Scolded by the trainer
Wednesday, May 14, 2008
Last night I was scolded by my trainer. He doesn't want me doing anymore 5k as apparently it's hindering our training. Umm I didn't know that and nobody told me what exactly we are training for. I really felt horrible and it still bothers me. He informed me that I’m setting him back in our training and that I’m an athlete so I should know better. Umm this is where I’m still new as I figured that doing the 3.2 miles running isn’t as much as I do on a daily basis for my cardio so that it would be easier on me not harder, especially since I went easy on Monday and only did 2 miles (1 running and 1 walking interval) on Monday and then the Versa Climber. He wasn’t happy and made me feel horrible. He made me promise I wouldn’t do any more 5K’s unless he said it was okay.
He says that doing the 5K made my legs junk as I didn’t give myself time to recover and that because I did the 5K I didn’t have the power needed in my legs to do the 60 lb bar. It was very challenging and I expected it to be but as I did it more it got easier for me. He says that running the 3.2 miles on Sunday and then doing the 2 miles on Monday didn’t help and that I shouldn’t even be walking at work with one of my co-workers. He told me that I’m not trying to lose weight anymore so I shouldn’t be doing the running that the 5K would entail. I’m sorry I didn’t know that you only do 5k’s to lose weight and that you shouldn’t do them after the fact. Yeah I know my legs were tired and they are tired today as well but I didn’t know or think that it would result in me having a hard time living the 60 lb bar or that I wouldn’t be able to do as many reps as he wanted me to do with the squat press. Both exercises he has me do are hard no matter what. He also didn’t seem to think it hurt doing the chest press, the dips or the pull ups I have to do. He didn’t care my back was hurting when he was making me do the unassisted pull ups. I nailed my nose as well the first one I did but still had to keep going. He’s a fickle man. I would think he would be proud of me for getting out and racing and trying to be active throughout the weeks and weekends, but apparently it’s only if it benefits him. His scolding me saying that I’m setting us back and ruining his plan really hurt me and I told him that it bothered me. If he shared the plan with me then maybe I could plan what I want to do with MY LIFE better with his super secret schedule. Nothing like being scolded for something you pay for.
Pretty much that's what I'm feeling. Oh well he'll get over it.
