What another great week it has been, it started out with a fine that needed to be paid. So on Monday Kim put me through a workout of burpees, alternate Cleans and even more burpees, until I reached 200 burpees. After Kim kicked my ass, I ran on the hamster wheel. It was a great workout! But the week did not start out all good; I started to feel a cold coming on.
Tuesday at Alive was a learning experience, When I arrived Damir was putting together our workout plan, when Ryan arrived, he asked Ryan what he want to do, Ryan being Ryan looked at me, smiled and said treadmill! Damir was so excited he threw the writing pad he was using on desk and jumped up and look at me, laughed and said “Sam pick a number between 1 and 5” “5 of course” Sam replied. Now I knew when she said 5, this has going to be one bad ass workout. Damir pointed at the hamster wheel and “said Brian jump on. So I climbed on and he said “what speed do you run at?” I said “3.5” he set it to 3.2 and said “run at this speed for 5 mins, then jump off and switch with Ryan” now I have done 3.5 for 1 min & he wants me to go for 5mins at 3.2, I was not sure I could do it but I was able to do it of most of the session, the first time I got off we did kickboxing up and down the hallway, the second time I hopped off, Damir was Busy talking to someone so Clayton stepped in and after doing alternate cleans I had to push Clayton up the hallway, although Damir and Clayton weigh the same, but I struggled to push him up the hallway. At the end of the hallway I push press with the red kettle bells, then I had to push Clay back down the hallway, it was even harder to do, not sure why but my left knee was hurting so I kept pushing Clayton into the wall, but he was a good sport and laughed it off. We kept going on and off the treadmill for an hour. It was a great session. It would have gone a little easier, if my cold was not bothering me.
Wednesday, I was so sick from my cold that after work I just went home to bed. Thursday I had a very rough day at work. On my way out I was picking up some items, while I was going through the till I gave in and grabbed a pack of Ferrero Rocher, as I was waiting for the bus I texted Kim and told her I was thinking about eating them and taking the burpees. She talked me down from eating them and we decided that I would give them to her after my session. Ryan and I session was good, but I don’t remember much from it. There was a very hard Kettle bell set at the end of the session. After the session on the way out I hand the Ferrero Rocher over to Kim, I was thinking she would just throw them away. No she open them and handed one to me and said “ open it, Smell it now crush it” I did that for all Three chocolates, my hands were full of chocolates goo, I went back into alive to wipe it off, Kim followed me to make sure I did not lick it off. Thanks Kim for the support, I needed that.
Friday was awesome; I was off so I went in early and did a hamster wheel workout. I learned on Tuesday that I could push harder on the hamster wheel. So I put the speed at 4.0 for the program and was able to totally rock it. I was on the hamster wheel for 2 hours. After the hamster wheel workout, I weighed in. The scale was very good to me; I weighed in at 384 down 6 more pounds. That means that during January I lost 16 pounds! Or 4 pounds a week basically!! It was a great Week!!
