Today was the start of my new workout routine and it felt good. Mostly because my body is still sore from this weekend (10 mile race + 20 minutes of arm strengthening = super soreness) so I think it was happy to have a break from running.

Although I designed a workout that was a little harder than I expected:


One of the things I have a really hard time with is “digging deep.” I think from marathon training, I have a mentality that I need to keep a steady pace and push through the entire workout where I feel like strength training and HIIT workouts are more about doing the max NOW. Because you will always find more. I tried to focus on this this morning and limit my rest breaks, but man, those V-Ups BURN. Is it just me or do those babies really make a difference?!

We’ll see if I pushed myself hard enough. I guess I’ll know later this afternoon whether I’m sore or not. Or if my stomach muscles are jiggling from fatigue as I sit at my desk all day…

I realized yesterday afternoon that I forgot to announce a winner for the PRO Compression giveaway! Andddd the winner is:

How do you know if you’re “digging deep”? Is it something you struggle with?
