Get Up

Gym Jones Women’s Foundation Program

Day 2

Ingredients: Turkish get-ups

Recipe: Do lots

And by lots, I mean lots. The first rep of the second set was already more than I had ever done at one time in a workout. I had to break them up into sets because I can only count so high before I mentally wander off into a field of poppies.

I only completed half of the prescribed reps before my hip flexors started to hurt. After last summer’s nightmarish hip flexor incident, the last thing I want to do is hurt myself like that again.

Yesterday’s pain on the rower was completely different than today’s pain. You aren’t going to injure yourself on the rower, you just need to learn to accept the hurt and deal with it. For me, today’s workout was more a test of my brain than my heart, methinks.
