No, it’s not about my ankle anymore.
It’s not even about running.
Yesterday morning, I saw an announcement for a “Legs, bums, tums” class at the gym and in the spur of the moment I decided to sign up and go for a second workout yesterday. “LBT” – I haven’t seen “LBT” classes since the 90s (maybe early 00s). Isn’t it all Pilates and Yoga nowadays?
I thought that might be a good and easy cross-training class to take while I am taking a short running break… I should have known better.
- I kept falling off the exercise ball.
- My toes just about escaped the 5kg dumbbells that I dropped.
- I even rolled off the exercise mat. Don’t ask.
You betcha I’ll be back next week.
Fearless and persistent!
And my coach keeps telling me I need to work my upper body and do strength training. Finally I know why. No more falling off the exercise ball for this kid!
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face…You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
