I finally did it!!
Today in pump class.....
I pushed myself beyond the fear of the purple weights (5kgs) and loaded up a bar with them. For a few weeks I've been contemplating them, eyeing them up coyly as i stack on my blues (2.5kg) and reds (1.25kg)...aproaching them cautiously, hesitating and running away like a scared school girl....
Everytime I dodged them I felt guilty during my class knowing that I could have pushed myself that little bit harder and lifted that little bit heavier. Even last week I loaded on 4 blues rather than just popping on 2 purples...It was as though I had a fear of purple!! A fear of commiting to a heavier weight as I told my self I could weight down after a few reps it it got too much....Not today though! Today I committed to purple from the start...I lifted, I pressed and I pushed myself hard!!
And it felt fantastic!!!
Purple in my new favourite colour and my number is most definitly 5!!!
