Day 3: When I Hate Training

It's Friday. I got up this morning and did NOT want to do my morning session. Did NOT.

The only thing that seemed acceptable in my mind was sitting at the kitchen counter, drinking coffee and catching up on social media. Ok, that was my second choice. My first choice was returning to bed and sleeping an extra hour.

But I did what I always do when I don't feel like it. Yep, I did it anyway. I've blogged about this before. And given some tips for overcoming that lack of motivation.

This morning was pretty much a nice easy hike with 4 bricks (yes, real bricks) in my back pack. 50 minutes or so, just walking at a decent pace and listening to The School of Greatness with Lewis Howes. Pretty inspiring stuff.

Anyway... thank the Good Lord for my husband/coach/training partner. Wednesday I REALLY didn't want to go to the weight room after school. Really DID NOT want to go. AT ALL. But I went. And he pretty much grabbed me with a twinkle in his eye and said, "Come with me." And here is what we did... (on a day when I HATED TRAINING... until I did it. And it was fun!)

5 rounds...
1 Legless rope climb (only about 10 feet)
15 yard sprint
30 yd "buddy" (40 lb wrestling dummy) carry
15 yard spring
10- 75 lb push press
40 yd heavy bag carry (60 lb)

Then:
3 rope clims w/legs (20 ft)

Then...
5 rounds...
200 M row
5 box jumps (24 in)
7 TTB (toes to bar)
9 hand release push ups

And THIS is what my husband and I do for fun.
