“Learning to push beyond your comfort zone is an
ongoing lesson, not a one-time thing.”
So after Marcy almost killed us again in Core Cardio yesterday morning (it’s what we show up for, and she likes it a lot), I was maaaaaybe thinking of taking it a little eeensy bit easy this morning? But then I realized: One doesn’t simply “take it easy” with Vesna.
In fact, she herself said, “If it’s not difficult, if it’s not a challenge for you, then you won’t get results. You can’t just do it the easy way or repeat the same things over and over.” This, Vesna is telling me as she’s setting the weight for some tricep pushdowns at a level I would never choose for myself. She’s right, of course, and I know she’s right, so I did my best to rise to the challenge.
Some things are easier than others, of course — I actually increased the weight on a move that targeted the quads and hamstrings (I’ve got quads for days), but I really did struggle with those triceps (and some flyes we did later). Everybody’s got their thing, right?
That’s what’s great about AbsoluteFIT — the challenges are different for all of us, but we’re all in it together, pushing ourselves as hard as we can!
