Trainers work...I love it! So far I've lost 4 lbs...feel great...look great. Its alllllllllllll good! For me, I've always been able to motivate myself to run. Mainly just getting the miles in...occasionally trying to speed things up. But Mr. Trainer says I have to do intervals...and all that good stuff. Things I know I should have been doing..but just never did. Now that I'm held accountable...its in full swing. Not only am I getting stronger, my runs are getting faster, my body is responding because its not the same steady-state runs I do all the time. I also realized that before..my runs were very comfortable for me. I was never pushing the pace like I should have...but thats all changing...NOW!
Weight training for me was always sporadic. Do this 4 times..try that 5 times..never knew how much or what I did the time before. This structured workout is really helping me to make sure I'm achieving my goals of getting stronger. I write everything down..have a plan..and tackle it! So far so good....stay tuned :)
p.s. theres talk of another half marathon April 4th...IU (indiana university).. exxxxxxxciting!
