12WBT -1

I. Am. Nearly. Dead.  Well, that might be a slight exaggeration.  The day started off with my very first ever PT session.  I was lulled into a false sense of security - we started off with talking about my goals and reasons for wanting to achieve them (yay for the pre-season task covering this).  We also talked about the exercise I plan to do during the week (number of workouts etc).  Again, yay for me having read through the 12WBT program.  Also covered food.  This was rather funny as I surprised the PT by my list of "I don't eat".  It's not really that long - just broad-ranged (no seafood or nuts - I react to them; no avocado - eww).  Poor PT.  Anyhoo, after this, it was out for training.  I have to confess, I did throw up once.  To be fair, I'm still recovering from my man 'flu (or, for those who are more savvy - my URTI).  I actually think I'm a wee bit too soft, too ;)

Started the PT session with some running, stretching and sit ups.  It was when we started on the circuit (of which I only managed about 4 stations before chucking up).  It was cut short at this point as I was fair knackered.  Finished off with a bit more of a chat about food intake etc.  I don't mind this as it's all learnin' for me.

The rest of the day was a lot more mundane.  Tidy of the house (Wifey did this - I went out and finished water blasting the balcony).  What we did do, though, was to pop out to the supermarket - with the 12WBT shopping list.  We had quite a lot of stuff on the list anyway, so it wasn't as bad as we thought it might've been.  It's good having the list all prepared for us...though we're used to getting groceries for Sat-Fri and got caught out having nothing for last night...hence the take out.  Not sure what tonight will bring...

So.  Even though my posts are technically a day behind (i.e., this is written on Sunday but reflects on Saturday) there's one more sleep until the program begins.  Bring it on I say :D

Last night's dinner: We were naughty and had chinese takeout :(

The Book of General Ignorance fact: Loofahs don't come from the sea.  They're a kind of gourd (therefore growing on trees) that are considered a tasty snack in Asia.

  1. Awesome job on the PT session. Never mind the puke it is a testament to how hard you went. Just discovered your blog and am going to really look forward to reading it.
