Merciless Marisa

Marisa showed no mercy as she threw ten minute circuits at us. So not only did we do all of our swinging, we also did planks, push-ups, lunges, step-ups and we dipped for the benefit of our triceps.

We bumped it up as we did the clean and press and I use the term we lightly. As I attempted to do the clean, I thought about yoga class when the teacher says come into your expression of the pose which means that those who can do it, do it and the rest of us take it in stages.

Towards the end of our fourth circuit, Marisa told us to loosen up with the two-hand swing. I was incredulous. Take a break with the two-hand? Seriously?

As I struggled and cursed my way through class, I realized that I was on my ninth consecutive day of exercise because I didn't rest like I normally do on Friday and it was hard to rest on Saturday with so much free time and so much nice weather but, now, even my ankles ache. Epsom salt here I come. Guess that's why it's important to get rest days in...

After class, I went to Trader Joe's then walked across the parking lot to Target. When I got back to my car, I saw a box of watermelons outside of Trader Joe's so I put the Target bags in the car and went after one of those watermelons. I've been having watermelon envy so it's time...

On Friday, I tried to get a picture of my sweaty self after Hot Yoga but I only had my Ipod and it didn't do the sweat justice but I like this crazy picture of my arm.

This Is My Arm. This Is My Arm on Weights.
