showering up and heading to the office…

Starving and grabbing anything I can find in the fridge.  I’m eating some yogurt, a banana and then a cliff bar.  I already know that I’ll be hungry all day because of the morning workout.  Jumping right into meetings.  It’s Tuesday, so as you all know, that is usually my busiest day in terms of internal meetings. Getting through the morning as best I can and quickly breaking for lunch before diving right back into the rest of the day…

As the day wears on, my worst fears are starting to come true – I’m already feeling the tightness in my body from the workout (and the past 3 days of intense activities).  I stretch as often as I can…finishing up the day and getting ready to meet and old college friend for dinner and drinks to catch up and talk about a potential business alliance…so great to see Louise.  It has been 4 or 5 years since we have last seen one another, but as it is with all old friends, we catch up quickly and get along great…even if the business end of things doesn’t work out, it is great to have her back in my life and I’m really happy to see all of the great things she has going on – including getting married!…

I head home, walk the pup and climb straight to bed.  I’m totally exhausted…

Until tomorrow…
