Day 558...aPRiL FooL's?...
I've been on antibiotics since Saturday. Yesterday was awful...the peak...but today I feel like I've turned a corner and I'm headin back towards good health...FINALLY. I taught the 6AM class and then went back up to workout myself. P joined me.
I wasn't too worried because it seemed very "LEG" oriented. The problem was that J had put "braced" squats in there. I've never done these, but it's basically holding a weight out in front of yourself with locked arms and then squatting. It was very difficult to hold any significant amount of weight like that.
It was tough and I grunted and groaned louder than normal, but in the end...not a single person finished faster than me. Everyone worked hard, but honestly...no one was in the same shape I was in when they were done. I was struggling to breath...making noises I've never heard myself make. I wondered if this heinous workout was really an April Fool's Day "joke"! It WAS really hard...but I AM proud of the effort that I put in today.
