I feel...better today. I can't say I'm giggling and spreading sunshine and rainbows wherever I go, but I'm much better than I was last night. My workout went better too...I still struggled a bit with motivation...but I was definitely more focused than last night.
There's nothing exciting to report. The single arm KB swings were harder than I thought. They made my forearms burn. The burpees with a star jump were bee-yotches as usual, but I did them and with really good...really high jumps. The best part was that while I was talking to a trainer from my old gym, R, I decided to try climbing the rope and I almost made it all the way up. Yea! I got scared that I wouldn't be able to get down because my hands were hurting and I was tired so I stopped about 3/4 of the way up. It was a definite improvement. I guess all those "rope pulls" J has made me do are paying off. It took all I had to finish with KTEs and leg lifts, but I did them...the best I could.
I'm glad my workout is done for the day...but mostly I'm glad I feel better.
