Value for money, that’s what I get with Outside Fit. It may well be 45 minutes on a Tuesday evening but I feel the love from this session for days to come.
I feel it as I get into my car immediately afterwards. Oh the ache of tired quads as I ease into the driver’s side. Thank goodness for the warmth of heated seats to comfort the soreness.
I feel it as I move around the house preparing dinner and doing all those jobs that we do each evening. Feeling that love, that Outside Fit love.
I feel it the next morning putting on mascara. Who knew mascara was that heavy? Oh the ache! Oh the DOMS! Oh the pain!
I feel it in my office as I type, file, tutor, answer the phone. The phone? Oh it’s so hard to hold that weight to my ear. Who filled this phone with lead?
I continue to feel that Outside Fit love for the next day, the next evening and right on into the next day, day after day and days to come…
Squats. Lunges, Wall Sits, Sprints, again and again and again. Planks, Intervals, Step Ups, Burpees, again and again and again. Push ups, Triceps Dips, Pull ups, again and again and again. Torture. Agony. Pain.
And a PT with eyes in the back of her head? Get your bum down Anne-Marie!!!
Yes PT, I weakly reply.
Is it 6:45pm yet?
I’m feeling that Outside Fit Love ALL. THE. TIME. All the time!
It’s supposed to get easier! I think to myself. But no, it never does. Our PT has a way of rotating the workouts so that all muscle groups are lulled into a false sense of security. Just when we think we’re reaching that level of fitness and think YES! We are conquering Outside Fit! Our PT has a new more intense way of executing those humble, seemingly routine exercises. And then the love comes. That love comes in again big time.
There have been times when, as I’ve eased myself into the car, a smile has slowly erupted over my face. I’m not sore tonight! I think to myself. Wow! I turn up the radio and sing all the way home! But then as I’m about to get out of the car, after the 30 minute drive home, there it is. The love. Yes the love is there, ache, stiffness, oh no….I’m feeling that Outside Fit love – again!
And yet I still keep going. Each week I’m there. Why? Because we runners know that cross training makes us stronger. We need that core fitness to carry us through hours of running training. That love makes us stronger and keeps us running.
I love Outside Fit. I’m being trained by a skilled and caring professional PT – her energy and happiness are infectious. I love that it helps to tone my muscles and make me a stronger runner. I love Outside Fit!
Happy running 🙂
