I worked out with a friend!

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

I've asked several of the people I know if they wanted to workout with me and all have said yes and then bailed...well this one didn't!

I went to the Y today with Paula and it was total fun!

I have to say that she impressed me greatly. Though she walks daily and is way smaller than me, I know that the elliptical can be hard due to the different muscles it works. She was struggling but she finished even though there were many times she wanted off. I helped her through it, telling her to lower her strides, and she got her second wind and came back to finish it. The most impressive thing though was the fact that she kept on and on about how she was tired and couldn't do it and all and then finished with "But I'm not going to quit."

It brings tears to my eye's just typing it.

I hope she comes back, it was total fun and we really pushed ourselves!
