Day 136...more FUN at the park...
Okay, so Saturday was great! The problem is...I am such a worrier...such a "Doubting Thomas"...that when I have a great day like that...I worry about the next time because I'm afraid it won't measure up. I know it's dumb and unproductive and torturous...but it's what I do. Needless to say, I was a little nervous that today would be a "let down"...not because I thought I would fail or because I thought J wouldn't do a good job, but because I would have such high expectations...expectations that couldn't be met.
J texted to say we may go to the park, which was good to know, because the workout pants I was gonna wear would be all wrong for a park day. I changed, got to the gym, and we headed for the park. As soon as I ran around to "warm up", J taught me 2 new exercises (Korean JJs and MFs)...they were KILLERS! My legs were begging for mercy. I don't like new stuff...and I didn't exactly "master" the exercises, but I did it and it hurt...which is good. It wasn't the hardest workout ever, but the individual exercises were challenging and I was DEFINITELY feelin the burn more than a time or two. After he taught me the new exercises and I tried them out, we added a 10 lb weighted vest...that cranked it up a bit.
Anyways, long story short...I was worried that I would be disappointed today, because Saturday was so great...but I wasn't disappointed at all. I had a great time. There were challenging exercises...a good breeze...and the company wasn't bad either. What more could a girl want out of a day at the park?!? I worried for no reason. Today more than measured up. Today was fun.
